Marjorie Vawter Top 100 Promises of the Bible & Giveaway

Author Marjorie Vawter

Over the years, I’ve written several devotional books. I wrote Top 100 Promises of the Bible in the middle of a move from SW Missouri back to Colorado. It was difficult to write, mostly because of not having our own home at the time. Friends opened their home to us, and for four and a half months we searched for a house to rent. (The housing in the Denver area is SO expensive and ridiculously out of line, but God provided.) The more I wrote, the more I realized how many of the promises we’d chosen to write about were being fulfilled each day. God truly revealed Himself as I struggled to find time to write. 

The back cover of the  Top 100 Promises of the Bible copy says, “The Bible is full of thousands of God’s promises, and here are the top 100 most powerful, challenging, and encouraging guarantees in scripture. These brief devotional readings provide thought-provoking inspirational takeaways and will encourage you to deepen your faith in God’s provision and steadfastness. Concise entries provide biblical details such as the circumstances surrounding the promise, the fulfillment of the promise, and how it applies to our lives today. Ideal for readers of all ages, The Top 100 Promises of the Bibleis perfect for personal reading or group study.”

God opened up an opportunity for me to teach the material to a small group of ladies at my church after I wrote the book. It was a perfect way to solidify His promises to each of us during the discussion time.

  1. These sound so encouraging and in this day and age we need to focus on God, His Word and Whatsoever is in Philippians 4:8.. we really need to think on that when posting on social media and our blogs for sure... there is enough negative press out there today to distract us... I am so glad to see something encouraging and I so look for this today !!!
    Blessings
