Prevailing Promises of God

"By which have been give to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust." 2 Peter 1:4

The promises listed are primarily drawn from Samuel Clarke's Precious Bible Promises (1705) Clarke (1675-1729) was an academician, theologian and pastor. In addition to writing theological books, he also translated Newton's Optics. He also served as the Protestant Queen Anne's chaplain. Precious Bible Promises was later titled Clarke's Scripture Promises. This was his best known book.

I must caution you that claiming a promise of God does not force God to give whatever you've requested as some suggest. The Bible is very clear that certain conditions apply and to the degree we acknowledge the conditions and live accordingly, to that degree God is able to honor His promises.

First note what George Müller said of God's ability to bless his life:

“In reading about all these answers to prayer, the believing reader may be led to think that I am spiritually minded above most of the children of God, and that therefore the Lord favors (me) thus. The true reason is this. Just in as many points as (I am) acting according to the mind of God, in so many (am I) blessed and made a blessing.” Narratives

Note the words of Dwight Moody regarding cherished sin and claiming God's promises:

“If we are regarding iniquity in our hearts, or living on a mere empty profession, we have no claim to expect that our prayers will be answered.  There is not one solitary promise for us.  I sometimes tremble when I hear people quote promises, and say that God is bound to fulfill those promises to them, when all the time there is something in their own lives which they are not willing to give up.  It is well for us to search our hearts, and find out why it is that our prayers are not answered.”  D L Moody, Prevailing Prayer

The promises are there for us to claim, just claim them remembering that you may need to search your heart or your life to know why God is being delayed in honoring His word. You will a list of reasons why prayers are NOT answered elsewhere on path2prayer.com.
