I love it when God makes a promise! It means that it is something I can stand on in times of danger, temptation, sadness and loneliness. There are Truths in the bible about us and God that we can stand on. We have God’s solid unshakable word that it is so, and that it will come to pass!
For example, when you are feeling lonely, remember:
“Never will I leave you nor Forsake you” – Joshua 1:5
When you are feeling scared, remember:
“For I did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power love and sound mind” -2 Tim 1:7
But the BEST oath in my opinion that God made, is the one He made looking forward into the future to us, the new covenant believers, and gave the prophet Isaiah these words:
9 “To me this is like the days of Noah,
when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.
So now I have sworn not to be angry with you,
never to rebuke you again.
10 Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
says the LORD, who has compassion on you. – Isaiah 54
This is a oath God made directly to us, believers of the New covenant. Never again will god be angry with you, or rebuke you. Do you grasp how amazing this is! Whenever you feel guilty, condemned or that God is angry with you, remember this oath! When you are feeling any type of guilt, ander or condemnation now you know that it is not from God, it is from people of the devil! God made an oath that He will NEVER be angry with you, or load guilt or condemnation on you EVER again!
This is how awesome our God is!
