CLAIMING GOD’S PROMISES

There are many promises of God in the Bible. While not every single promise in the Bible is meant for everyone there are MANY that are! We receive these promises through Christ. “For all the promises of God are “Yes” in Christ. And so through Him, our “Amen” is spoken to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)

One promise from the Old Testament is when God promised Joshua, “I will never leave you or forsake you” (Joshua 1:5) and in (Hebrews 13:5) God transfers that promise to us as Christians. 

THE PROMISE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Do you want the divine nature in your life? True Christians, having received God’s Holy Spirit, have been given a measure of that divine nature. This is one of the Bible’s most precious promises. On the day of Pentecost, the Apostle Peter stood before thousands to preach. “Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call’” (Acts 2:38–39).

CLAIMING THE PROMISES OF GOD

Now that we understand what promises are and how God is uniquely equipped and qualified to keep His promises, let’s get on to the business of claiming the promises of God.

THE PROMISE OF TRUE TREASURE

As Christ taught, and as Solomon learned, the true riches are available even to those who may be financially poor. Do you give honor and attention to those with healthy bank balances while neglecting those in financial difficulty? Are you neglecting those whom God is honoring? The Apostle James reminds us, “Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?” (James 2:5).

PRAYING THE PROMISES OF GOD

As I did this study on the promises of God, I asked God to show me one example from Scripture of someone who prayed His promises back to Him. One of the first examples the Spirit revealed to me was Daniel. I encourage you to read the full prayer in( Daniel 9:1-19) though I’ll summarize the story for you here.
