Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE.  Join us at 6 PM EST.

Numbers 23:19 AMPC

“God is not a man, that He should tell or act a lie, neither the son of man, that He should feel repentance or compunction [for what He has promised]. Has He said and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken and shall He not make it good?”

First, 1 Kings 8:56 AMPC

“Blessed be the Lord, Who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. Not one word has failed of all His good promise which He promised through Moses His servant.”

Second, Joshua 23:14 KJV

“And behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke concerning you: all have come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof.

Third, Hebrews 6:18:20 in the New Living Translation says:

“So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. 19 This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.”

Fourth, Hebrews 10:23 KJV

‘Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)”

Isaiah 55:10-11 AMPC

“For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,

11 So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

Galatians 3:22 AMPC

“But the Scriptures [picture all mankind as sinners] shut up and imprisoned by sin, so that [the inheritance, blessing] which was promised through faith in Jesus Christ (the Messiah) might be given (released, delivered, and committed) to [all] those who believe [who adhere to and trust in and rely on Him].”

Galatians 3:22 NLT

“But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ.”

2 Kings 4:16 NLT

“Next year at this time you will be holding a son in your arms!”

Verse 16 concludes by saying:

“No, my lord!” she cried. “O man of God, don’t deceive me and get my hopes up like that.”

Confess this:

“Heavenly Father, I thank you that every precious promises you have made to us will manifest if we have faith and do not doubt. At this very moment, Lord I’m rebuking doubt out of my life forever. Thank you that I have the title-deed to every promises you’ve made in your Holy Word. Glory, Hallelujah, Amen.”

Romans 4 lists four factors that tell us how to possess the promises of God.

First, verse 20 says:

“He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;”

Mark 11:23 KJV

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall G1252 not doubt G1252 in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

When you doubt, you focus on your own power to accomplish.

Matthew 14:AMPC

“But when he perceived and felt the strong wind, he was frightened, and as he began to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me [from death]!”

Second, Romans 4:20 says that Abraham “grew strong in faith.”

Third, we also read in Romans 4:20 where Abraham gave glory to God.

Finally, Abraham was “fully assured that what He [God] promised He was able to perform.”

Romans 4:21 AMPC

“Fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised.”

Isaiah 46:11 AMPC

“Calling a ravenous bird from the east—the man [Cyrus] who executes My counsel from a far country. Yes, I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass; I have purposed it, and I will do it.

The last two sentences in Romans 4:21 in the Message Bible says:

“I’ve said it, and I’ll most certainly do it. I’ve planned it, so it’s as good as done.”

Malachi 3:6 AMPC

“For I am the Lord, I do not change. . .”

Isaiah 40:8 KJV

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Here are just five of the thousands of promises you can manifest in your life.

1. God’s grace is sufficient.

2 Corinthians 12:9 AMPC

“But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!”

2. God’s healing is available.

Exodus 15:26 AMPC

“Saying, If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God and will do what is right in His sight, and will listen to and obey His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord Who heals you.”

There are five keys in this verse.

First, if you diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord.

Second, do what’s right in His sight.

Third, listen to and obey his commandments.

Fourth, He will put none of these diseases on you.

Fifth, He will heal you.

Psalm 103:2-2 AMPC

“Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits—3 Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases.”

3. God’s supply is adequate.

Philippians 4:19 KJV

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

4. God’s presence is sure.

Genesis 28:15 NLT

“What’s more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you.”

2 Peter 1:4 NLT

“And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.”

5. God’s faithfulness is reliable.

1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT

“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”

Lamentations 3:22-23 AMPC

“It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning; great and abundant is Your stability and faithfulness.”

“Yes, I can possess God’s promises.”

A.W. Tozier, the renown theologian, once said:

“The man who believes the promises of God expects to see them fulfilled.”
