BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Judges 16-18
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Romans 4:16-22 (KJV)
16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb:
20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
MEMORY VERSE: “Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.” – 1 Kings 8:56

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
HENCEFORTH, YOUR LIFE SHALL BE A TESTIMONY OF ANSWERED PRAYERS AND GOD’S FULFILLED PROMISES, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Yesterday, we learnt the importance of knowing and appropriating God’s promises. We also learnt the conditions every believer needs to fulfil to turn the Father’s promises to personal testimonies. It is also important to know the characteristics of God’s promises as this would enable believers to further value them.
First, God’s promises are unfailing. Solomon had the privilege of building the house of God. He acknowledged that it was in fulfilment of God’s promise. In 1 Kings 8:56, he prayed thus, “Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.” Is there any promise of God you are believing Him for its fulfillment? It will never fail!
Second, God’s promises are assured by divine ability (Romans 4:21). Our God is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent. Nothing is impossible for Him. That should give you an assurance that whatever He has promised you, He is capable of fulfilling. The Bible says that Abraham was blessed by God because He was fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able to perform. You should borrow a leaf from him. It takes unwavering faith to claim God’s promises and turn them to testimonies.
Another characteristic of God’s promises is that they are grounded in Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:20 says “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, stamped the authority of God on His promises to us.
Similarly, God’s promises are infinite value. In 2 Peter 1:4, the Bible says “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” The blessings attached to every promise of God are unquantifiable and timeless. Therefore, ensure that you attach the appropriate value to them.
Lastly, God’s promises culminate in everlasting life. In 1 John 2:25, the Bible affirms this, “And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.” God is forever faithful. His promises of eternal life is for anyone who believes (John 6:47). If you believe God and are living in His will, His promises for your life will never fail!
- Father, I thank You for Your word that never fails, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, I thank You because Your promises have unquantifiable and timeless blessings, in the name of Jesus.
- Any power working against the fulfilment of God’s promises for my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Strong man standing in the way of my angel of fulfilment, fall down and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Divine helpers that will aid the fulfilment of God’s promises for my life, locate me now, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, by Your mercy, turn Your precious promises for my life to testimonies, in the name of Jesus.
- I claim God’s promises for prosperity, in the name of Jesus.
