"For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable." Romans 11:29
I was reading the other day about setting up a family trust. The article stated that there are many financial benefits of placing your money into a trust, and then the article closed with this statement: "Another aspect to consider is that once the family trust is established, it is irrecocable - the grantor cannot take back the assets".
That statement reminded me of God's promises. God has placed His promises into a trust for us to draw upon throughout our life and on into eternity, and once those promises were placed into that trust, they became irrevocable!
Romans 11:29 reminds us that "God's gifts and His call are irrevocable", meaning that God cannot ever take His promises back.
So what are some of the promises of God?
We have victory. (I Corinthians 15:57)
We have access to God. (Ephesians 3:12)
We have power and authority over the devil. (Luke 10:19)
We have an inheritance in Christ. (Ephesians 1:11)
We have power working in us. (Ephesians 3:20)
We have life through Christ. (I John 4:9)
We have been given power, love, and a sound mind. (II Timothy 1:7)
We have eternal life. (Romans 6:23)
We have joy in God. (Romans 5:11)
We have justification through Christ. (Romans 3:24)
We have prosperity. (Philippians 4:19)
We have spiritual weapons. (II Corinthians 10:4)
As a Christian, all of these promises (and many more not listed) are all ours. Not temporarily. Not on loan. But permanently! Because God's gifts and His call are irrevocable!
