The Bible has 7487 promises for the Believer. Note the word used, Believer, and not a just amere Christian. These promises are only available to the person who believes he or she is trulythe child of God.Where can the promises be found? Well it is quite easy, it can be found in the Bible. It is stated in almost every part of Biblicalscriptures. Here are some of the words that will let you recognise them as promises. The first andmost famous is the word BLESSED. Every time we read the Bible and find Blessed, it is a signthat God is promising something to usHow do we claim these promises? First of all, it takes the act of obedience. God is a jealous God and He is a God who recognisesObedience and cherishes it so much. He states in the scriptures, TO OBEY IS BETTER THANTO SACRIFICE. The act of obedience does not mean we will never sin. We were born in sin andthe world is full of sinful things. But an obedient person is one who recognises that he or she canrepent and ask for forgiveness from God.An example is David. He sinned a lot but in his heart he was able to ask for God's forgivenessSecondly, use the scriptures. God wants us to quote His scriptures back to Him and to believe inHim all the time. Everything is possible to him who believes. Christians should learn to meditateon Gods word daily and be doers of it and not hearers only. That opens the back door of heavenfor the promises to be released.Thirdly, pray. Prayer is the only way a Christian talks to God.A believer who does not pray is alosing the spiritual battle. Jesus who was Himself God prayed a lot and He taught His discipleshow to pray. The Bible says come boldly into the throne of Grace so that you will obtain mercyin times of need. The only way to do that is by prayer. Learn to prayHere is a short version of the statement made by Zig Zigglar which is an example of how toclaim your promises"As a child of the King I claim the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace,patience,kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control; here there is no conflictwith the law. Since I live by faith and follow the Holy Spirit, I will let Him lead me in every partof my life. I will not become conceited or irritate my brothers and sisters in Christ, nor will I be jealous of any of them. I always put on the full armor of God so that I can stand firm against allstrategies and tricks of the devil, and I use every piece of God's armor to resist the enemy in thetime of evil, so that after the battle I will still be standing firm. I will stay alert and be persistentin my prayer for all Christians everywhere, and I will also follow The Golden Rule in my dailylife".CLICK HERE TO READ THE BOOKWHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE?
