The promises of God in the Bible give us hope to live each day with great expectation. Is that how you are living? I’d be willing to say that 99% of Christians, including myself, have failed to do this consistently. I think we tend to only focus on His promises when some challenge happens to come along.
We cannot afford to ignore His promises because without them we are left to create our own alternatives. The promises of God in scripture are there for us to depend upon and live by. And we can depend on them fully because the Bible tells us that God is not a liar. It also tells us countless times to put our complete trust in Him and in His promises.
The following passage in Hebrews 11:6 should get yout attention:”… for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Did you get that? Our Heavenly Father wants to reward us and that’s a promise!
If that concept is a bit of a stretch for you, let me ask you this. Do you get excited about opportunities to reward your own children?
I believe that the church is in such a weakened state because we have failed to put our faith in the Biblical promises of God. You see, our level of faith determines whether we experience the blessings of His promises or not.
Another key from this passage is our need to diligently seek Him. God gave us a built-in way to do this starting about 3500 years ago. He simply invited us to join Him by celebrating His feasts and getting in line with his timing.
These aren’t rules and regulations to follow but they are His way of getting us positioned to receive the fullness of His abundant blessings. Through this, we can enter our own promised land, which is the destiny He has for each of us.
Since God is the One who created time, I think it is understandable that He would have His own calendar with His own special times of feasting. As we celebrate these times to honor Him, His promises of blessing found throughout the Bible are unlocked for our benefit and for His glory.
If you choose to ignore His special events, I believe you are also choosing to ignore the promises of God in the Bible.
We invite you and your family to learn more about His Biblical feasts and watch the doors of God’s blessings open up for you to enjoy.
