Claim His Promises ……….   2 comments

******

“His divine power has given to us all things….
by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises,
that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
2 Peter 1 :3-4

We can escape the corruption that is around us in only one way-
and that is by becoming partakers of a  new nature.
It is by acting upon His promises  
that we experience a new nature.
We become sons and daughters of God (John 1:12).
If we are in union with Christ – we are new creatures with a new nature.
(2 Corinthians  5:17)

In a book called- Lambs among wolves (Meade MacGuire) –
tells an imaginary story of a little wolf that tried to be a lamb
by associating with a flock of sheep and imitating them.
So – could a wolf change into a sheep!!  Of course not!
Can a leopard change his spots- by diligent effort?
Can we alter our nature into the divine nature – by our own efforts?  No.

“God can give us this nature if we believe His promises – They never fail.
The proof of depending on God’s PROMISES is the fact that He will perform.”
(Desire of Ages. p 98).

Paul writes in Titus 1:2 –  “Hope of eternal life — promised before time began”

Whatever our struggle -or  battles in life-  God has a promise for you – Claim it today.

Pray a prayer of faith – claim a promise today to meet some need in your life.

HAPPY SABBATH =

Thanks be to God
