Where do You Get a Promise?

Where or how do you get the promise of God? All I know is that one day I suddenly came to the realization that, over time, God has given me certain promises. Knowing the desires of my heart in prayer and meditation on His Word, God has MountainPrayinggiven promises at those times also. But most often it has been like little discoveries, one here and one there. It’s something like, “I have God’s assurance on ‘that.’ It’s already done!”  Some promises include the fact that He will work in and through me to bring about the promise. Others, He has worked in persons and situations in such a way that all I could do was just stand back and be amazed (cf.Rom.4:20-21). There is an overall promise and purpose and as I have walked in it I have received other promises, some of which have already been realized.  “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.” (Rom.4:20-21, NKJV)  (From Marty Gabler’s book “Sheep Have Short Legs”.)


What God has Started

What God has started cannot be stopped. “Of the INCREASE of [his] government and peace THERE SHALL BE NO END, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts WILL PERFORM this.” (Isa.9:7; also 2Chron.6:4; Isa.46:10; Rom.4:21) He has started a work in believers and that impacts their environment. Our cities, our communities, our nation must be recaptured. We cannot be held captive by criminals, whether they are in the streets and alleys or whether they are in political office. Our prayers must change to become prayers of decrees and commands. The church finds itself in a new era and must co-labor with the purposes of our Lord by speaking and acting in the power He has given us over all the power of the enemy. (Lk.10:19)
