Encouraging Words His good promise

  1. 1. His Good Promise
  2. 2. 1 Kings 8:56 Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.
  3. 3. The power of his promise What doorways of hope open with the power of a promise and when it is God himself who makes good promises what an astounding view opens up before us.
  4. 4. We often make promises when faced with impending situations BUT God himself promised simply because he is the ultimate promise maker. He simply loves to make promises because he knows that he absolutely is able to perform and to keep any promise that he should make.
  5. 5. When we make a promise we know that we have the intention of performing it but that we are subject to circumstances beyond us. For instance I could promised to meet my wife downtown later today but the Lord Jesus could intervene and simply call me home.
  6. 6. So my promises are limited but our heavenly father, when he makes a promise, is not bound by limitation. All that he asks is that we believe that he will perform his promise.
  7. 7. I think that this verse out of the book of Kings ought to be engrafted into our hearts and minds because it is God who promises.
  8. 8. God uses his servants to communicate his promises. He doesn’t need to make promises in star signs but he makes his promises the his word.
  9. 9. It is our joy and responsibility to discover the promises that God is freely made to us so that we may believe them and rely upon them.
  10. 10. God wants us to rest on his promises confident that he will perform what he has promised. After all the promises of God are yea and amen in him
  11. 11. 2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
  12. 12. Don’t let the promises of God stagger you but rather give glory to God and be strong in the faith an assurance that God does not make empty promises but all of his promises are performed by him.
  13. 13. Romans 4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
  14. 14. As you speak in tongues, pray and read the word of God you will become fully persuaded that he will perform what he has promised
  15. 15. Romans 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
  16. 16. YEA & AMEN 2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
  17. 17. If you want to live in righteousness and true Holiness you will need to believe and rest on the promises of God. We can be righteous and no other way.
  18. 18. 2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
  19. 19. Do not underestimate the blessing that comes with receiving the promise of the spirit through faith. Remember that Paul says that it is through faith and not good works that we receive the promise.
  20. 20. Galatians 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
  21. 21. We receive the kingdom that is made without hands through the promises of God and by trusting in them
  22. 22. Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
  23. 23. Do not be slothful Hebrews 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
  24. 24. Endure to receive James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
  25. 25. Great & precious promises are given us 2 Peter 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.
  26. 26. The Promise Is Eternal Life 1 John 2:25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
  27. 27. God’s promises Are freely given
  28. 28. God’s promises Do not fail
