Promises of God in the Bible to Claim Everyday

What are the promises of God in the Bible to His followers? 

Why do they matter? 

How does knowing them change us? 

women lays on her stomach on a rug with her Bible open in front of her reading God's promises. Text overlay says "55 promises of God in the Bible."

Over the course of the summer, I felt God prompting me often about His promises to me. Sometimes it would be a Bible verse that just popped into my head or a lyric from a worship song or words that leapt off the page while I was reading them. I began to see over and over again the great promises of God in the Bible.

I know my Heavenly Father He has given me so many good gifts–precious promises to give us hope, joy, peace, wisdom and strength for whatever we are facing in our day. It breaks my heart to know that so many Christian women out there are DESPERATE to see those promises fulfilled in their everyday lives. 

But they feel unsure of what exactly God has promised them. They’d love to know where and how to find a promise in God’s Word. They feel doubtful if some promises are even for THEM and their messy, ordinary lives. If you’re one of those people, I hope that this list of 40 promises of God in Scripture will encourage your heart today. 

God is for you. He loves you. He has given you in the Bible promises meant to bless you in the spiritual, emotional, relational, and physical realms.

How many promises of God are there in the Bible? 

In the book All the Promises of the Bible, the author Herbert Locklear found 7,147 promises from God to man in the Bible. 

That is a lot of promises. 

Which leads us to the other end of the spectrum of having an overwhelming amount of promises and not even knowing what to do with them. 

That’s why I created my 30 Days to Claiming the Promises of God Bible Study carefully choosing the promises I found most powerful for today’s Christian women and spending 30 days immersed and meditating on God’s promises to us in song, Scripture journaling, and Bible reading.

I also break down the ways the prosperity gospel has twisted the promises of God and unpack them in their context so we can fully grasp all that they mean for us in hard times and our daily lives.

  8. Hello,
    I am praying about leading a Bible study for some ladies in my neighborhood. None of them attend church, are a wide age span, and come from very different backgrounds. I love reading about God’s promises, so thought maybe this would be a good place to start or would you recommend something else? This is a book, right?
    Thank you,

    1. Hi Teresa, it is a printable 30 day guided Bible study so each day there is a verse to read, Scripture writing, journaling question and worship song of the day that goes with the promise. In addition there are 3 Bible study videos where we dig deeper into the context and history of the promises and one workshop where we see some of the pitfalls that trip people up when it comes to the promises of God. I do think this is a very good intro study–we have a lot of young believers at our church and I always keep that in mind when I write my studies. 🙂 I’m happy to get you a group rate if you decide to do it!

      1. I am sorry! I just saw this! I have been emailing you to order at the group rate. I just placed my order, so I can be familiar with the material before we start to meet.
