The Promises of God:

"But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall" (Malachi 4:2).


Hallelujah! What hurts are we hanging on to that are just hindering us from moving forward? Here's a promise that if we will allow HIM - our Sun of Righteousness will arise with healing in His wings to come and heal us! Our part is to jump on His operating table and allow HIM access to whatever it is that is still hurting us and holding us back. Sometimes we wonder why some people never seems to get healed from old hurts - this is the answer - they've never allowed HIM access to their old wounds! The GREAT PHYSICIAN is the ONLY one who can work the miracles of healing that our hearts, minds and spirits so desperately need - Let's swing our hearts door widely open today - and give HIM full access to work HIS wonders!

A little story for today:

Years ago, a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast.
He constantly advertised for hired hands. Most people were
reluctant to work on farms along the Atlantic. They dreaded the
awful storms that raged across the Atlantic, wreaking havoc on the buildings and crops.
As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job, he received
A steady stream of refusals.

Finally, a short, thin man, well past middle age, approached
the farmer. "Are you a good farm hand?" the farmer asked him.
"Well, I can sleep when the wind blows," answered the little man.

Although puzzled by this answer, the farmer, desperate for help,
Hired him. The little man worked well around the farm, busy from
dawn to dusk,  and the farmer felt satisfied with the man's work.
Then one night the wind howled loudly in from offshore.
Jumping out of bed, the farmer grabbed a lantern and rushed
next door to the hired hand's sleeping quarters. He shook the
little man and yelled, "Get up!  A storm is coming!
Tie things down before they blow away!"
The little man rolled over in bed and said firmly, "No
sir. I told you, I can sleep when the wind blows."

Enraged by the response, the farmer was tempted to fire him on
the spot. Instead, he hurried outside to prepare for the storm.
To his amazement, he discovered that all of the haystacks had
been covered with tarpaulins. The cows were in the barn, the chickens were in the coops, and the doors were barred.
The shutters were tightly secured.  Everything was tied down.

Nothing could blow away. The farmer then understood what his
hired hand meant, so he returned to his bed to also sleep while
the wind blew.
When you're prepared, spiritually, mentally, and physically,
you have nothing to fear. Can you sleep when the
wind blows through your life?
The hired hand in the story was able to sleep because he
had secured the farm against the storm.
We secure ourselves against the storms of life by
grounding ourselves in the Word of God.
We don't need to understand, we just need to hold
His hand to have peace in the middle of storms.

The Promises of God:

Psalm 84:11
"The LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly".

Claiming promises has the pre-requisite of relationship. I cannot go to your bank and claim money from your account. However, I can go to my bank where I have established a relationship in the form of an account to draw out money. So with God - we must be in relationship with Him in order to claim His promises. Notice that there is a condition in this promise "them that walk uprightly" that just means those who walk in "right relationship" with HIM!

Today - walk in right relationship with HIM and see how HE upholds HIS end of the deal!

The Promises of God:

"The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day" (Proverbs 4:18).


MORE and MORE - not less and less - do you feel like things are fading out? Let's Get closer to the fire! Let the brightness of HIS glory and the LIGHT of HIS countenance so saturate us that others will see the glow as they did on Moses face when he came down from the mountain after speaking with God.

The Promises of God:

"The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon" (Psalm 92:12).

Another aspect of this promise is that the palm tree is FLEXIBLE! When the wind blows it bends - that why if it is healthy it endures even through hurricanes! What kind of a tree are you? God wants us to FLOURISH like the palm trees - !

The Promises of God:

"The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon" (Psalm 92:12).

The nature of the Cedar tree is, that it is always green, yielding an odoriferous smell, and an excellent kind of fruit, like unto apples, but of a sweeter taste, and more wholesome. The roots of some of these cedars are almost destroyed by the shepherds, who have made fires thereat, and holes where they sleep; yet nevertheless they flourish green above, in the tops and branches.


Another picture of how we are to flourish in our daily Christian walk!

The Promises of God:

"The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon" (Psalm 92:12).

Let's just say this is LOADED promise! There is so much to be learned from this analogy - the palm tree grows in the dessert it is able to keep growing and stay green as its roots go down deep enough to reach the water!

The figure of the palm-tree gives us the idea of grandeur and usefulness. The fruit of the palm-tree makes a great part of the diet of the people of Arabia, part of Persia, and Upper Egypt. The stones are ground down for the camels; the leaves are made into baskets; the hard boughs, or rather strong leaves, some being six or eight feet in length, make fences; the threads of the web-like integument between the leaves make ropes, and the rigging of small vessels; and the wood serves for slighter buildings and fire-wood. In short, the palm or date tree, and the olive, are two of the most excellent and useful productions of the forest or the field.

The Promises of God:

Psalm 1:1-3  Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. (KJV)

THE MESSAGE BIBLE reads:

Psalm 1:1How well God must like you-- you don't hang out at Sin Saloon, you don't slink along Dead-End Road, you don't go to Smart-Mouth College. Instead you thrill to GOD's Word, you chew on Scripture day and night. You're a tree replanted in Eden, bearing fresh fruit every month, Never dropping a leaf, always in blossom.


We love the "whatsoever you do will prosper" part - but notice there is also OUR part! Daily we are choosing whether we realize it or not - Let's choose to "hang out" with those who build us up and lift us heaven-ward! Let's choose to change the "old tapes" of discouragement and self deprecation to feasting on the truth of GOD's WORD! Let's choose to STAY in fellowship with God's people - the benefits are out of this world! :-)

"He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint" (Isaiah 40:29-31).


Looking at this verse once more - we see the promise of mounting up with wings as eagles - when life is bearing down us - flying away like an eagle sounds just about right - ! Although we cannot fly AWAY from life - we can in our spirits with God's grace - rise up and fly over our mountains just as the eagles soar high in the sky - Not by might, not by power but by my Spirit... let's wait on HIM!

This verse is packed with promise! The word "faint" means to "lose heart" - and don't we find that almost at every turn of the road the enemy is lurking to find another way to make us lose heart! ? Our God of angel armies knew we would have this ongoing struggle - so HE prepared a solution - "they that wait upon the Lord" ....they shall walk and NOT lose heart! May that thought "courage you up" today!

The same WARRIOR God that we spoke of yesterday - is also a tender compassionate friend.

Look at who is doing the bruising - our God of peace! :-) He is our WARRIOR - CAPTAIN of the hosts of ANGEL ARMIES - "we will not fear - for God has willed HIS truth to triumph through us" Knowing the outcome does not make the battles along the way any less fierce - but it keeps us from quitting!
