Precious Promises!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

2 Peter 1:2-4

"Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."

Have you ever made a promise and later regretted that you had made it? I know that I have found myself in a difficult situation and wished I could take back my promise. My Dad was a model of integrity and demonstrated the worth of his word.

There was the time when he made a mistake in making a pledge to purchase stained glass windows for the church. He made an honest mistake since he did not hear correctly. Instead of pledging $500.00 he pledged $5,000.00

He prayed about it and told the Lord about his mistake (the Lord already knew) and asked Him to assist him to make the necessary money to meet his pledge. He was retired and had not worked for several years. God graciously answered Dad’s prayers and he was asked to do extra work sufficient for his pledge. It became a special blessing that went far beyond the money he earned. It was an intimate provision from the Lord he loved so much.

God has given us many promises in His Word. The problem is that we fail to search the Scriptures to discover what God has given us. We will spend most of this week searching the first chapter of Second Peter to discover a few of those precious promises.

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
