The problem with the prosperity gospel–the belief that God wants you healthy and wealthy–is not that it promises too much, but that it promises way too little. It forfeits the pattern of suffering now, glory later, which runs through the New Testament. Such teaching is also deceiving because it can lead people to despair, for they can believe that God is not coming through on His promises when they get sick or lose their money. So what does God actually promise us? There are many promises of God that we as Christian can bank on, but here is a sampling of ten always true promises:

1. God works out all things for our good–to look like Jesus (Romans 8:28-29)

2. God forgives all of our sin (Romans 8:1)

3. If we walk by the Spirit, we won’t carry out the evil desires lodged in our hearts (Galatians 5:16)

4. We will be persecuted for our faith (2 Timothy 3:12)

5. If we endure to the end, we will be saved (Matthew 24:13)

6. Jesus will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5; Matthew 28:20)

7. God will give us wisdom, if we ask in faith (James 1:5-8)

8. God will forgive us when we confess our sins (1 John 1:9)

9. God will complete His work among us at the Second Coming of Jesus (Philippians 1:6)

10. God will be our God forever, and we will be His people (Revelation 21:3)
