GOD'S PROMISES


There are literally thousands of promises in the Word of God waiting to be received by faith.  There are so many promises to choose from to help us in whatever situation we find ourselves in.  God’s Word can set us free from sin, sinful desires and thoughts, and bad behavior.   His Word can release us from anything that holds us captive.  God’s Word invites His heart and power into our situation.  God’s blessings can assist us to accept His forgiveness and for us to forgive others, to accept His salvation through His grace and mercy, and for us to receive our healing.   His promises can minister to us to reach our potential and do the works of the Lord.  They can aid us to become prosperous so that we can achieve what God has called us to do to bless His Kingdom.  If God chooses to financially bless us, then it is our godly responsibility not to spend that money on excessive pleasures for ourselves.  We are obligated to use those additional finances to bless the needs of the poor, the homeless, and to further the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Remember, it’s not about us, it’s all about our Lord, Jesus Christ.

God has promised to direct our path throughout our life if we will, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.  Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.” (Proverb 3:5-7)

I have listed a few of God’s promises below.  I have also personalized them so that you can pray/mediate on the original verse and then declare and decree the personalized version.  I pray that you will find rest in God’s promises and blessings and that you will seek Him to supply your every need.  May God richly bless you in every area of your life. 

Blessings to God:

What I like to do is bless the Lord first.  I sing the scripture to Him or speak it out loud as a prayer.  You can bless the Lord whichever way is best for you.

Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, my Father, forever and ever. Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power and the glory, the victory and the majesty; for all that is in heaven and earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; in Your hand is the power to make great and to give strength to all. Now therefore my God, I thank You and praise Your glorious name. (1 Chronicles 29:10-13, NKJV)

Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His, and He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him. (Daniel 2:20-22, NKJV)

Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, my Father, forever and ever.
