Special promises to the Poor

Are you poor?  God loves you and has special promises just for you.  He loves everyone, it doesn't matter to Him what our condition might be or how rich or poor we might be He has promises for all so that we might enjoy life eternal with Him.  He is there to help you!!  Trust Him.  Listen to these promises and let them take over your mind and trust Him.

Divine protection

Psalm 12:5  "For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord, I will set him in safety from him that puffs at him." (Puff meaning a short burst of breath or wind.)

He overshadows us

Isaiah 25:4  "For Thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall."

Answer to our prayer

Isaiah 41:17  "When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue fails them for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them."

Heavenly Inheritance

James 2:5  "Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he has promised to them that love Him?"

The Bible says that 'riches profits not in the day of wrath; but righteousness delivers from death." Proverbs 11:4.  So my friend, God loves you who are poor and will strengthen you in your distresses.  He will bless you when you trust in His promises.  He has promised you strength, and to be a refuge from the storm and a shadow from the heat of the terrible ones.   He has promised you safety, and that He will not forsake you.  He has chosen you to be heirs with Him in His kingdom, so trust Him and He will be with you, and put His arms of love around you and give you peace.  Grandma Joan
