When do you get personal peace when you feel like you've gone into free fall after a bungy jump?

Peace comes when you know...
what to do next
when to speak
what to say
where to go
why you’re here
but especially...
whom to trust to land you in a safe place.

The kind of trust of really deep down in your gut kind of certainty that this one will pull you through.

It’s called faith.

Have you discovered your own promises from God...for comfort? For help? For peace? The sort of assurances that penetrate past your doubts? Every bit of unbelief? 

He’s got words meant straight from His heart to yours. Find them. Listen to them. Allow them to permeate deep within until you know He will not withhold any good thing from you.

When’s the last time you’ve claimed promise verses for yourself and those you love? Below you’ll find a few samples to examine.

Note the context.
Detect what comes before and after too.
Pay attention to any pre-conditions to be met.
Memorize the key ones.

Every good thing the Lord had promised them came true. (Joshua 21:45 TLB)

Psalm 4:8 - promise of sleep and safety.
Psalm 29:11 - promise of strength and peace.
Psalm 55:16-19 - assurance of deliverance from threats of harm.

Isaiah 32:17 - promise of peace, quietness and confidence.
Isaiah 33:6 - promise of salvation, wisdom and knowledge.
Isaiah 54:10 - promise of peace, no matter what.
Proverbs 16:7 - promise of peace with enemies.
Matthew 6:33,34 - promise of provision of every need on this day.

Matthew 11:28-30 - promise of rest for the weary.
