Promises for Spiritual Growth

Break Those Curses!

Promises for perseverance in adversity


I will persevere in the midst of adversity, persecution, suffering, trials, and tribulation. God has promised that all things will work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purposes. Many excellent and productive things are birthed in the furnace of affliction. God has also promised that I can rejoice in sufferings because it will produce perseverance, character, and hope (Ps. 119:67; Isa. 43:2; 48:10; 54:7; Rom. 5:1-4; 8:18, 28; 2 Cor. 4:17; James 5:13; 1 Pet. 4:13).


I will allow the spirit of patience and joy to rule my life and possess my soul. Psalm 23 is a promise that God is able to keep me in the midst of all circumstances. My patience will produce in me God’s promises as an inheritance (Luke 21:19; Heb. 6:1; James 1:2-8).


The Lord upholds and sustains me with His right hand, Christ Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father, who will save me. “Though I walk in the midst of trouble…Your right hand will save me” (Ps. 34:19; 37:24; 50:15; 138:7; Mic. 7:8).


Promises for guidance and wisdom

            A person may be very educated and intelligent in the things of the world. But in the supernatural spiritual realm, we need the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit of God. Without it we miss out on the best part of our success. Without it we won’t be able to see the enemy when he slips in.


The Lord guides my feet with His eye. .You also guide me with your counsel, and You guide me into all truth (Ps. 32:8; 73:24; John 16:13).


God’s Word is a lamp and a light. “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Ps. 119:105). The Lord directs my steps (Prov. 16:9; Isa. 45:13).


I am blessed when I hear, obey, and do God’s Word. This promise is for me and my household (Luke 11:28).


My house is full of good things. As I fill my heart and obey the Word of God and His wisdom, my house will always be full of good things (Deut. 6:6-11).


The Holy Spirit teaches me wisdom. The testimony of the Lord is sure, making me wise (Ps. 19:7). “Happy is the man who finds wisdom” (Prov. 3:13). “Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established” (Prov. 24:3).


God’s wisdom is a defense and life to me. “For wisdom is a defense as money is a defense, but the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to those who have it” (Eccles. 7:12). “Wisdom brings success” (Eccles. 10:10).


The Lord’s guidance leads me to success. As long as I seek guidance from the Lord, God will give me success (2 Chron. 26:5). “The path of the just is like the shining sun” (Prov. 4:18). “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way you should go” (Isa. 48:17).


The promise of rejoicing


I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great shall be my reward. I will be glad and rejoice in the Lord for His abundance of everything. I will love the Lord with gladness (Deut. 24:47; Ps. 100:2; 126:3; Matt. 5:12).


The joy of the Lord is my strength. God promises to refresh us with the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that he might be glorified (Neh. 8:10; Isa. 61:3).


I will offer sacrifices of joy to my Lord for he lifts my head above my enemies all around me (Ps. 27:6).
