Our great potential

By Dave Henning / May 10, 2015

Today Charles Stanley concludes his discussion of ten powerful assurances from God.

5.  He will discipline you when needed for your own good.  God disciplines us so that we can be free from behaviors or thoughts that ultimately would destroy us, that don’t fit us as a child of God.  He helps us become all we were created to be.

6.  He will limit the pressure of your trials and temptations to what you can bear.  God knows our great potential- if we will learn to trust Him despite feeling that our trial is beyond our endurance.  Adversity strengthens our faith and refines our character.

7.  He will forgive your sins.  Not only that, the Lord will reveal what is causing us to sin if we listen carefully.  He will also help us to overcome our sins.

8.  He will always keep His promises to you.  Dr. Stanley states there should be absolutely no question in our mind whether or not God will do what He says.  God will keep His word, although it may be in a different way than we are anticipating.

9.  He will keep you eternally secure.  Dr. Stanley comments that “the great blessing of your salvation is that it is based entirely upon the love and provision of Christ.”

10.  He has prepared an eternal home in heaven for you.  Heaven will be the most joyful, peaceful, fulfilling home imaginable.  We will be in Christ’s presence.

Today’s question: Which of the ten assurances are most comforting at this time? Please share.
