Daily Fountain 2017 - Embrace God's Assured Promises

Saturday January 28th

Bible Reading:     Heb. 11: 13 - 29

Topic:         Embrace God's Assured Promises

During the times of these Heroes of Faith, God revealed the future to them and they identified with it.

Though God's promises to us in life most times manifest in the future, we should firmly relate to them.

The secret of success in the faith life is to see the promises of God, embrace them, be assured of them, and confess (acknowledge) that we are people on our way to inheriting the said promises.

Had the Heroes of Faith reminded themselves of the things they gave up, they would have had the opportunity to return.

Through the Word of God, let's follow their footsteps and desire something better than we have at present.

Let's follow the example of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who bequeathed to their descendants the faith to believe in God for their inheritance which was still in the future.

Let's learn from Joseph who prophesied the future deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt.

Let's forsake the enticements of the present world like Moses did.

By faith, we too can inherit GOD's PROMISES.

Lord, let me see, be assured of, embrace and acknowledge Your Word, Amen

Memory verse:   Heb. 11: 25
"Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasure of sin for a season."
