Positive Promises of God

Introduction:

Have you ever needed any positive promises from God? Well, I know that we all do most of the time. Not just any positive promises, but ones that will motivate us to be all that we can be for Christ. Promises, that will cause us all to be proactive, to move us to disciplined action.

Let me remind you of some that will enlighten us all and cause us to be blessed to move forward.

 

Outline:

  1. We are a blessed and favored people.

Ephesians 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.

Psalm 5:12

12 For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield.

 

  1. We are an informed people.

Jeremiah 33:3

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.

 

  1. We are a directed people.

Psalm 37:23-24

23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way;

24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord upholds his hand.

 

  1. We are a repenting people.

Romans 2:4

Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?

 

Conclusion:

  1. Let us all be who God says we are everyday.
  2. Let us all change our mind about our sin and self because of God’s nature.
