1. The Promise of Power

December 14, 2018

“I am going to send you what My Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24:49). Jesus spoke these words when he appeared to his disciples late on Easter Sunday. At first they were frightened because they thought he was a ghost. To […]

3. The Promise of Sufficient Strength

December 13, 2018

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). What does this verse mean? What is God promising to do for us? When I studied the last part of that verse, I discovered it means “to pour strength into.” It’s like pouring milk into a pitcher or water into a glass or coffee […]

4. Dec 12 Advent Devos: “The Promise of His Presence”

5. The Promise of His Presence

December 12, 2018

“I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). We all have burdens and concerns that keep us awake at night: What will tomorrow bring? Will our health hold up or will we have a heart attack or a sudden stroke? Will we end up in a nursing home or waste away in a hospital? […]

7. The Promise of Hope

December 11, 2018

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11). Some versions say, “to give you an expected end.” That’s actually a good way to translate the last phrase of Jeremiah 29:11. God is not […]

9. The Promise of Rest

December 10, 2018

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Are you ready for Christmas? Maybe you’re not ready to answer that question. After all, we’ve got two weeks to buy gifts, wrap presents, make candy, decorate the tree, put up the lights, go to parties, watch a […]

13. The Promise of an Advocate

December 8, 2018

“We have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One” (1 John 2:1). People who live in big cities understand this principle. We deal with so many different government bodies—local, state and federal—that sooner or later we’ll get in trouble one way or another. At that moment, only one question crosses the mind: “Who can help […]

15. The Promise of Healing

December 7, 2018

“The Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings” (Malachi 4:2). The Old Testament ends with this beautiful picture of our Lord. When he comes, he will “rise” as the sun rises in the sky. When he comes, he will banish the darkness. When he comes, his light will fill the world. But […]

17. The Promise of Freedom from the Power of Sin

December 6, 2018

“Through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:2). Pay attention to that little word “free.” It’s the key to the whole Christian life. God always wanted to set us free. Whether we knew it or not, before we came to Christ, […]

19. The Promise of Forgiveness

December 5, 2018

“Through Jesus your sins can be forgiven” (Acts 13:38). Can we really be forgiven, or is forgiveness just a distant dream? If the Vegas bookies laid odds on our forgiveness, what would the odds be—50,000 to 1, or 100,000 to 1, or maybe even 1,000,000 to 1? Look in the mirror and consider your own […]

21. The Promise of Adoption

December 4, 2018

“God sent his Son . . . to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons” (Galatians 4:4-5). Christmas tells us how Christ came. This passage tells us why he came. Christ came to redeem us and to adopt us into God’s family. To redeem means to set free from slavery […]

23. The Promise of Reconciliation

December 3, 2018

“The Return of the Prodigal Son,” Rembrandt, 1667. “When we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son” (Romans 5:10). Think about the phrase, “God’s enemies.” Is there anything sadder than that? To be an enemy of the God of the universe. To stand opposed to the Lord Almighty. […]

25. The Promise of No Condemnation

December 2, 2018

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). It’s hard for us to believe God loves us. Especially when we take a good look in the mirror. It’s easy to feel condemned when we think of our failures, our mistakes, our foolish comments, our stubborn pride, and the grudges […]
