God’s promises are for all His kids, even you

Read: Psalm 36:5-9, Romans 8:35-39, Proverbs 3:5-12

Sometimes, we have a hard time trusting God’s promises because we think they only apply to other people. You know, perfect people, the ones who seem to do everything right and have it all together. 

The truth is no one is perfect, and God’s promises apply to us all. What makes God’s promises different are who they are coming from. 

Unlike our imperfect, fickle affections, God’s love never fails and never ends. Romans 8:38 boldly promises, “neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” No matter who we are, how much money we make, or how many times we’ve failed or disappointed God, He never stops loving us.

We will make mistakes, but those mistakes don’t disqualify us from experiencing God’s promises. Like a good father, God disciplines His children for their protection and their good (Proverbs 3:12). But don’t mistake God’s discipline for Him giving up on you. 

Even our failures can be fertile ground to experience God’s promises. It was through tough times that the psalmist learned to trust God (Psalm 119:71).  It was after failing time and time again to keep the law that God’s people received eternal rescue through Jesus (Micah 7:8). 

Life on earth can feel like a never-ending avalanche of broken promises. People leave or neglect to follow through. Confidences are broken, and trust erodes. We begin to buy the lie that people will only love us when we’re at our best.   

God is not like us. His love is unfailing. He has never lost track of time or forgotten about His creation (Psalm 36:5-9). And it’s because God is not like us that we can have confidence in His promises. 


  • Do you struggle to trust God’s promises? Why or why not?
  • Have you ever felt like you weren’t “good enough” for God? Based on what you read today, what would God say to that?
  • How does it feel to know that God’s love for you never ends and never fails? As you sit in that feeling, take a few minutes to speak back to God in prayer.
