This morning I would like to write on great possibilities of the promises of God; through prayer working together in our lives for the glory of God.
For we can say that Prayer and the Promises of God work together. In other words, without the promise, prayer is just words without foundation.
The same goes without prayer; the promise is dim, voiceless and distant. Yes, the promise makes prayer determined with confidence, bold and irresistible.
As the apostle Peter declares that God has given to us “exceeding great and precious promises.”
These promises are the very words that will be made operative and efficient by prayer… words which clearly indicate their great value and broad reach, the very grounds upon which to base our expectations in prayer.
As a believer we are to follow the principles of God’s Word and aligning our lives accordingly. In other words, we must have an obedient heart, for when God speaks we must be obedient.
God has spoken in His Word, we must be obedient. Now, with that said, the promises are glorious to the believer and the whole church.
- These promises are to those of a prayerful heart spoken with faith. Prayer is what makes the promise fruitful and a reality. God’s promises cover all things which pertains to life and godliness, which relate to body, soul and spirit, which all have to do with time and eternity.
- These promises are the very fruit to be plucked by the hand of prayer…to be sown and tilled by prayer.
Are you beginning to see what I see? God gave us promises in which we can relay upon during our times of prayer. Our prayer truly becomes fruit bearing, when we pray the answer found in the promise.
Again let me say, prayer and the promises are co-dependent. The very key to answered prayer is realizing that the promises inspires and energizes prayer, and that prayer locates the promise, and gives it realization and location.
Prayer that takes hold of these promises until they become personal, blessed, refreshed and fertilized; accomplishing it to its marvelous ends, removes the obstacles and makes a highway for the promise to its fulfillment.
God’s promises are clear, to be taken specific and personal.
Prayer is submission to God based on the purpose and promise of God. Prayer is the communication that moves God.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
