Inherited Promises

There are promises that God has given in his word; in fact, the Scriptures are spangled with them. The stars in the sky are scarcely more abundant, and they scarcely shine with greater luster than the promises scattered up and down God's word; and though the day will come when the sun will hide its light, and star after star will be extinguished, the promises in all their glorious fulfillment shall shine forth in inextinguishable light, for the word of God endures forever.

[Joseph Philpot]

2 Corinthians 1:20 ... For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

2 Peter 1:4 ... Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Hebrews 6:12 ... That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.❤
