Claiming God's Promises

God has given us many awesome promises, all predicated on obedience. Who better to make and keep promises than the Creator and Sustainer of all things? The Lord's promises are not like man's, based on feelings of the moment or human commitment or reasoning, which often are flawed. His commitments are unbreakable because they are made by One who is not redirected by events, who does not change His mind (1 Samuel 15:29). There is no bedrock so solid as God's mind, revealed in His word.

When encountering those who look with disdain upon you for claiming God's promise so resolutely try to remember their perspective is often based on fear--fear of the unknown, rooted in hearts where the presence and comfort of the Holy Spirit are stifled or even absent. That is an experience all of us can empathize with. In the world's eyes, confidence in God's sovereignty looks a lot like arrogance or delusion because they do not experience any of the assurance given believers through faith in Jesus Christ. The only confidence they know is a fabricated shield, man-made protection against the reality of evil in this world, which will crumble in the end. They may also see only a partial picture of what you are proclaiming, without the foundation of knowing God.

So continue to claim God's promises around your non-believing friends, for this is a powerful part of your witness. But do not expect a positive response. And never neglect to mention how your obedience fits in, nor your saving faith in Christ which makes all His loving gifts available to you. Make sure they see in your eyes, words, and attitude that all glory for those promises belongs to God alone!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
