The Promises of God We are sometimes like an eagle...
Looking down on all life brings...
But sometimes like a sparrow
Who can't seem to lift its wings.
Believers walk on many stages
In this performance billed as life.
At times it's like a three ring circus...
At other times it holds no strife.
The way is paved with many blessings
But holds its countless pit holes , too.
Yet if we're walking in the Spirit...
Satan has to let us through.
Setbacks scenes like pain and sorrow
Make attempts to block the way...
But God's promises are certain...
They're renewable each day.
Sometimes in our weakest moments ...
When all hell has broken loose...
When Satan whispers we'll go under...
When he is tightening the noose...
A super strength seems to shoot through us!
We know Whom we have believed!
Therefore we cannot be defeated!
And we will never be deceived!
Every promise of The Father
Is made available through Christ...
This is part of our inheritance...
He has already paid the price.
So, no matter what life throws us...
It won't matter in the end...
For we are promised life eternal!
The best is yet to come, my friend!

2 Corinthians 1:20New King James Version (NKJV) 20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes,
and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.
2 Peter 1:4 And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desire
Isaiah 40:29-31King James Version (KJV)
He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have
no might he increaseth strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the
young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their
strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they
shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn
from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you
will find rest for your souls.
