But even though God promises to protect our faith, we are not passive in this process.We must fight the fight of faith, labor in prayer and the Word, seek to obey Christ, and love others. That’s the next promise – You can also see this promise in Matthew 5:8; Matthew ; John ; Romans ; Hebrews ; and Revelation 21:6-7.But God wants us to open this treasure chest and see all the riches we have in his promises. God promises that full and lasting joy is found in himself; in knowing him as he is revealed in Jesus Christ.He wants us to see his promises, trust his promises, and be transformed by his promises. That’s what David says in Psalm (he’s speaking to God) – We can also see this promise in verses like Psalm 36:7-9; Psalm 63:1-2; Psalm -26; John ; Philippians 3:8; 1 Peter 1:8.

So when we turn from whatever else we’ve been trusting to satisfy us, and trust Jesus Christ to forgive us, change us, and satisfy us in himself — everything changes: This complete forgiveness, and all of God’s promises, are ours by faith alone in Christ alone, as Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:8-9. Trials weaken our faith; temptations undermine our faith. That’s the next promise — How can you be sure you will not turn from faith in Christ and end up facing God’s judgment? But he will keep you persevering in faith until you enter heaven.
It’s because God promises that if you are truly trusting him now. That’s what Paul says in Philippians 1:6 – You can also see this promise in Jeremiah ; Ezekiel -27; John -29; and Jude -25.
