Clinging to the Promises

 CONSTANTLY plead the promises with God in prayer. He has thereby bound himself to his people, as with a note under his hand. Go with it therefore to God, firmly depending upon his faithfulness; He will acknowledge his own handwriting, and answer your demands accordingly. Rest yourself therefore upon God, and wait patiently for him, being assured he'll not be unmindful of his promise; but leave it to his infinite wisdom to fulfill it, in that way, and at that time, he sees best. –Samuel Clarke

On Sundays the K-Team meets for prayer.  This week we focused on claiming the promises laid out in Scripture.  Here are the verses we used:

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. –James 1:5

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”  -Isaiah30:21

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. –James 4:7

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. –Isaiah 40:29-31

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. –Psalm 1:1-3

 But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. –Isaiah 43:1-2

 The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save.  He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” –Zephaniah 3:17

If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? –Romans 8:31-32

He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.   –Isaiah 40:11

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. –Psalm 2:8

 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.  –Psalm 34:4-10

“Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. –Rev. 22:12, 20

God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? –Numbers 23:19


You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed. –Joshua 23:14

What scripture promises are you claiming for your family, your ministry, for the ministry in Uganda?
