- Titus 1:1
The journey may surprise us
- Genesis 37:2-11, 28, 36; 39:20; 40:14, 23; 41:1; 46:29-30 – There was nothing obvious about how Joseph’s story would work out!
- I Corinthians 10:13 – How will God keep this promise in various circumstances? It could be something we don’t expect. It could be through external factors or through my own practice and training.
Some promises have conditions attached
- Genesis 12:5-7 – God made this promise to Abram while he was standing in the land of Canaan! See Acts 7:5.
- Joshua 23:14-16 – The land promise was contingent on them continuing to serve God.
- Colossians 1:21-23 – The promise of salvation has conditions!
- Hebrews 3:1-14; 4:1, 11 – Stay faithful! Don’t fall away.
God can work out the details
- Genesis 17:19
- Genesis 22:2 – Abraham trusted God to work out the details.
- Hebrews 11:17-19
- I John 5:14
- God’s word is a solid foundation. Let us be thankful for His promises!
