Promises of God
Promises Of God are the kind declarations of his Word, in which he hath assured us he will bestow blessings upon his people. The promises contained in the sacred Scriptures may be considered,
1, divine as to their origin; 2, suitable as to their nature; 3, abundant as to their number; 4, clear as to their expression;
5, certain as to their accomplishment. The consideration of them should, 1, prove an antidote to despair; 2, a motive to patience; 3, a call for prayer; 4, a spur to perseverance.
