 1. God will provide all that you need.

“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

3. God will answer you.

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3

4. God will strengthen you.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1

5. God will not fail you.

“I will not fail you or forsake you.” Joshua 1:5

6. God will help you.

”For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13

“And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8

10. God will bless you

“Every good and perfect gift is from above.” James 1:17

If you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior—
you can further rejoice and rest in the following promises below, reserved for those who trust in Jesus:

* God will not withhold good from you

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” Psalm 84:11

* God will work all your circumstances to good.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

* God will deliver you from all your problems

“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles.” Psalm 34:17

“The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.” Psalm 34:19

If you don't know Jesus as your Savior, learn how you can receive His free gift of salvation now! Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior is the best decision you'll ever make!

I pray these things encourage you and cause you to eagerly anticipate the good things the Lord is going to do in your life in 2013. Happy New Year!

Question for you: What good things are you anticipating to take place in 2013?
