God’s Promises

October 28, 2013 — Leave a comment

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. – 2 Peter 1:4

So I had another dream while I was in Hawaii that I’d like to share with you. In this dream, I was dressed in all white and I was about to walk down the aisle. I suddenly realized that I didn’t have a veil to cover my head. As I became aware of this, a presence came next to me on the right side and pinned a veil on my head. It was white but on the bottom was a rainbow that looked like it was painted with watercolors. I told the presence that I couldn’t wear it because it wasn’t all white but the music started and I was gently nudged down the aisle. Then I woke up from this dream.

I knew that the veil was a sign of me being covered with the promises of God. But that got me thinking about His promises. We know that there are promises in scripture that He has available for all of His children, right? But what about the personal promises over my life, and your life? How can we know for sure if something is even a promise over our lives or just  part of vain imagination? I asked this question when I was a student in SSM a couple of years ago and was told that all promises are confirmed by the word.

But what if the promise is something very specific that isn’t in the word? Or is that a way to know that it’s not a promise from God, if you can’t find it in the word? An example of this would be something like a woman believes that she will have a son one day because it’s been spoken over her multiple times and she has had dreams about him, etc. Can she believe this is truly a promise based on examples of other women in the Bible, like Sarah or Hannah?

I hope this makes sense. I’m really still fleshing this out and thought I’d share it with you :). Do you have any additional revelation into personal promises from God? I’d love to hear about it.
