Do you ever feel that God’s promises don’t apply to you? Sometimes balancing a marriage and a family can be difficult especially when you are trying to do it God’s way. There are so many promises of God that we can find in the Bible that can help us in building happy marriages and in raising up children that will glorify God. Let’s take a look at some of God’s promises today.
- God promises that he will give us a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)
- He assures us that if we wait on him that he will restore our strength. (Isaiah 40:31)
- We know that the same God who takes care of us will supply all our needs. (Philippians 4:19)
- God promises that if we listen to him that we will live in peace untroubled by fear of harm. (Proverbs 1:33)
- The testing of our faith develops perseverance, and perseverance leads to maturity and completion. (James 1:3-4)
- Our children will not depart from what is right if we train them up in the things of God. (Proverbs 22:6)
- God promises us that if we ask any thing according to his will that he will hear us and we will have it. (1 John 5:14-15)
How do we activate God’s promises in our life?
We can activate God’s promises through prayer! There is so much that God can do for us when we seek him diligently through our prayer life. Have you ever tossed to and fro throughout the night about some unpleasant life experience? It is during these times that God expects us to activate his promises through communication with him. The Parable of the Persistent Widow shows us that if we persevere in prayer that God will answer our petitions. (Luke 18:1-8) The widow continued to plead her case for the unjust judge to grant her justice against her adversary. God promises us time and time again in his word that he will bring justice for those that cry out to him.
The Holy Spirit revealed to me on yesterday that much of what we don’t have is because we don’t ask. Yesterday as I struggled to balance my responsibilities as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend I realized one important thing after my husband prayed for me.
PRAYER CHANGES THINGS!
How can I expect to have all of God’s promises if I don’t ask for them? How can I expect to be an overcomer if I don’t request God’s assistance?
Activate God’s promises today by making time to spend time dialoguing with God. The prayers of the righteous availeth much. (James 5:16)
