Devotional–The Struggle of Sanctification–The Promises of a Loving God
By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. (2 Peter 1:3-4 NLT)
With a loving heart, God makes many promises to His righteous ones who are precious in His sight. To receive the gift of His Son, Jesus dying for us is a testimony reflecting a love that we can never understand. Through the blood of Jesus Christ, we receive the assurance of God’s love, forgiveness, and the power to live holy.
Even when facing the toughest trials and sorrows, we can have faith and confidence that Divine Help is always available from our Spiritual Team. Jesus is tenderly watching over us. He continues to manifest His love for humanity by serving as our Heavenly Intercessor. And the Holy Spirit has the supernatural power to comfort, teach, and guide all believers without limits.
King David tells us, “For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go” (Psalms 91:11). God’s promises include protection from physical harm and spiritual warfare.
In humility, we can boldly and reverently approach God in prayer. Although God is aware of our needs and circumstances, Jesus tells us we must ask [for anything in His name] by earnestly petitioning the throne of grace in prayer.
God always answers our prayers. Our part is to, “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:14)
We stay connected to Jesus through our faith, which allows us to receive God’s Divine Intervention 24/7 from our Teacher and Comforter, the Holy Spirit.
In this three-part Devotional Reading, we will explore many of God’s promises. Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
Prayer: God, we thank You for Your never-ending love, grace, and mercies. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
