Standing on the Promises of God
Declare His word..
So many people in the world read the bible. The question that I have is, are people applying the word of God to their lives? We as God's children have come to faith in Christ. We believe that Jesus is the son of God who came in the form of a man and lived a perfect life. He died on the cross for the sins of the world, and on the third day He rose from the dead by the power of God.
"that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
Believing the Word of God is something that we do as believers. We have believed and accepted the gospel in our lives. We as Followers of Christ read our bibles like we are told to do. In the Word of God there are many promises that we will come across as we read. Now do we as believers understand that we can act upon these promises in our own lives. Some may refer to it as standing on the promises of God. There are over 800 promises in the bible.
As you develop a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, and God the Father begins to reveal Himself to you as His child, you can in tern share His word with Him. Example you can be like this in you relationship and in prayer." Father in your Word its says,
" If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you." John 15:7
and according to His will as you ask it will be done for you. Now understanding that in asking your asking according to His heart and what He has revealed to you concerning what is right.
"Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass." Psalm 37:4
such as this promise,
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."Matthew 6:33
knowing that God who can not lie shall do what He has said in His word concerning you His Child.
What it is i am trying to share not everyone knows, but for those who do, praise God. May God begin to show you even greater revelations of Who He is and Things concerning your identity in the Kingdom.
" ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’Jer 33:3
There are so many promises available for pretty much every aspect of our lives, we just must continue in faith with God and apply His word concerning all these area of life.
"But those who wait on the LORD, shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31
Something amazing happens when we combine FAITH and the Word of God. There is an action that takes place when the two come together. The word is alive. Jesus is risen. As you begin your days take the time to share God's Word with him and even learn to speak it over your self. Declare it for yourself. Example I know that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Is 54:17 I can say that in a deceleration of faith believing Gods word for my life.
I desire for your faith in God to continue to grow. To increase your faith this is what the Word says,
"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" Romans 10:17
As you read it, speak it. Declare it and believe it all the more. Let your faith arise.
Can I pray for you?
Father, in the name of Jesus, according to Your Word I ask in the Name of Jesus, that You release a greater amount of Faith into the life of the one reading this right now. That you would add an increase of Your Holy Spirit to their Life right now in the name of Jesus. That God You would release the reality of Your Kingdom and the truth of Your word into their life in Jesus Name. May you release Healing and the restoration power into their life to do and move in such a way that their life would be a reflection of Your Love and Glory to this world. God may Your Love be evident in and through them in such a way that others are drawn to You in the mighty name of Jesus. Lord I ask that You rebuke every foe and that You would put the enemy underfoot so your child may grow and mature in things of God in Jesus name. AMEN
