Claiming His Promises

Posted on Posted in Covenant, Life, Relationship

                               or living His Promises!

 
Ever wondered why God’s promises often seem so elusive?

Quite simply,
… because we have not truly understood God,
… because we have not understood God’s heart!

God does not want us to claim His promises,
but God wants to live those promises with us!

      I have come that they may have life,
      and that they may have it more abundantly.
      John 10:10

How does God plan for us to live this abundant life?

God wants us close to Him,
… in His presence,
… in His love, under His protection!

God wants a personal relationship with us,
… where He can be Daddy.
A Daddy who showers His children with love,
… who showers His children with His promises!
Why,
because we are with Him!

      The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
      He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
      He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul;
      …
      Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
      All the days of my life;
      And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
      Psalm 23:1-3,6
