"Blessed be the Lord, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant."
(1 Kings 8:56 KJV)
The above Holy Scripture is taken from a prayer that King Solomon was praying before the congregation of Israel. It is an example of what we can do when we pray and are not sure that our prayer is in line with what Our Awesome God would want or we are having a problem getting a clear answer from Him. Look up God's Promises in the Bible and see if there is one that applies to what you are praying for? When you find one, point it out to God in prayer and pray earnestly as King Solomon did.
Every promise of Holy Scripture is a letter from God which we can plead with God saying, "Do as you promised." If it is not the right time or something is wrong, God will show you as you continue to pray. Our Awesome God will not renege on His promise because He cannot do wrong but our God also will never renege because He loves us and wants what is best for you and others. Remember it is always better to ask God for a few specific requests than to ask for ten vague requests. God often ends up showing something else about His promise that you did not realize or a problem you need to overcome.
Often Our Awesome God uses His Promises as a way of showing you a weakness or problem in your life, so that, if there is an area you are having trouble verbalizing or teaching about, be sure to look up His Promises that seem to apply. When you feel comfortable teaching in this area, then stop, get a clean paper and try writing it smoothly. It usually works! Each of us who are Christians has a Spirit filled life in him that needs to be fed and watered with God's Promises.
Our Awesome God uses our praying and His Holy Word to get in intimate contact and communication with us to change our minds and let us know how He thinks about something (Romans 12:2 KJV). When we begin to use this method, we realize He has it all in His Hands, all in His purpose, and we can relax knowing that this gives us a chance to live that Spirit free life allowing God to show us His Glory!
God's Promises will enrich your life and give you a greater feeling of His wonderful love. LWBC is a Bible believing church that tries to live Jesus Christ's commandment to "love one another as I have loved you."
