Tree of Promise

Tree of Promise by Laurie McTier

"Be still and know that I Am God." Psalms 46:10

Recently, I walked into a gift shop to purchase a gift for someone else. Unknowingly, God had a different reason for me to be there. As I walked into the store, something caught my eye...there was a display with various ornaments which had been marked down for clearance. As I looked at them, God began to give me a vision of a tree with each of these ornaments hanging on the tree. As I shared this with the sales clerk, she immediately knew which tree I was to had been set aside at the back of the store, discarded because no one had purchased it.

Of course, I walked out of the store with my new tree and seven ornaments, each containing a promise for us to claim as we begin each day dedicating it to the Lord. Today, I would like to share these promises with you, and I hope that they are a blessing to you as they have been to me. 

1. Blessed. Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8)  Praise God today for His blessings and ask Him to uncover sin in your life so that you can be pure in His eyes.

2  Believe. All things are possible for those who believe. (Mark 9:23) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)

3. Rejoice. Choose to rejoice. This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalms 118:24)

4. Hope. My hope is in the Lord. Those who hope in the Lord shall renew their strength... (Isaiah 40:31)

5. Love. Love one another. (John 13:55) Our lives should radiate the love of God through us and draw others to Him.

6. Shine. Let your light shine before men. (Matthew 5:14-16)

7. Peace. Peace that only Christ can give; don't let your heart be troubled! (John 14:27)

God reminded me that afternoon, that sometimes He wants us to slow down so that we can hear His still small voice as He reveals His truths to us. As I came home I put the tree in a prominent location. I began to place the ornaments, and again God stopped me. I had to get some paper to once again right down truths He began to show me about the ornaments and the promises He had revealed.

I challenge you today to take time to thank God for His promises for each of us as we are blessed, believe, rejoice, hope, love, shine, and experience peace.

Daily Prayer: Pray that God will give you promises and characteristics you can claim and personalize today. Choose to praise Him for His promises!
