31 Promises of God for the Believer


The Bible says that all of God’s promises are yes in Christ. We can claim these promises for ourselves as believers and stand on them as on a strong foundation, just as the old songs says, “I’m standing on the promises of God!” Since this is true, I began to ponder what promises I should claim for myself and use as encouragement for difficult days. I chose 31 different promises from scripture to add to my prayer notebook so that I would have one each day to remind me of the goodness of God and the wonderful things He has done and will do for me. I plan to use these each morning and thank God for the promise of the day and allow the scripture to strengthen me for whatever the day may bring. I hope you are encouraged by this list. Our God is good!

Welcome to Faith Over Fifty. As a young wife and mother it seemed pretty clear that God's will for my life was to love God, love my husband and raise my children to know and love Jesus. Life revolved around balancing my career as a teacher with being a homemaker. Now that I am over fifty, my children are grown, and retirement is looming ever closer, the big question becomes what does God want from me during this phase of life? How can I continue to impact the next generation? What does faith over fifty really look like? I hope you will join me on my quest to seek out God's will for my life as I strive to live for Him and finish the race well.
