It is a comfortable and happy religion to get a little book of God’s promises and read them all the time. There’s usually several hundred, and apparently we are supposed to “claim” them for ourselves.
God makes many, many promises in the Bible. But the fact that is disappointing for many people is that almost all of those promises were made to other people. To claim those promises for ourselves is a type of spiritual theft.
When it is all boiled down, God has really made only three promises to those of us who surrender our lives to Him:
1) I will be with you.
2) I will fulfill My perfect plan for your life, which includes being conformed to the likeness of My Son.
3) I will not hold your sin against you, so that when you die, you will live with Me forever.
Is that enough for you?
