PARTAKE OF HIS PROMISES
Deuteronomy 6:18; Deuteronomy 8:1; Deuteronomy 9:3
In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You
I pray that you will do what is right in the sight of the Lord, so that you will receive and possess all that He has promised. May you carefully obey every command He has given you, so that good health, prosperity, abundance and success will surround you. May the Lord our God go ahead of you, paving your way to success and removing everything that will hinder you from claiming His wonderful promises. Since God desires it, I pray that you will partake of His promises today.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
The Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail.
If we obey the Lord, He will compel our adversaries to see that His blessing rests upon us. Though this be a promise of the law, yet it stands good to the people of God; for Jesus has removed the curse, but He has established the blessing.
It is for saints to lead the way among men by holy influence: they are not to be the tail, to be dragged hither and thither by others. We must not yield to the spirit of the age, but compel the age to do homage to Christ. If the Lord be with us, we shall not crave toleration for religion, but we shall seek to seat it on the throne of society. Has not the Lord Jesus made His people priests? Surely they are to teach and must not be learners from the philosophies of unbelievers. Are we not in Christ made kings to reign upon the earth? How, then can we be the servants of custom, the slaves of human opinion?
Have you, dear friend, taken up your true position for Jesus? Too many are silent because diffident, if not cowardly. Should we allow the name of the Lord Jesus to be kept in the background? Should our religion drag along as a tail? Should it not rather lead the way and be the ruling force with ourselves and others?
