7,000 Promises


"Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature...." (2 Pet.1:4).

For those of you who are impressed by numbers or are maybe just awed by them, its been suggested that within the covers of the Bible there are in excess of 7,000 promises. To take the impressiveness of that number a step farther, one of the beauties of God's promises lies in our ability to read them and see how they were fulfilled... We live in a world where promises are often either ignored or only partially kept. The sheer comfort and encouragement we receive from how so many God's promises are kept is amazing. The real kicker is in the knowledge that He will, in time, or in eternity, fulfill every promise He has made. Today's verse from 2 Peter says that in those promises and their fulfillment, we may participate in the divine nature.... His divine nature! I've got one more magnificent thought for all of us today. "For the Lord God is a sun and a shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold for those whose walk is blameless. O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you" (Psa 84:11-12). One of the great promises from God is this... God will bless those who put their complete trust in Him. They will become greater servants... Greater people of prayer.... Greater comforters... Greater encouragers... All of these things are neatly wrapped within the trust we have in His promises.

Have a great day... T G I F Today God Is First.... Love mark Phil.4:11
