When we put faith in what God says it becomes real for us personally. All God’s promises belong to christians, they work for us when we put faith in them. Without that faith we can not receive them, because
“without faith it is impossible to receive anything from God. ” Heb 11:16
It is like going to a store where everything is free.
“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” 2 Corinthians 1:20 2 Corinthians 1:20 ”
There is a wealth of provision locked up for us in God’s promises and faith in them lets us receive them.
What we unlock is ours, we allow or disallow God’s provision by our faith. God has unlocked them all on his side, but needs our “amen” for them to become real for us.
“I will give you the keys to the kingdom from heaven. Whatever you prohibit on earth will have been prohibited in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will have been permitted in heaven.”
As I have gotten older these promises have become a comfortable place to rest my head.
With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.” Psalm 91:16 King James Version (KJV)
“Your bars are iron and bronze, and as your days, so is your strength.” Deuteronomy 33:25
