Living In The Promises

Living in God’s promises day by day will set you free from the things that keep you from experiencing victorious Christian living and the abundant life.

Jesus said,

A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.
John 10:10 HCSB

On this morning I spent quiet moments sitting here with the Lord just after sunrise. I have been living in the promises, one after another, day by day, and asking God to use them to influence my thinking, my faith, my ministry, and all my life all for His great glory. I sat thinking about all the promises He took me to during the week, and all the ramifications of them. I had such a sense of peace – no fear, no anxiety, no worry – and a great assurance that God keeps all His promises. Thank You Lord, for all You are teaching me. And just then, the sun rose, shining brightly down upon me there in the beauty of His creation.

And sometimes God does indeed break through all the clouds and just shines through letting you know He is with you, He loves you, He has His hand on you, He will help you, and carry you no matter what the storm is that you may be in just now. I love the promises from Psalm 118:5-8 NIV “In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and He answered by setting me free. The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? The LORD is with me, He is my helper. I will look in triumph on my enemies. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.”

Need to be set free from anything? Maybe worries, doubts, fears are holding you captive? Cry out to the Lord in prayer. And live in His promises. You will find that talking with the Lord in prayer unleashes amazing power through His Spirit, and chases away things that hold you captive, sets you free, and ushers in peace and joy.

And living in His promises, day after day will give you hope and courage and great faith.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
