Promise Hunt Results

Did anybody take time to write down promises in Scripture this week?  I didn't remember every single time I came across one, but I was able to get several written down.  Here they are:

God Promises...
  •  TO WORK ALL THINGS TOGETHER FOR GOOD
    • Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose." 
  • TO SUSTAIN US
    • Psalm 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."
  • TO PROTECT US
    • Psalm 91 (the whole chapter)
  • TO GIVE US WISDOM
    • James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."
  • TO NEVER FAIL, LEAVE, OR FORSAKE US
    • Hebrews 13:5 "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have; for He hath said, 'I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.'"
    • Deuteronomy 31:6 "Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail, nor forsake thee."
    • Deuteronomy 31:8 "And the LORD, He it is that doth go before thee; He will be with thee, He will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed."
  • TO GIVE A CROWN OF LIFE TO THOSE WHO LOVE HIM
    • James 1:12 "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him."
  • TO DRAW NEAR TO US
    • James 4:8a "Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you."
  • TO RAISE US UP IN CHRIST
    • 1 Corinthians 15:22 "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all  be made alive."

*Weepingly* Dearest, I was not able to do your challenge this week. :-( I wanted to, it just wasn't possible w/ the time my normal study took up. :-( After reading yours though I believe that I'm going to MAKE TIME to do it THIS week. Yours were such a blessing to read over this morning! Especially the promise that He will draw nigh to us...wow!
