I no longer view the promises of God as something I’m waiting for.
2 Co. 1:20- “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.”
According to Gal. 3:14-18, the blessing of Abraham came through Christ Jesus and given to us as an inheritance of promise. Heb. 6:12b, 15 says we are to “imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises….And so, after he (Abraham) had patiently endured, HE OBTAINED THE PROMISE.
2 Peter 1:3,4 says “as His divine power has given to us ALL THINGS that pertain to life and godliness,… through which have been given to us “exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature…”
Finally Heb. 10:35,3/6 says, “Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, YOU MAY RECEIVE THE PROMISE.”
We believe, receive, inherit, obtain, and possess the promises, much as we do the kingdom. He has already given them to us and it’s the Fathers good pleasure to give us the kingdom. Luke 12:32
