That God has said, “No!” So they give up and move on--and lose out on the blessing.With copious examples from the Bible, The Promising God will—for the first time--pull back the curtain on God’s promise-keeping methodology in easy to understand language. To prepare you. So you don’t give up on the promised things and lose out on the blessings.The second problem is that most Christians know only a handful of Biblical promises. That’s a problem, because God gives most of his blessings through his promises. The Christians who know more of God’s promises, believe them and know how to use them, will experience far more blessings. The Promising God will show you how.In The Promising God, author and theologian Richard Bucher reintroduces us to the God that Christians worship. He truly is the promising God. Promise-making and keeping is not just another of his divine characteristics. It is an essential aspect of his identity as God. It is who he is. It is what he does.In the pages of The Promising God you’ll also find dozens and dozens of promises. In Chapter Two alone, Dr. Bucher provides concise commentary on 50 of the greatest promises of the Bible.Where God promises to:•give you whatever you ask him in prayer•provide you with all that you need•rescue you from your troubles•guide and direct you•renew and revitalize you•give you peace of mind•and countless more.And there is so much more. The book will show you:•10 reasons why God fulfills his promises in such a strange way.•Why “If it was going to happen, it would have happened by now” is almost never true•Why God often takes so long to answer our prayer.•That God doesn’t require us to be doubt-free. He does expect us fight through our doubts. The book will show you how.•That the keeping of God’s promises depends on his character, not ours.•That if your life has worsened while you’ve been waiting for what God promised to happen, it is probably a good sign, not a bad one!•That not knowing how God fulfills his promises has led many to downgrade their expectations for God, guaranteeing that they will receive far fewer blessings.
