Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
I was reading Rick Warren’s Daily Devotional about God’s Promises from YouVersion, and he asked a question I figured I would share?
What does God promise us if we say, “I want you to use me.” He promises you three things that can all found in Joshua 1.
- God promises strength — “No one will be able to stand against you.” (Joshua 1:5) In other words, what God asks you to do, he’ll give you the power to do.
- God promises success — “You will be successful.” (Joshua 1:6) God wants you to succeed in serving Him. He doesn’t want you to be a failure.
- God promises support — “I will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 NIV) God’s word, done God’s way, will not lack God’s support.
God has many, many promises for you in the Bible but you’ve got to discover them. Joshua 1:8 says, “Always remember what is written in this book. Study it day and night to be sure to obey everything that’s written there. If you do this, you will be wise and successful in everything.” (TLB)
Would you like to be wise in life? Would you like to be successful in life? God’s promise of success is not based on your ability. It’s based on your commitment to His Word.
