They think are wealthy with the riches beyond comparison be reminded of what you have as a believer in Jesus and part two of God's precious promises when you think about what you all with your wealth is what was your world is your family is your your possessions are you wise enough to recognize that your wealth is in the form of a fashion that no one can take from you will never be able to spend it all that it's there given to you by God and it's given you by God which he will never change because the moment you trusted him as your Savior. You inherited something you became a child of God and with that decision of becoming a child of God, you became a very wealthy person now is all this value is where it is.

It's in the promises of God. I measured a few moments why I said there when you trusted him as your Savior.

The promises of the word of God became your promises. You are a very wealthy person. So let's begin with the first evidence of God's wealth that he speak with you. So, in turn, if you will to Romans chapter 5 from and guess what is this, he says in verse six, but while we were still helpless at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. But one will hardly die for a righteous man, though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrated his own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, much more than having been justified by his blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through him, for if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of his son. We shall be saved by his life and not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation I watch this when you trusted Jesus Christ as your personal savior. He forgave you all your sins. He brought you into relationship with himself.

A personal relationship that from that point known watch this you can call yourself a child of God, that is your possession, you now have a heritage that heritage is that God is your father Jesus Christ as your Savior, your brother and you are now a member of the family of God.

That's who you are.

You ceased to be who you used to be a child of the devil you now child of God number one very important.

And until that happens nothing else that I'm going to say would apply the that's the beginning and that's the foundation.

Then of course he says that that whenever you and I are trouble. He will comfort us wherever confidence second Corinthians and that first shaft and not notice what he says. And the reason he says seasons. For example, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction that some of it in older affliction, so that we will be able to comfort others. Those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

That is, no matter what you're facing in life and all of his go to those trying times. He says he's the great comfort and he will comfort us in every affliction, whatever it might be. That's part of apposition and this is what he called the Holy Spirit apparently tells which means the one who walks #so God who is living within me in the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit. He knows what I'm troubled about. He knows what brings me sorrow and heartache) of whatever it might be. He says, is one of my promises to be there and I will comfort you. No matter what. And I've seen that happen and so many people's lives in different circumstances when all of a sudden they come to this passage, and they let me sum explained to a little bit and they say all you mean God will take this off Main yes he will. Then, for example, he promises that no matter what you not going through whatever trial he sets a limitation on the first Range chapter 10 verse 13. Look at that. He says no temptation is taken you but such as is common to man and God is faithful, that means you can trust in you can depend upon who will not watch this. Who will not allow you to be tempted tried beyond what you able, but will with the temptation you provide the way of escape, so that you and I can endure. It is so that means you not hit those temptations those trials in our life. We thank God I can handle this, I'll know what I'm going to buy this gun while you let these things happen you know really reclaim our problems was the promise is what he said if anybody else promise you this. You could doubt, but God says I will not allow you to be tempted and tried more than you are able to bear and he says market then you have this position is yours. When you claim you do not, it's yours. As an absolute promise of God. I have set a limitation on everything you have to face in life and that is a very encouraging word to people are going through difficult situations like then he says, for example, that he will grant us wisdom and James if you will notice in that first chapter I he he makes the promise of wisdom is nobody says. For if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all people generously and without reproach, and it will be given to some buses. I don't know what to do when you listen, you may not know what to do the will, wisdom you have the promise of wisdom, watch this, a promise of God says that all of the sovereign power of God is behind what he promises and he will make it work you need wisdom as you need to see things from God's perspective, you need to make a wise decision. Here you have that promise that he will grant you wisdom in every circumstance of life because that's who he is. You have the wisdom of God dwelling within you that you living in sin is what that does. It confuses the issue and you listen is what sin does sin does one sin crowds out the truth of the living God, and is not that is not bear is that you don't know how to seek his wisdom or secondly you don't believe that God is absolute sufficient to that. This is of the devil always has the devils to create doubt if he can create doubt within you, and he's one of the two of you as a mean you lost the promise no effect is you refuse to claim the promise and so what happens is you make very unwise decisions. And then he was able God should've stopped know God is offered you wisdom that's a promise from him. Listen in every single solitary situation. You have a promise from God that he will give you wisdom to know how to respond how to react in a given situation as one of the things it makes his wealthy tell me the thing in a more valuable than wisdom seeing things from God's perspective and know how to walk and then of course he promises us rest in this 11th chapter of Matthew, I notice what Jesus said in those days, he said, the be all you who are weary and heavy laden, I'll give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, take my teachings my learning upon you and learn from me, I'm gentle and humble in spirit and you will find rest for your souls. My yoke is easy and my burden is light. All of us find ourselves in those situations where we need not just physical rest, but emotional rest.

We need to be able to rest on the inside. What is he say he says, the man he says I'll give it is when you see deposited within these bodies of ours. These minds of our is every single solitary thing we need given to us as a promise from Almighty God, that no matter what's happening. He's there to make and provision whatever it might be. Then we come to this whole issue of peace, and in the passage of most of us know by heart. In Philippians, listen to what Paul says. He says be anxious for nothing, don't get upset about these things, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. What is he say he says this no matter what's going on in your life.

God will give you a garrison, a wall that will separate you from anxiety that will fulfill your need of peace in your life. What did Jesus say bounces and Jesus is our peace, whose living on the inside of you. The Lord Jesus Christ and so we go through situations and circumstances. Sometimes we hear bad news and frightening news. Whatever it might be what we get our peace from oftentimes not from our friends not from the doctor left back and not from this is from him. Think about this. Your piece isn't something you get from him/her and them your piece abides within you. It is an in dwelling promise of God what is Jesus say my peace I give it to you not as the world gives give you.

Let not your heart be troubled when the most awesome promises he gives us is that we can have peace in whatever we faced in life. Now I want to get this went down when you turn the Psalm 92 because here is certainly one a lot of people need to think about because here is a promise that many people are certainly not living by because if they were, are, you could see it and that is the promise that you and I can be listen watch this that we can be strong and fruitful in old age. Listen, this passage Psalm 92 verse 12 the righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, he will grow like a cedar in Lebanon planted in the house of the Lord they will flourish in the courts of our God, they will still yield fruit in old age, they shall be full of sap and very green to declare that the Lord is upright, he is my rock and there is no unrighteousness in him is the promise of God is really promises the righteous man and woman has the privilege of living a life that is fruitful no matter what the age may be and they can be strong no matter what their ages full of sap means energy, strength, bearing fruit still making a difference, whatever it may be, so I would disinvest the window you want to get all we have to choose a leader claim his promise. If you claim his promise today John. I know that you call me home in time to get ready.

But until then I want to give it my best. I will be strong I want to be fruitful in my life to count the feet and then looking Psalm 37 and because he is a wonderful promise of God if I should say you would you like to have the desires of your heart deposited you one of the desires of your heart is what God says this is a promise from Almighty God who has all power and listen. He has unconditional love for you. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart towards what is mean to be delighted him. Look at that passage reading a little bit as God to show you what is it mean to delight yourself in him ultimates of the means. This above everything in my else in my life is important my relationship with him is the most important thing I am delighted in serving on delighting and worshiping. I'm delighting and given him.

I'm delighted in living out a godly life.

He says like to serve the Lord to give you the desires of your heart, then you say well what about who he faced troubles. Real troubles difficult in several what's his promise looking Psalm 46 in verse one.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change in the mountain slip into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam the mountains quake and swelling, pride, and so forth. The reason I remember that verse of Scripture.

This is the influence one schoolteacher had on me in the eighth grade that I've never forgotten.

Every morning we started our class. She read the 46 song in a number versus but primarily she always emphasizes God is our refuge. Watch this when you run when you're in trouble. God is our refuge or place to run in time of trouble and our strength was the source of your strength. Watch this. I love this. He didn't say I help in time of trouble.

He said a very present help which means no matter what, when and where and what present while living on inside of us. We have the promise of his presence. The promise of his strength. The promise of his help, no matter what we are facing in life. No one can promises that but Almighty God, then, for example, if you go back to Psalm 32.

Listen to what he says I love this passage because we all needed. He promises to give us direction. Prayer life in the eighth verse, I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go. I will counsel you with my thing about a position that is for the promise that is that God will give me direction in the time in your life you need is the promise I will instruct you and teach you the way which you should go. I will counsel you listen this not from a distance. He says I will counsel you with my, that is, I know where you are and the way you headed, I know what's ahead of the things your pitfalls under this ancient dangers pieces. I will give you direction and guidance for your life. That's an awesome promise of Almighty God. Then of course like in Romans eight when I think about the awesome promise in Romans eight and that fact that nothing can separate us from the awesome love of God.

Listen to what he says in this passage, and here's a promise, and if he was a little relevant really believe this, he says in verse 38 for I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Think about this. You have the awesome gift of God's unconditional love within your life.

Nobody can promise you that God. Nothing can separate you from love of God. That's it.

That's a position you have. You possess the love of Almighty God. That will never change that if you will turn to John chapter 10 for a moment and here is his awesome promise of eternal security. Listen to what he says my sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me and I give to them eternal life, and they will never perish insane except if and but when, where they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.

My father, who gave them to me, is greater than all and no one is able to snatch them out of my father's hand and the father are one. Think about what you possess.

You possess the gift of eternal life. Watch this.

Nothing. No one, no time. Nothing can alter that under any condition. You are a child of God you are eternally secure.

You live in sin than the sum of the promises about chastisement discipline, but with some of the promise God is giving you that you are eternally secure and I would give you one last we could do this all day long, but on the start of the laws that what I want you to see is is what you possess what you have.

Listen to what Jesus said he is and let your heart be troubled you believe in God believe also in me.

In my father's house are many mansions if there were not some volatility.

I go to prepare a place for you and if I go to prepare a place for you. I'm coming again to receive you to myself, that where I am, there you may be also. We have the promise of heaven. I think about this a promise from God is an awesome thing in my challenge. The reason for this claim what is yours and whatever you facing in life. Remember who you are a follower of Jesus and how rich you are and listen in the awesome capacity you have the serve him with all of your heart in a way that you will never grow old, but you will be flourishing and fruitful all the days of your life. A man father how grateful we are this morning for the wonderful promise of your word and what makes it so wonderful is the fact that we know will never change. You will never change. We can even begin to think of anything we need that you haven't covered so we say thank you. This morning I pray that you will show us how to sew and live with people who are spiritually in poverty will want to know what is the source of riches and we can tell in Jesus name, amen. Thank you for listening to part 11 God's precious promises if he thinks no more about child family for intense ministry that my intense tantalizing podcast is a presentation of intense managing Atlanta, Georgia
