5 PROMISES THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE


The Bible is full of promises (over 7,000). It is God’s operating system. He commands us to do something, promising a great reward when we obey. If you think clearly about this and know something about the nature of God, you will understand that this is all for our good. God is not trying to rule over us to merely show His power … He’s seeking to help those He’s created find the best path for their lives. Notice 5 commands in the opening verses of Proverbs 3 and their glorious promises.

1. OBEDIENCE

If you remember and obey Me from the heart, I will give you life and peace.

My son, do not forget my teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments; For length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. (Proverbs 3:1-2)

2. BALANCE

If you balance your life with kindness and truth, you will find favor with God and man.

Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3:3-4)

3. TRUST

If you trust me with all your heart in all your ways, I will lead you.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

4. HUMILITY

If you stay humble and fear Me and turn from evil, I will heal and refresh your body.

Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones. (Proverbs 3:7-8)

5. GENEROSITY

If you honor me materially by always giving Me the first fruits, I will provide all your needs.

Honor the Lord from your wealth and from the first of all your produce; So your barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will overflow with new wine. (Proverbs 3:9-10)

Every man or woman must decide if they believe God. Will He do what He promised? Even without the promises, the path that God outlines here for us is the best path. But God motivates us and blesses us with the promised results if we will simply listen and follow.

Father, thank You for the incredible simplicity of Your commands and Your promises. Thank You that You are not trying to harm me when You give me direction, but to help me step into the best life. Give me grace to understand and simply obey You … and then, be grateful for Your faithfulness.

“God is easy to live with,” Tozer also said. He is not only perfect in holiness (He must deal with sin as it comes) but also flawless in kindness. If He were a man you related to, you would find Him always doing the right, gracious, benevolent thing. You would be stunned by His interest in you; awed by His acts of kindness. Overwhelmed by His unceasing generosity.

Has the kingdom of God come near you? You’ve heard of Christ, seen someone in whom Christ dwelled, passed by a church on the corner, or have a Bible that a grandmother gave you years ago. Perhaps you even sit in a church every Sunday, but you have never surrendered to Christ and entered His kingdom. You never acknowledged your need and turned to Christ in faith to save you. You merely let the kingdom merely “come near.”
