So let's be honest. People let us down. They will always continue to let us down, because we're human . Not only will people let us down, but we also let other people down . But one thing that stands true is the Bible . If you're asking yourself today why reading the Bible is so important , well let me just say that there are a gazillion reasons why reading your Bible is important . One of those reasons is that it's faithful and true . If you're dealing with issues of trust in your life whether it's trusting other people , trusting a situation, or trusting yourself , starting your journey on Bible reading, will overtime help you cope with those things .
The Good Book is full of God's promises. He promises to love us forever. Those promises include forgiveness, wisdom, and instruction. Christ promises guidance, and encouragement for everyday life. He never fails at bringing comfort and healing. His everlasting love is an assurance to turn our mourning into dancing, and our weaknesses into strengths.
The Apostle Peter wrote: in 2 Peter 1:4 "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that buy these ye might be partakers of the divine nature." This is one of many verses where God's promises are precious because they pertain to the most meaningful and Needful Things in our lives. They are great because they go beyond anything we could have ever hoped for, or imagined. Just imagine the scope and power of these.
The Bible also tells us that God's ways are unsearchable. It's even far beyond our ability to even fathom. His promises reveal His true character. The same promises show us that Christ is gracious and compassionate, full of mercy and truth. Christ shows us that he is majestic and mysterious, filled with holy passion and Power. But most of all, his promises show us that he is faithful and has been faithful, not just to the Patriarchs and the apostles, but each of us, from then until now.
