March 3: Joint Heir with God and His Promises

Again, let me say this morning, every one of the promises that God made to Abraham now belongs to us because we belong to Jesus Christ and are now heirs according to the promise. Just think of that for a moment. Every promise that God made to Abraham is part of your own spiritual inheritance! Romans 8:17, And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together (KJV).

Galatians 4:6, And because you are children, God sent out the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father! I sent the Spirit of My Son into your heart so you could call Me Father. The greatest gift that the Father could give us was the Spirit of His Son, Jesus. Each one who is born again carries within their being the very life and nature of Jesus Christ Himself (NLT).  Galatians 4:7, goes on to say… So, you are no longer a bondservant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” (WEB).

We have been promised that God can do the impossible. It’s in the Bible, Luke 18:27, NKJV. But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” “We have been promised Salvation; a new heart and desires. Ezekiel 36:26, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. We have been promised forgiveness (NKJV). As we read the many promises of God from the Bible scriptures below, be aware of the conditions we must meet to gain the benefits from these promises. 1 John 1:9, If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (NKJV).

  • We have been promised that our sins will be far removed from us. Psalm 103:12, As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us (NKJV).
  • We have been promised that our sins will be buried. Micah 7:19, He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea (NKJV).
  • We have been promised the fruit of the Spirit and as a believer, will have these virtues as stated in Galatians 5:22-23, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law (NKJV).
  • We are promised the Holy Spirit. If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!  Luke 11:13, The Holy Spirit will guide you and show you the truth (NKJV).  John 16:13, …When he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come (KJV).
  • We have been promised to have no lack of anything that is needed. Psalms 34:9-10, Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear (reverence) Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing (NKJV). 
  • We have been promised that God will take care of your day-to-day needs.  Matthew 6:31-34, Therefore, do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things, the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble (NKJV).
  • You have been promised as you meditate on God’s word your way will be prosperous. Joshua 1:8, This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then, you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success (NKJV). 

We are told to test God and see if He will bless you with more than you can hold. Malachi 3:10-11, Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. ‘And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,’ says the Lord of hosts (NKJV).

We have been promised that all of our needs will be supplied. Philippians 4:19, And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (NKJV).

 God promised to give the best He had, and He did by giving us His only Son. Romans 8:32, He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things (NKJV)?

We have been promised that God does not hold back anything that is for your benefit or good. Psalm 84:11, For Jehovah God is our Light and our Protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk along his paths (TLB).

  • We have been promised of health and healing. Jeremiah 30:17, For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,’ says the Lord (NKJV). 

God promises are for all believers. Do you believe it? Find the promises in the Word that you need today. Believe the promises that are written and given to you, for as you believe by faith, you will receive those promises waiting for you.

– Commit all that you do to me, and your plans will be successful. Proverbs 16:3

Every promise in the Bible is yes and Amen! Let’s look at a few more of God’s promises, which have been given to His most valuable creation. Ask, seek, and knock, for God will not refuse you. He loves His children. This morning, we will look at twenty-two more promises written in the Bible for you and for me.

  • God promises health to us if we listen. Exodus 15:26, and said, If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I [am] the LORD who heals you (NKJV).

  • We have been promised the devil will flee if we submit and draw near to God. We as believers must resist the devil, and He will flee as stated in James 4:7-10, Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up (NKJV)

  • We have been promised protection from harm and danger. Psalm 91:4-6, He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

  • We have been promised safety. It’s in the Bible, Proverbs 18:10, The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe (NKJV).

  • We are promised that fear is removed through Godly love. 1 John 4:18, There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us (NKJV). 
  • We have been promised in the Bible that the dead will live again. John 5:28-29, Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation (NKJV). 
  • Jesus has promised that He will come again. John 14:2-3, In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

  • We have been promised that the dead will be raised again. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18, For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one another with these words (NKJV). 
  • We have been promised an end to death, sorrow, and pain. Revelation 21:4, And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away (NKJV)
