Topic: God’s Promises-by Bro Ewean
Memory Verse: 2 Pet.1:4.
“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
Calvary greetings to you all and I wish above all things that the peace of our Lord be with you. It is nice to know that our Lord has given unto us great and precious promises according to our memory verse. It is worthwhile for us to obey His ordinances else, we will not be partakers of His divine nature.
In order for God’s promises to come to pass in our lives, we have a role to play. Hence, in Genesis 12:1, God told Abraham in whom we are positively connected through faith to leave his country and his kindred to a land that He will show him. If Abraham had not obeyed/acted, those promises would not have come to pass in his life.
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing” (Gen. 12:1-2).
What amazes me in God’s promises is that He (God) does not forget His promises to us. Even after the death of Abraham, God assured Isaac of His promises to Abraham his father (Gen. 26:2-3).
Brethren, I want us to remember that we are descendants of Abraham and as a result, God’s promises are still active in our lives if only we keep His commandments (John 14:15); live a life of holiness (1 Peter 1:15); meditate in His word day and night (Joshua 1:8); and more importantly, forgive one another (Mark 11:25).
In conclusion, I want to enjoin us to be steadfast in waiting on God’s promises. The difficult times we are passing through may be the test we have to pass in order to receive God’s promises in our lives.
Oh Lord, we receive the grace to trust in your word always in Jesus mighty name.
