Saturday is review day on The Daily Promise.

Every Saturday, we review the promises of the week so we can allow them to go deep into our hearts and lives.

We started off the week, seeing how we are made in the image of God.

Here’s the promise.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27

Confess this with me.

  • I am created by God.
  • I was made in His image.
  • I may be marred by sin, but God’s image is in me.
  • I am a reflection of the great, creative God.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

You are not an accident. God created you in His image with a purpose in mind. You bring glory to God when you live as the person God created you to be.

On Tuesday, we were reminded that God had given us the Holy Spirit without measure.

Here’s the promise.

For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. – John 3:34 (ESV)

Confess this with me.

  • Jesus promised the Holy Spirit would indwell me.
  • I have the Holy Spirit without measure.
  • The Holy Spirit is filling and empowering me.
  • He is guiding and directing me today.
  • His presence is overflowing to the world around me.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

The only way you can live the Christian life is through the power of the Holy Spirit within you. He gives you the Holy Spirit without limit or measure.

Midway through the week, we celebrated the fact that Christ has given us everything we need to live the Christian life.

Here’s the promise.

Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. – 2 Peter 1:3

Make this confession.

  • God is giving me everything I need for daily living.
  • I will not worry about tomorrow because God is my provision.
  • His divine power is working in me today.
  • I have everything I need to live the Christian life.

In Jesus name,
Amen

When you placed your faith in Christ, He gave you everything you need to live the Christian life in obedience and holiness.

Thursday was all about the joy we have in Jesus.

Here’s the promise.

“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.” – John 17:13

Make this confession.

  • Jesus is prayed that I will receive His full measure of joy.
  • I have the joyful fruit of the Spirit growing in me.
  • No matter my situation, I have confidence God is working for my good.
  • Today, I receive all the joy Jesus prayed for me to receive.

In Jesus name,
Amen

Jesus was the most joy-filled person who ever walked on the earth. He freely gives that joy to those who put their faith in Him.

On Friday, we talked about the commitment love God has for us.

The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. – Psalm 103:8

Make this confession.

  • My God is a compassionate God.
  • My God is a gracious God.
  • My God is slow to anger and has patience with my failures.
  • My God has a commitment love for me.
  • I am loved by God.

In Jesus name,
Amen

The God you serve is overflowing with love toward you. He is compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, and is abounding in love for you.

That’s it for this week.

I hope these five promises have been a blessing to you. Tomorrow is the Lord’s day, so I hope you will be in church, worshiping the Lord and hearing His Word. While you are at church tomorrow, share one of the promises we learned this week. Everyone can use an encouraging promise from God’s Word.

Be careful out there; things have gotten a little crazy. Remember, God is still on the throne.

Share with us which of these promises were the most meaningful to you, or what you learned from them this week?
