Saturate Yourself With God’s Promises

Lately, there have been many distractions hindering my intimacy with Jesus. I have been increasing my knowledge of His Word, and discovering inventive ways to share the Gospel. However, knowledge and understanding of Jesus does not result in an everlasting union with Him, in heaven. A relationship with Him does! In order for me to stay on track, I am discovering ways of saturating myself with the promises of God.

saturate Gods promises

God’s Word is so sharp. It’s unquestionable, true, straight, fire. You cannot beat around it, under it, or over it. It is clear and honest.

One thing I love about the Bible is that there are promises God has made that He must stick to. If the promises of God, in Scripture, were not so, God would be a liar. A good reminder for you is He’s not a liar. He is true, honest, loving, patient, caring, faithful, and good. He will never let you drown or sink too deep out of reach.

I want to encourage you by sharing a couple of these “promises” that have been capturing my heart in order get back on the right track to find intimacy, and overwhelming joy from the Scriptures.

“Come to me all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matt. 11:28-29)

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1)

I am guessing that most of you have heard these verses before. Although this may be the case, I want to shed some light on why God has given us these promises.

He knew we would have doubts. He is all-knowing. He knows, and understands how our brains function. He gets the fact that we cannot physically see Him! He knows. He knows. He knows. Praise Him. He has done something very cool because of our limitations and finite brains. He has given us the Bible to saturate our minds in.

How true and reliable is the Bible? John chapter one tells us. The Bible is God’s heart. It’s His morals, standards, plan, purpose, and nature. He has given us the Bible to understand and give us hope and encouragement when we have hard times.

Google, YouTube, other preachers, etc., will NOT comfort you like the Word, itself. We must soak ourselves with it. It’s all we got, folks. Remember, it’s still all by faith.

This revelation on the importance of saturating myself with the Bible is starting to melt into my brain. Partially, because my default isn’t to read a book when I have a question. Praying to Holy Spirit to lead us, and speak to us through the promises of God, in His Word, can comfort, teach, correct, rebuke, and train us in righteousness.

Glory to Jesus!


Q: What promises do you know of and love that you could share? How do you keep yourself “saturated” with these promises?

The Adelphotes Network by TheMajestysMen.com

 

“Adelphós” is greek for “brother”, and so “adelphotés ” is the greek word used in the Bible to refer to the “brotherhood of believers” and the early followers of “the way”, both male and female. We are in the very early stages of building a network of like-minded brothers who seek to make much of Jesus, together. Each site will be guaranteed to be amazing with as much (or little) as you need to produce the content you want to produce with attractive style!
