Promises

TODAY’S VERSE
“Through his glory and integrity he has given us His promises that are of the highest value. Through these promises you will share in the divine nature because you have escaped the corruption that sinful desires cause in the world.
II Peter 1:4-4 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Peter reminds us that God has given us great and precious promises. Promises are those great weapons that we have to counter negative thinging and painful emotions. How many times we feel out of sorts, emotionally troubled when all the while God’s promises are greater than our fears and circumstances. Promises like He will never leave you, or He has fully forgiven you and has prepared a place for you in glory. God promises that nothing can seperate us from His love and that there is no condemnation now that we are in Him. He has promised that the Holy Spirit is in us to comfort, guide and direct our life. He has promised that He has given us everything we need in order to live a Godly life. Peter knew this so he encourages us to, “make every effort to respond to God’s promises.” That’s the important key to promises. If we are going to enjoy the peace and joy that comes with the promises, we need to appropiate them. We need to respond to what He promises and act on it. When we do, we will share in His divine nature and escape the negative thinking that comes with our natural human disposition. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, I give this day to You and put my faith in You and Your love for me.  Help me focus on all the great and precious promises You have given me. Help me to trust You and to not to lean on my own understanding.
AMEN

TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
I stand on God’s promises
Come to God and quiet your heart before Him. Picture God in all His power promising to love, protect you and care for you. Sense His amazing love and let your mind be at peace. Take a deep breath and as you exhale say, “Father, I trust in Your promises.”

Promises

TODAY’S VERSE
“Stay here for now, and may the LORD help you keep your promise.”
I Samuel 1:23 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We live in a world that doesn’t honor its word. This is especially true of a promise that was made with the wrong motives; a promise that is more like “let’s make a deal” than it is a serious commitment. We either want something and will manipulate with a promise in order to get it; or we try to avoid certain consequences and use promises as currency to buy our way out of trouble. But this is not the way Jesus taught us. He said to make our “Yes” a “Yes” and our “No” a “No”. It is also easy to fail at keeping our promises when we have the best of intentions. There are so many distractions, so many important things vying for our attention that we can begin to serve the “urgent” at the expense of the promises we made. Integrity is key to the Christian life and we need to repent when we stray from keeping our word. Today, let us repent of our unkept promises and recommit ourself to follow through on what we say we will do.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me keep my word. Help my “Yes” be a “Yes” and my “No” a “No”. Might I serve You by keeping my promises.
AMEN
