My Preferred Bible For Bible Studying
I’ve always loved my bibles. I have a few good ones with articles and nuggets of wisdom spread throughout. Some from I’m sure you’ve heard of before, and then others you might not have.
But with all these bibles, I wanted a study bible. One where I can read the scriptures and the commentarily read what it meant, about that time period, the basis of the words, why it was so significant and so on. Not every bible study will provide every bit of this information for every single verse out there.
But I did find a study bible that helps me understand the verses I’m studying.
And that’s the NLT version study bible called the Life Application Study Bible by Tyndale.

Why NLT? I’d been reading the NIV (New International Version) for years and years. And when it came time to explain verses to my kids, as well as help the comprehend verses upon their own independent reading time, I wanted them to not get lost in the text. I wanted a version that helped them elaborate on the scripture.
I had to make a decision to choose which version I was going to get them their bibles in. and then stick with that version. I wanted us to study the Word together, all in the same version for simplicity’s sake.
After much prayer, I decided to go with the NLT versions for my kids’ bibles as well as my own study bible.
I still have and love reading my NIV bibles. But I love studying my NLT one too!
And when I mark it up in my study, it helps me retain that information so much better!!
I recommend Mr. Pen’s Bible highlighters and pens because they don’t bleed through the thin bible pages!

How many promises of God are recorded in the Bible?
The word promise itself occurs over 50 times in the King James Version of the Bible.
According to my personal research, I’ve surmised there are approximately 3,500 promises of God in the bible! Wow, right? I love it!!
However, I was doing more researching and one account said 8,000 times, another said 3500, and even another said anywhere between 3,000 to 33,000. Ummm …. wow. Yeah, that’s a big gap there.
So I’m not entirely too sure, and I’m not a bible scholar so I can’t say for sure. However, I’m comfortable wih my own researched number of 3,500. So if you think different, feel free to share in the comments – just know it’s what I’ve discovered. (I actually think there are more.)
Some of my favorites include:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
All things work together for good to those who love God. (Romans 8:28)
He will never leave me nor forsake me. (Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5)
Cast all my anxiety on Him because He cares for me. (1 Peter 5:7)
Promises of God in the Bible to Claim for Your Life
I love praying the promises of God as they are so full of power behind them. I mean, they’re GOD’S PROMISES!!! To YOU and me!! Like, wow? God cares enough about you to promise things to you to keep you safe, feel safe, and like Him.
- I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)
- I am a child of God. (John 1:12)
- I am redeemed. (Ephesians 1:7)
- I am forgiven. (Colossians 2:13)
- I am loved. (Romans 8:39)
- I am saved. (Ephesians 2:8)
- I am healed. (Isaiah 53:5)
- I am safe. (Proverbs 18:10)
- I am strong. (Philippians 4:13)
- I am not alone. (Hebrews 13:5)
What does it mean to “claim a promise”?
To claim a promise means to appropriate it for oneself by declaring it or speaking it out loud in faith. It is an act of faith and trust that God will do what He has said He will do.
When we claim a promise, we are saying that we believe it is true for us and that we are depending on God to fulfill His part.
For example, let’s say you are going through a difficult situation and you claim the promise of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” This is an act of faith, believing that God will give you the strength you need to get through whatever you are facing.
It is also important to remember that claiming a promise does not guarantee that the situation will immediately change. However, it is a declaration of faith that God is faithful and He will do what He has promised.
How many types of promises of God in the Bible are there?
There are a few different types of promises made in the Bible. When praying the promises of God, think about these types as you pray and even include each one throughout your prayers!
1. Promises made by God to man
Gensis 12:1-3: Now the Lord saidto Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Exodus 3:7-10: Then the Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites. And now, behold, the cry of the people of Israel has come to me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”
2. Promises made by man to God
Numbers 30:2: If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.
Joshua 24:15: And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
3. Promises made by man to man
Psalm 15:4: In whose eyes a vile person is despised, but who honors those who fear the Lord; who swears to his own hurt and does not change.
Proverbs 6:1-5: My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor, have given your pledge for a stranger, if you are snared in the words of your mouth, caught in the words of your mouth, then do this, my son, and save yourself, for you have come into the hand of your neighbor: go, hasten, and plead urgently with your neighbor. Give your eyes no sleep and your eyelids no slumber; save yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
4. Prophetic promises
Isaiah 7:14: Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Luke 1:30-33: And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”
Knowing the different types of promises can help us to understand them better and apply them to our lives accordingly.

What is the most important promise in the Bible?
This is a difficult question to answer because there are so many great promises in the Bible! However, the most important promise may be found in John 3:16-17 where it shows god’s love for us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”
This is one of the most important promises – if not *the* most important promise – because it tells us that God loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. Whoever believes in Jesus will not perish but will have eternal life. This is the greatest gift that God has given to us- His Son! There are many other great promises in the Bible, but this one is one of the most important ones because it gives us hope for eternal life.
The Holy Spirit came from this and that’s what the Trinity is! Jesus is a gift of God and His love for us. He stays at the righteous right hand of God.
When you pray, you can pray with perfect peace knowing God is with you through all the good things in life as well as through all the difficult times. He’s with us through financial needs, if we need /want a particular thing, or if we simply need to feel His unfailing love.
Talk to God like family, like the family of Israel. Lord Jesus Christ will cover your entire family with the glory of God and His good works. All the promises of the bible is the truth of God. Every family member is covered by the blood of Christ Jesus.
Be sure you stay in God’s word. The word of God is there in time of need and in your day to day lives. As you live your own lives, know that the love of God is with you. The bible is all you need to fight the enemy! It’s full of amazing promises and it’s full of the Lord’s good promises!
What was the first promise in the Bible?
The first promise in the Bible was made by God to Abraham. He promised to make him a great nation and to bless him (Genesis 12:1-3). This was the beginning of the Abrahamic Covenant which is an everlasting covenant between God and His people.
