“Nothing compares to the promise I have in you.” Those are lyrics from my favorite spiritual song Shout To the Lord. They’re some of the most powerful and truest words there are.
Gods promise to us is heaven and Gods promise to us is salvation through his son Jesus. We don’t have to do anything special to earn it, we just have to believe in God and the cross. God has given us the promise that our sins will be washed away if we ask for forgiveness, and there is no greater promise.
Gods promise of an eternal life in heaven is better than any promise that anyone can make us. It’s a promise that lasts forever and ever. It’s a promise that can’t be taken away from us. God has promised us a home where we’ll be happy and pain free for all eternity, and no promise can be better.
When times are down, I always think about this promise. It’s a promise of all things that are good and holy. It’s a promise that makes all the bad things and troubles of the world not matter at all. I hope that you’ll think about Gods promise too when things are bad for you.
