The great news, however, is that God promises us that we have already won the victory through our faith in Jesus Christ. We can be encouraged by the promises found in His word. We are told that we will have troubles in this world. It’s a guarantee. We live in a fallen world. However the first step to getting all of the promises of the Bible is to trust and have faith in Jesus Christ. Here is how. If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ lets start here so, you do get to have the victory that Jesus has for all of his children.
IF you are a believer, you know this. That you have been saved for believing John 3:16. That says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.
Now, if you want to have all that the bible promises starting with John 3:16 you need to become a believer in Jesus Christ. So here is the first step.
Please pray this out loud.
Dear heavenly father,
I do believe that your son Jesus Christ has died on the cross for me. He did so to take away my sins. I ask you today to bring him in to my heart and make him my lord and savior. Thank you for putting him on the cross to take away my sins and give me grace each day through him and have eternal life with you in Heaven. As your word says in John 3:16.
In Jesus Name I pray Amen!
Let me be the first to welcome you into the Kingdom of God. WOOHOO. You are on your way to having a glorified life with Christ.
Did you know? You are saved by Grace not by works. Ephesians 2:8-9 for by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Now, you have to get to know your new friend Jesus Christ and the only way that will happen is to spend time with Him. As you know, when you meet a new friend at work, at school or anywhere. Spending time is the only way you will bond with them. Therefore, the concept is the same. However, I can promise you that the better you get to know him the more you will fall in Love with him. Your world will be turned around for the best. He will be better then any worldly friend you could meet anywhere. Any questions that you have about anything (family, work, money, trials in life) he has the answer on how you can get it right in this fallen world. His promises are the only ones that I know you can take to the bank and reap a great reward. He is like no friend you will ever have on earth.
Here is how to get to know him better.
- Praying (talking to him).
- Reading his word the bible (a good Bible to get is The New American Standard version
- Finding a good bible based church where you can meet new people that are hungry like you to know your new friend better and learn more about what the word (bible) is teaching you.
Now I can also suggest a good book to read along with your bible is a book by DR tony Evans called Life Essentials. This book will help you in your spiritual growth. It has all the topics that a new believer may ask. Starting out with being a new believer in Christ. Even if you have been a believer for years. As I have it is a great read. It really answers all the questions one may have. I feel it even sets one on the right path. If for years you were questioning any topics like Sin, Grace, Faith, Scriptures, Giving, being a child of Jesus, and so much more. This is a must read. Your Spiritual Growth will sore with reading this book along with your bible.
I am blessed to go to and be a member of Dr. Tony Evans Church OCBF in Dallas Texas where I can say he is one Great pastor. So, I know that he is a blessing to anyone that reads anything that he puts out for the believer to know Jesus better. He is a true man of God. Only teaching Gods word.
Now here are Gods –Jesus promises on having Faith and trusting in his words. To get you through the hard times of life. Knowing that you are not alone in this fallen world. That you have victory in believing in JESUS CHRIST!
Today, I want (as always) to pray them back to him. For this shows that I do believe that his words are real and true. That I know he loves to here that I do know what he promise to me as his child.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for letting your son take all of the sins of the world to save us. For as you saw we could not live by your law. So you had Grace to give us another way to come to you. I know my readers are thankful as well and we have faith that your words about what you will do for us and the world are true. We know that we live in a fallen world but, you are there for anyone that believes in your son. You will make the wrongs of this world right as long as we believe in you and glorify you. Being obedient to your words, finding the truths that you say. Not what the world tells us. Dyeing to self each day. Mark 10:27 Jesus looked at them and said, ‘with man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” John 16:33 “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” Deuteronomy 31:6 be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Psalm 120:1 in my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Psalm 86:15 but you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. Romans 1:17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” John 15:9-12 I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” 1 Peter 1:6-7 so be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.
So, Thank you now I come to you to ask you for James words back to you to seal the deal of knowing that you are going to help me navigate this fallen world. Giving us the wisdom we need to stay in sync with all of what we need to do to glorify you. James 1:5-6 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.
I will not waver in your truths to and for me.
In Jesus name thank you and AMEN!
