In an ever-moving, uncertain world, it almost seems impossible to know anything definitively.  It feels like things are always changing, like life is a roller-coaster with a bunch of unexpected twists, turns and drops.  This can be absolutely exhausting! But the thing is, even when the world changes, our God doesn’t.  He is our Firm Foundation.  He is our Constant.  He is our Forever.  And on top of that, He has made several promises to us; about His character, His aid and His love.  So even though you might not be able to know everything that will happen, you can know His promises are true and that they will be present in your life.  Listed below are some of the promises that the Lord has made to us.
