Jesus Christ … isn’t one to say ‘yes’ when he means ‘no’.
He always does exactly what he says.He carries out and fulfils all of God’s promises,
no matter how many of them there are.(2 Cor. 1:19, 20).
How often we cry out to God in times of crisis, small or great, and wish we could hear
His voice answering us, assuring us of his help and presence!
The Bible is full of such cries for help from men and women just like us.Praise God
that his Word is also filled with His answers!He gives us sure promises which fit
every situation in our lives.In this book of daily readings, individual prayers are
coupled with appropriate promises from God in such a way that as we read them, we
can apply them to our own circumstances, claiming them, “standing on” them,
hearing God’s voice to us in them.
Along with these Prayers and Promises from The Living Bible we have included
excerpts from Corrie ten Boom’s writings which demonstrate God’s supernatural
answers to human needs and show how Miss ten Boom was able to apply His
promises in her own life and ministry.She explains:“The Bible is a cheque book.
When you said “yes” to Jesus Christ, many promises were deposited to your credit at
that very moment, and they were signed by the Lord Jesus Himself.But now you
have to cash your cheques in order to profit by them.When you come upon such a
promise and say, “Thank you, Lord, I accept this,” then you have cashed a cheque,
and that very day you’ll be richer than you were the day before,”We encourage you
to begin today to enrich your life with God’s words of promise!
