BIBLE VERSE FOR TUESDAY

Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells
2 Peter 3:13
Perhaps the most important lesson children learn growing up is trust the promises of a parent. "I'll be there at three o'clock to pick you up." Yes, you can go to summer camp this year. Despite best intentions sometimes life intervenes and promises aren't kept. But if children learn that promises are a pathway through problems, they will learn to trust God's promises, too.
God has made lots of promises to His people, beginning with promises to Noah after the Flood ad later to Abraham. Throughout the ages, God's bedrock promise has been of new heavens and a new earth. When life life on this earth gets difficult, as it is bound to do, we have the promise that something better is coming. That promise may not dull the immediate pain of the present, but it gives us hope. We know that God has not forgotten us. We have Hs great and precious promises to depend on. And unlike human promises, God promises never fail.
Make a habit of noting God's promises when you read the Bible. They are a lifeline that pulls us through the bumps in this world to the bliss of the next. The whole covenant is a bundle of promises.
