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 – What I Have Promised, I Will Do

We began the week seeing how faith is believing that God will do what He said He would do. Just as Abraham held to the promise God gave Him, we can stand in faith, knowing that when God makes a promise, He always keeps it.

Here’s the promise.

Yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform. Therefore it was also credited to him as righteousness. – Romans 4:20-22

Make these confessions.

  • What God has promised He will do.
  • I will hold onto God’s promise until I see it fulfilled.
  • I will trust in God’s timetable, not my own.
  • I know God is willing and able to do what He promised.

In Jesus name,
Amen

God is faithful to fulfill every promise He makes. It’s not always on our timetable, but it is always for our good.

Tuesday – I Will Live on God’s New Earth

On Tuesday, we claimed the promise that we will live with Christ on a renewed earth for all eternity.

Here’s the promise.

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first Earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. – Revelation 21:1

Make these confessions.

  • One day, I will see a new heaven and Earth God has made.
  • One day, all my pain and every tear will be removed.
  • One day, I will enjoy a new, eternal body made to live on the new Earth God has created.
  • One day, I will live in the constant joy of God’s presence.

In Jesus name,
Amen  

Soon, God will reveal the new heaven and new Earth specifically created for His kingdom and those who have put their faith in Him. By the way, it’s going to be amazing!

Wednesday – God Freely Gives Me All Things

Midway through the week, we saw that since God gave us His only Son, why would He not give us everything we need? 

Here’s the promise.

He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? – Romans 8:32

Make these confessions.

  • God is on my side, working for my good.
  • He willingly gave His Son to purchase my salvation.
  • He will freely give me everything I need.
  • I can come to Him as His child, knowing He will bless me and give me all things.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen

If God willingly sent His only Son to come and die for you on the cross, why would He not willingly help you when you call on Him?

Thursday – I am Part of the Family of God

On Thursday, we celebrated the promise that those who have placed their faith in Christ are part of the eternal family of God.

Here’s the promise.

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. – 1 John 3:1

Make these confessions.

  • I am part of the Family of God.
  • By faith, I am a child of God and an heir to the Kingdom of God.
  • When I feel discouraged, I remind myself that I have family members around the world.
  • When Jesus returns, I will meet all my other family members and celebrate the eternal Kingdom of God.

In Jesus name,
Amen

As a follower of Christ, you are part of a family that spans generations and covers every corner of the world. Your Father is the king of the universe. You are a member of the family of God.

Friday – I Treasure God’s Word in My Heart

We ended the week seeing that as we put God’s Word into our life, it keeps us from sin. As we make God’s Word the priority of our lives, our hearts and lives are made more like Jesus.

Here’s the promise.

Your Word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You. – Psalm 119:11

Make these confessions.

  • As I treasure God’s Word, it renews my mind.
  • When I read and study God’s Word, it strengthens my faith.
  • God’s Word shows me when I sin and how to get right with God.
  • As I treasure God’s Word in my heart, it keeps me from sin.

In Jesus name,
Amen

As you allow God’s Word to go deep into your heart, it transforms your life, heart, and mind.

That’s it for this week’s review.

I pray these verses have been a blessing to you. Take a moment to go back over these verses and allow God to move them deep into your spirit.

I hope, whether online or in-person, you will be in church tomorrow. Share at least one of these promises with a friend or family member. Encourage them with a promise from the Bible.
