Believe God's Great Promises

Focus Verse: "For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God." (2 Corinthians 1:20, NIV).

God gives us so many promises. They are not just promises, but statements and affirmations of his own nature of love and goodness. His promises are "Yes" in Christ, and God wants these promises to manifest in our lives and circumstances, as we stand in our position in Christ.


If we want the results of God's promises to show in our lives we must believe his Word. We must respond to his promises with an "Amen," that is, in total agreement that his promises are true. God wants us to stand on his Word, no matter what situation we face.



In the YouTube video above, we are encouraged to learn to find new trust in God, to listen to God's voice, that is, to listen to his promises with  the trust of a child. We are to trust God to do exactly what he says in his words and receive from his rich resources. God's response to our prayers is not dependent on your performance. He freely gives to us by his grace as we trust his Word.

Pastor Stephen LeBlanc, in his message, "Why God Makes Promises" explains that, "if you don't understand that God is a promise-making and promise-keeping God, you will be robbed of knowing his goodness." He explain in the video below that God's promises are to show us where he wants us to go.




Focus Question: What promise from God's Word are you standing on today and what direction is it giving you?

Prayer: "Our Father, we thank you for the promises of your provision. By faith we stand on your promises, receive new directions, and freely receive what you give by your grace. Amen"
