March 2: The Greatness of God’s Promises

In today’s thoughts, we have great promises from God written in the Bible . Throughout the Bible we can find great and mighty promises for those who will believe and receive.

Just an added note; many of the promises are conditional. Here is a promise:

What God says He will fulfill! We have been promised that God will not take back a single word. The promises of God are for us to believe by faith and receive. As stated in Psalm 89:34, No, I will not break my covenant; I will not take back one word of what I said (TLB). The promises of God are for you and for me. 2 Corinthians 1:20, For all the promises of God in Him are yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us (NKJV).  None of God’s promises will ever fail as stated in Joshua 23:14, …not one word has failed of all the good things that the LORD your God promised concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed (ESV).

John 3:16 is one of the most quoted, most loved Bible verses in the New Testament. This Scripture has been used by evangelists over the years to invite many people to come to Christ. The foundation of this much-loved verse is and always will be the love of the Father. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (KJV).

I believe the greatest promise in God’s Word is the promise of salvation available to all who will believe and receive which also includes the promise of eternal life. Yes, He has given you eternal life because you have believed in Jesus Christ…1 John 2:25, and this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life (NKJV).  He promises to shield us and deliver us from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 27:10 says it this way… You who love the Lord, hate evil! He protects the lives of his godly people and rescues them from the power of the wicked (NLT). 

A promise on how to find God… If you search for Me with all your heart, you will find Me…Jeremiah 29:13, You shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart (WEB).

Searching involves all of your body. It must come from the depths of your heart, being truthful; which will include giving your mind, your will, your emotions and your spirit to God and allowing the Holy Spirit to have full reign in/ to the situation you are asking. If searching for (more of God) or simply an answer to a situation; one must be open to God, surrendering/ yielding our mind, soul and spirit to God and allow the Holy Spirit to guide, direct and lead us into the truth.

Meeting the condition of the promise will go a long way in receiving the promise. Trust and acknowledge God in all our ways. As we die to self, learn and walk out the character of Christ, we can begin to see the rewards of God’s blessings and His promises being fulfilled. Galatians 3:29, If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to promise. Since you are in Christ, I have made you an heir of all my promises (WEB).

Yes, as believers in Christ , we are made an heir of all His promises. Read God’s Word, the Bible. Believe His Word for you and live life to its fullness, enjoy this life on earth in Christ Jesus!
