“Promises, Promises!” (1)

“Promises, Promises!” (1)

“When you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.”        Heb 10:36 NIV

Many of us remember singing in church, “Every promise in the Book is mine!” Exciting words—but are they entirely true? If you’ve prayed for the fulfillment of a Bible promise that didn’t materialize, you may have wondered, felt disillusioned, or even stopped trusting. What’s true is that every promise in the Book intended for you, is yours! God is committed to keeping every promise He has made (See Mt 24:35). So how can you know which Bible promises are yours? Here are some scriptural guidelines to help you: (1) Be sure you understand the promise. God is committed to His Word, not to your interpretation of it. When Jesus said, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up” (Jn 2:19 NKJV), His audience completely misunderstood Him, thinking He meant the literal temple when He meant His body. (2) Walk in the Spirit, not the flesh. Walking in the Spirit, Peter received divine understanding of Christ’s deity. When Jesus asked, “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “This was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father” (See Mt 16:13-18). Soon afterwards, walking in the flesh, the same man totally misunderstood Jesus and was severely rebuked by Jesus (See vv. 21-23). Why? Because “The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God…nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1Co 2:14 NKJV). So submit your thoughts to God; pray for His guidance, and in due time you’ll get the insight you need.
