Introduction

This lesson takes a look at the promises of God and what it means for the Bible believing Christian. Accepting and living out God's promises is the key foundation for experiencing God in a personal daily way. His promises teaches us to accept that what He says He will do, He will do, because we have learned to accept Him for who He says He is. This leads us into a deeper love relationship with God.
