As you strive to please God in 2010…
- What is one promise you need to claim?
Even though Samuel had anointed young David as the future King of Israel, for years it looked like it would never come to pass.
When David found himself again on the run from King Saul, he tried to find safety among the Philistines. Deciding his best play was to act crazy, he found himself awkwardly caught between a rock and a hard place.
That’s when David implied that there were many things he didn’t know. But there is one thing he did know for sure. Psalm 56:9-10 in TLB says, “This one thing I know: God is for me! I am trusting God-oh, praise his promises! I am not afraid of anything mere man can do to me! Yes, praise his promises.”
Although David didn’t know much, he knew that God was with him.
Scripture is full of God’s promises. Here are a few.
- To meet every need you have from his riches. (Phil 4:19)
- You won’t be tempted beyond what you can handle. (1 Cor 10:13)
- To forgive all your sins. (Eph. 1:7; 1 Jn. 1:9)
- To make everything work for your good. (Rom 8:28)
- He’d never leave you or forsake you. (Heb 13:5)
- To be your ever present help in trouble. (Ps. 46:1)
- To give strength to the weary and power to the weak. (Isa 40:29)
- To guide you and give you direction. (Ps. 32:8)
- To give you a peace that goes beyond your understanding. (Phil 4:7)
- To give you power to defeat Satan (James 4:7)
- Nothing would separate you from God’s love. (Rom. 8:39)
- You are more than conquerors. (Rom. 8:37)
- Eternal life through Christ (John 10:27-28)
