“Today”… Is The Greatest Day, I’ve Ever Known! Problems And Promises…

i hope you don’t mind but i have another question. Are the problems of life keeping you from the promises of life?

UnknownProblems according to Webster’s are any matter involving doubt, uncertainty, or difficulty. 

Promises according to Webster’s are declarations that something will or will not be done, or given. 

“Today” is the greatest day i’ve ever known because i will not let matters of the world involving doubt, uncertainty, or difficulty keep me from the declarations of God that something will be done or given to me!

Here’s the first thing to know about these two seemingly opposing words. God is involved in both problems and promises.

Problems 1 Corinthians 10:13 “For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear].

imagesPromisesBut God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable andstrong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

The Bible is the word of God and is powerful and life changing. In 2 Timothy 3:16 God tells me that all Scriptures in the Bible are inspired by God. So if i am dealing with a problem where can i find  the answer? How about Psalm 50:15? God says, “call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall honor and glorify Me.”

There’s an old hymn that goes like this. “Standing on the promises I cannot fall, Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call. Resting in my Savior as my all in all, Standing on the promises of God.” That brings me to another question… am i standing on the promises of God or the problems of the world?

images2 Peter 1:4 is one of my favorites. “By means of these He has bestowed on me His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them i may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature.” Exceedingly great promises so that i may escape problems.

“Today” is the greatest day i’ve ever know because i will stand on the promises of God. In fact “Today” is the greatest day i’ve ever know is a promise in itself.
