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 Am the Only Way

We began the week seeing how Jesus is the only way to God. When it comes to Christianity, everything centers around Jesus. Jesus was not just a good teacher; He was the only way to God. 

Here’s the promise.

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” – John 14:5-6

Make these confessions.

  • Jesus is the way, truth, and life.
  • Jesus is not a way to God, but the only way to God.
  • Jesus is the way to everything I need now and forever.
  • As I put my faith in Christ, I know He will be my way.

In Jesus name,
Amen

Jesus is not a way to God. He is the only way to God. Good intentions, religion, and dedication won’t cut it. As you put your faith in Him, He becomes your way.

Tuesday – I Have Grace and Hope

On Tuesday, we celebrated the grace and hope we have in Christ. God’s grace is His unmerited favor. Because of His grace, we have hope knowing our salvation is not based on our performance, but His grace working in our lives.

Here’s the promise.

Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. – Romans 5:2

Make these confessions.

  • I have God’s grace pouring over me today.
  • I have the undeserved favor of God.
  • My hope is not in this world but in the grace of God.
  • I can rejoice today because God is in charge and working for my good.

In Jesus name,
Amen

God has filled you with grace and hope. His grace has made you a child of God and gives you hope for tomorrow and all eternity. 

Wednesday – The Promise of Christmas

Midway through the week, we began looking at the wonderful promises of Christmas. The birth of Jesus was part of God’s plan from the beginning of time. Hundreds of years before Jesus was born, the prophet Isaiah predicted a baby would be born who be the messiah.

Here’s the promise.

For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on His shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6

Make these confessions.

  • The birth of Jesus was the fulfillment of God’s perfect plan.
  • Jesus brought salvation and redemption to my life.
  • God is never surprised by my actions or the problems I face.
  • He is working behind the scenes to bring about His plan in my life.

In Jesus name,
Amen 

The promise of Christmas is that God had a plan from the very beginning of time. The baby in a manger would fulfill the promise of freedom and restoration from the devastating power of sin.

Thursday – God Became Flesh

On Thursday, we were reminded that Jesus was all of God and all of man in one person. He is unique in all the universe because He is the only Son of the creator God.

Here’s the promise.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. – John 1:14

Make these confessions.

  • Jesus is the Word of God.
  • Jesus was all of God and all of man in one body.
  • I don’t have to reach up to God because He reached down to me.
  • Because Jesus walked on this earth, He knows the struggles I have.

In Jesus name,
Amen 

Because Jesus is God, you can place your faith in Him. He was not just another man with another idea. He was all of God, poured out into the flesh of man.

Friday – I Am the Lord’s Servant

We ended the week looking at Mary’s submissive response to the angel when he announced that she would have a child. 

Mary simply stated that she was a servant of the Lord and His will would be done in her life.

Here’s the promise.

And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. – Luke 1:38

Make these confessions.

  • God uses the weak and powerless to accomplish His will.
  • God uses the available over the talented.
  • God, I submit my life to you to use as You will.
  • God, I am your servant. Be it unto me according to your word.

In Jesus name,
Amen 

This week, would you be willing to say, “God, I may not understand, I may not even think it’s possible, but whatever you want in my life, that’s what I want.”

That’s it for this week’s review.

That’s it for this week. I pray these promises have been a blessing to you. Take a moment and go back through these verses. Allow God to speak to you through one of these promises.

I hope you are enjoying the Christmas season. Please take a moment and share one of these promises with a friend, or post it online. During these days, everyone can use a positive promise from God’s Word.
