If God doesn’t
promise something in His Word, we shouldn’t be disappointed when He doesn’t do that very thing. He doesn’t promise to make you rich, or handsome, or famous.
Many faithful Christians have been poor, lonesome, and unknown. Does this mean God failed them? No! Jesus never promised to make this life perfect. In fact He said we would have trials and tribulation. But Jesus does promise to remain with us through it all.
St. Paul tells us in Romans, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” [Romans 8:39]. One glorious promise of Scripture is that no difficulty of this life can separate us from the love of God.
If God didn’t tell us He would do something in the Bible, then we shouldn’t be disappointed when He doesn’t. But there are many things He does promise and we can cling to His promises through the ups and downs of life!
In order to better reach your world, I think it is essential that you know a good number of the promises of God. Study them, memorize them, and share them with others. They have great power.
