Obtaining the promises

It is time to soar! You are a special individual and God has given you “exceeding great and precious promises.” (2nd Peter 1:4). We are told that the reason we are given these is so we can partake of the divine nature and escape the corruption that is in the world through its evil desires. The word “corruption” in the original Greek, has to do with moral decay. There is nothing that will bring you down with despair and heartache like moral decay. As we see our world sink deeper and deeper into this destruction of  Christian values, we also see a spike in mental illness and depression. Our psychiatrists are having a hard time connecting these dots, however. They are using the same Freudian principles to try to cure people that got us to this state in the first place.

God has granted us promises that will bring joy to our lives and success to our efforts. As it says it Psalm 19:7-11 (KJV)

7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

I want to listen to the One who designed us because He understands what makes us happy. Over the next few days, I want to talk about God’s promises and how to obtain them. Our lives will be infinitely more fulfilled as we walk in these promises. If you have a favorite promise from God, feel free to comment and share that with us. So let’s take this journey back to hope and peace. Let’s soar to the heights that we were meant to attain!
