Saturday Review

Saturday is review day on The Daily Promise. Every Saturday, we review the promises we learned during the week so we can allow them to go deep into our hearts.

Monday

We began the week seeing how Jesus is on our side. Jesus stands as our advocate before God, the Father. An Advocate is someone who pleads another’s case. Jesus stands before the Father and offers His sacrifice for our sin.

Here’s the promise.

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. – 1 John 2:1

Make these confessions.
  • God has called me to live a holy life.
  • If I sin, I have Jesus to stand before God on my behalf.
  • My sin has been forgiven and removed by the blood of Jesus.
  • Jesus is my advocate before the Father.

In Jesus name,
Amen

Jesus stands between you and God. Instead of God seeing your sin, He sees the righteousness of Jesus in you.

 

Tuesday

On Tuesday, we talked about the spiritual fruit God is growing in our lives. Spiritual fruit grows in our lives as we walk in dependence and fellowship with God.

Here’s the promise.

“My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.” – John 15:8

Make these confessions after me.
  • God desires for me to bear spiritual fruit.
  • As I abide in Christ, spiritual fruit grows in my life.
  • Spiritual fruit is the natural result of my abiding in Christ.
  • As I am fruitful, I bring glory to God.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

God is working in your life to produce spiritual fruit. All you have to do is allow Him to work in you.

 

Wednesday

Midway through the week, we claimed the promise that our prayers are powerful. When we stand before God to pray, we know He hears and answers our prayers.

Here’s the promise.

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. – James 5:16

Make these confessions.
  • When I pray, I bring God into my circumstances.
  • My prayers are powerful because God is directing them.
  • My prayers are effective because I have Christ’s righteousness.
  • When I pray, I release spiritual forces to bring about God’s will.

In Jesus name,
Amen

Remember, when you pray, your prayers will accomplish much because of your righteousness in Christ.

 

Thursday

On Thursday, we took it a step further and celebrated the fact that God delights in our prayers.

Here’s the promise.

The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable to the Lord, but the prayer of the upright is His delight. – Proverbs 15:8

Make these confessions.
  • God is delighted when I pray.
  • He takes great joy in my prayer.
  • I will not come to Him in fear or shame.
  • He invites me to sit in His lap and share my heart.

In Jesus name,
Amen

God delights in hearing you pray. He wants you to come before Him and bring your needs, prayers, and concerns. 

 

Friday

We concluded the week, seeing that when we ask for forgiveness, God forgives and forgets our sin. The record of our sin is removed, and God no longer sees it.

Here’s the promise.

And their sins and their lawless deeds, I will remember no more. – Hebrews 10:77

Make these confessions after me.
  • When I sin, I confess my sin, and God forgives and forgets my sin.
  • I will not allow guilt from my past sin to hold me back.
  • I will not allow Satan to put shame, guilt, or condemnation on me.
  • Jesus has forgiven and forgotten my sin.

In Jesus name,
Amen

That’s it for the week. I pray these promises have been a blessing and encouragement to you. 

Share the Daily Promise with someone you know. With so much bad news today, everyone could use a positive promise from God’s Word.
