God, are Your promises made for Me?
Dear Lord, are these promises made thousands of years ago, for me personally, in Christ?
“For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall Call.” Acts 2:39
Christ through the Prophet Isaiah stated: “I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.” Isaiah 43:1
Matthew wants us to understand “For every one that asks receives,” Matthew 7:8
Then our prayer should be:
I thank you, Lord, that you have given us the assurance that you have commanded your word to a thousand generations Psalm 105:8
And I thank you that you have said, “IF ye be Christ’s, then are you Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:29.
Also, I thank you, Lord, that you have said, “Blessed by the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1:3.
And finally Lord, Let my prayer be set before you an incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice Psalm 141:2.
NOTE: Over the next few Tuesdays we will continue the ABC’s of prayer. We will look at several aspects of our Christian experience that help our prayers be answered or can even prevent them from being answered. Our prayers should come from an unselfish heart and be sprinkled with faith. God has also asked us to be persistent in our prayers. All these play a factor in our Spiritual condition and in our prayers being answered. God truly wants to answer our prayers, and he wants us to ask Him in His Son’s Holy and Precious name. So please continue to join us each Tuesday Morning for the ABC of Prayer.
