Just what does it mean when someone says to you, “I’ve got your back?” It means they’re right there with you, backing you up in whatever way is necessary. In other words, they’re looking out for you.
Wouldn’t that be great if we could have someone like that right there with us in whatever we’re doing, 24/7? Well, the good news is that we do!
2 Peter 1:3-4 (KJV)
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Notice that all the promises of God have been given to us – healing, deliverance, peace, prosperity – whatever we need. It’s a done deal!
We don’t need to plead or beg God for the promises. Whatever we need, He’s already made the provision. It’s a available now, always has been and always will be. That’s what salvation is: healing, deliverance, preservation, soundness, and wholeness.
So, you might ask, “Why don’t I see all that provision in my life? “Where is it?” Well, like I’ve said, it’s already here but God’s promises are only accessed by faith. They’re not for everyone, even though they’re available to everyone. They’re only for those who will use their God-given, God-kind of faith to activate the promises. God has made them available, but even though you’re born-again and the promises belong to you, if you don’t use your faith to activate, them they won’t manifest in your life and you’ll do without.
We need God’s promises activated in our lives in order to live the victorious life that He has for us. So, if that’s what you want, you need to continue developing your faith by getting into the Word of God and letting it get into you.
Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Remember, since God is a faith God, He expects us to walk by faith. He’s made a way for us. Let’s walk in His pathways and enjoy a life worth living. There’s no expiration date on His promises!
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) 20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
2 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV) 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
