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 – You Are Dead to Sin But Alive in Christ

We began the week, realizing that we are dead to sin and alive in Christ. When Christ died on the cross, you died with Him. The power of sin was broken in your life. When He rose from the dead, you were made alive with Him. You now live the new life Christ gave you.

Here’s the promise.

Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. – Romans 6:11

Make these confessions.

  • I am dead to my sin and my sin nature.
  • As a dead person, sin no longer has power over me.
  • I am not the old person I used to be.
  • I am alive in Christ and walk as a new person in Him.

In Jesus name,
Amen

God says you are dead to your sin and your old life. The good news is you are also alive to God in Christ.

Tuesday – Through His Blood, I Am Forgiven

On Tuesday, we built on Monday’s promise by celebrating the promise that our sin has been forgiven. The blood of Christ has paid our sin debt. 

Here’s the promise.

Look at the promise again.

And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. – Matthew 26:27-28

Make these confessions.

  • The blood of Jesus has canceled my sin debt.
  • The blood of Jesus has removed the guilt, shame, and regret of my past.
  • When Jesus died on the cross, my sin was forgiven. 
  • The blood of Jesus has removed the barrier that separated me from God.

In Jesus name,
Amen

Because Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sin, the shame and guilt of your past have been erased. His blood broke down the barrier between you and God.

Wednesday – I Have God’s Grace, Mercy, and Peace

Midway through the week, we saw how God has poured out His grace, mercy, and peace in our lives. 

Here’s the promise.

Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. – 2 John 1:3

Make these declarations with me.

  • God’s grace is with me today.
  • His grace drew me to Himself and brought about my salvation.
  • God’s mercy is flowing over me today.
  • His mercy has forgiven my sin and made me new in Him.
  • Because of God’s grace and mercy, I have peace with Him today.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

God’s mercy and grace come together to bring about God’s peace in your life. 

Thursday – God Makes a Road in the Wilderness

On Thursday, we were reminded that God makes a roadway in the desert of our days and brings rivers of living water.

Here’s the promise.

Behold, I will do something new. Now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:18

Make these confessions.

  • I will not dwell on the past but look forward to what God will do today.
  • I am keeping my eyes open to the new thing God is doing.
  • When I face uncertain times, God will show me the path to follow.
  • When the world dries up around me, God will bring rivers of refreshment and provision.

In Jesus name,
Amen

No matter how vast the wilderness or how dry the desert, God is giving you direction and refreshing you with His presence. 

Friday – Jesus Set Me Free

We ended the week, claiming the promise that Jesus has set us free. We no longer walk in bondage, but in the freedom Jesus gives us.

Here’s the promise.

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. – Galatians 5:1

Make these declarations today.

  • In Jesus Christ, I have freedom.
  • I am not under the law or any set of rules.
  • I live in an empowered, loving relationship with Christ.
  • I will not allow myself to be brought back under the bondage of religion.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

You no longer live by the rules of religion. You live in a loving relationship with Christ. You are free from the law and condemnation.

That’s it for this week’s review.

That’s it for the week. I hope these promises have been a blessing to you. Take a moment and go back through them so God can take them deep into your heart.
