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 – I Have Peace With God

We began the week claiming the promise that we have peace with God through Christ.

Here’s the promise.

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. – Romans 5:1

Make these confessions.
  • Through faith in Christ, I have peace with God.
  • My sin has been paid through the blood of Jesus.
  • Since I have peace with God, I have peace with my past.
  • The peace of Christ flows into every area of my life.

In Jesus name,
Amen

Tuesday – God’s Word Builds My Faith

On Tuesday, we saw that our faith grows as we put God’s Word into our lives. The more we know God’s Word, the more our faith grows.

Here’s the promise.

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. – Romans 10:17

Make these confessions.
  • God’s Word is the foundation of my faith.
  • My faith will grow as I read and study the Bible.
  • When I read the Bible, I ask God to speak to me.
  • I commit to spending time reading the Bible every day this week.

In Jesus name,
Amen

The Word of God awakens your faith. It teaches you what God is like, how to live the Christian life, and inspires you to be all God has called you to be.

Wednesday – God Rejoices Over Me

Midway through the week, we learned that God rejoices over us the way a groom rejoices over his new bride. 

Here’s the promise.

For as a young man marries a young woman, so shall your sons marry you, and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you. – Isaiah 62:5

Make these confessions.
  • God looks at me the way a groom looks at his new bride.
  • God’s love for me is beyond my ability to understand.
  • I will not walk in fear, shame, or regret because God loves me.
  • I can rejoice today because God rejoices over me.

In Jesus name,
Amen

You need never live in fear, shame, or insignificant. The God of the universe is overjoyed with you. You are his bride, and He is your groom. Rejoice today, because God rejoices over you.

Thursday – I Am Happy to Obey God’s Word

On Thursday, we discovered that walking in obedience to God’s Word produces a joy-filled life.

Here’s the promise.

I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches. – Psalm 119:14

Make these confessions.
  • It is my joy to be an obedient child of God.
  • I am blessed as I obey the commandments of the Lord.
  • When I walk in obedience, God protects me from harm.
  • When I obey God’s Word, I honor God and show my love for Him.

In Jesus name,
Amen

The Psalmist said we could rejoice over obeying God because is produces a blessed life, keeps us from harm, it pleases our Heavenly Father, and shows our love for Christ.

Friday – I Am Alive in Christ

We ended the week seeing how we are alive in Christ. Because of God’s mercy, even though we were dead in our sin, God made us alive with Christ.

Here’s the promise.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved. – Ephesians 2:4-5

Make these confessions.
  • God has made me alive with Jesus Christ.
  • The power of sin has been broken.
  • One day I will be raised to a new life for all eternity.
  • I will have a new body design for living in the kingdom of God.

In Jesus name,
Amen

 

God raise you up with Christ and has made you alive. He gives you the hope that one day, you will be raised with Him for all eternity.

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.
