The Lord Keeps His Promises

"All things are possible to the Lord, and He keeps the promises He inspires His prophets to declare. Eternity is a long time. Have faith in those promises, and live to be worthy of them so that in His time the Lord can make them come true in your life. With certainty, you will receive every promised blessing for which you are worthy. I pray that it will be on this side of the veil."

Elder Richard G. Scott - "To Have Peace and Happiness" - BYU Dev. Sept. 12, 2010


"It's important to be sure we agree on the nature of the problem. Time passes at a fixed rate and we can't store it. You can just decide what to do with it or not to do with it. Now, if you will look honestly at your own performance over the last few days, you will notice a paradox."

"Child of Promise" - Henry B. Eyring - BYU Speeches, May 4, 1986


"Faith, the spiritual ability to be persuaded of promises that are seen 'afar off'. . . , is a sure measure of those who truly believe."

Anne C. Pingree 173rd Semiannual General Conference, October 2003


By Helen Steiner Rice:

When God makes a promise,
It remains forever true,
For everything God promises
He unalterably will do.
When you're disillusioned
And every hope is blighted
Recall the promises of God
And your faith will be relighted.

Quoted by Elder Kenneth Johnson, November 2008 Ensign, p. 17 "Restoring Faith in the Family"


"In this age of one hour dry cleaning and one minute fast food franchises, it may at times seem to us as though a loving Heavenly Father has misplaced our precious promises or He has put them on hold or filed them under the wrong name. . . "When heaven's promises sometimes seem afar off, I pray that each of us will embrace these exceeding great and precious promises and never let go. . . . God will remember you."

Spencer J. Condie, "Claim the Exceeding Great and Precious Promises," Ensign, Nov. 2007, 18
