GOD’S PROMISES ARE PHENOMENAL – Vs. 1

As you read the Bible, you may find many of God’s promises to be phenomenal as well.
MAN’S SKEPTICISM IS PREDICTABLE – Vs. 2
Some people are always skeptical of God’s promises. One of the king’s servants was. Elisha promised that the man would see it, but not partake of it.

When God provides for you, you will have more than enough! Philippians 4:9
GOD’S WORD IS PLAUSIBLE – Vss. 16-20
No matter how unrealistic God’s promises may seem, they are always plausible, because God promises to keep His promises.
