A reflection on promise

Reflections for the day

2 Peter 1:4

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.


A reflection on promise

Heavenly Father,

It is at this time of Lent we reflect upon the ministry of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we reflect upon the nature of a faith of yourself, Our Heavenly Father. We are able to see in a way that is clear that the ministry of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one that was shaped by a trust in the power of all promises of yourself, and that your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was able to minister, knowing that you had empowered your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, with a faith, and with a trust, and with a belief, in all that is of you, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that we are able to see in a way that is clear that all promises that you have made to Mankind in your Scriptures. We acknowledge that you have supplied, and will supply all needs, and all needs are ones that can be described as the love that you have for all Mankind, and a salvation that there is for all Mankind through your Son, Our Saviour, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that there is a provision for all salvation by your grace through a faith of you, and that there is a victory over death through your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died upon a cross for all Mankind, to show all the way to you, and to guide all of Mankind to seek out a forgiveness for all sin.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many have a belief  in your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that through the forgiveness of sin all will be able to draw closer to you. We acknowledge that a promise is that all things work together for all good for those who love, and for those who serve you, in a way that is faithful, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some there is a difficulty in perceiving, and in discerning, how this can be accomplished at times.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that you have given all Mankind an opportunity to have a life that is eternal with you if  a self turns to you, and if a self proffers a sorrow for the error of a way, and incurs a  change in a life that is necessary.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many at one time or another make a promise which is kept, and we are able to see in a way that is clear for some a promise is one that is broken. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a promise that is broken may be, and has been for a reason, and a reason may be, and has been one of forgetfulness, and may be, and has been for a reason of negligence, and may be, and has been for a reason where there is a change of mind, and may be, and has been for a reason where there is a change in circumstance which is beyond a control.

Heavenly Father, we ask you for a guidance in a daily life, and we ask your help in making a promise only when there is  an ability to keep it, and we ask you to guide us to always show a willingness to do your will.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we hope and we pray that those who hold a high office in this country are able to reflect carefully on a number of promises that have been made in order to manage an affair of this country, and we ask you to provide an number of opportunities before those in a high office to address a concern that there is at this present time over an influence suggested by some, and we hope and we pray that many will reflect carefully and make the changes that are necessary to resolve an issue for which many are concerned about.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many desire to be an obedient servant  of you but fall short in an expectation that is yours, and we acknowledge that many desire to lay down a life for you but are at times reluctant, and we acknowledge that many desire to do your will but are at times rebellious.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will turn to you for a guidance in a daily life, and we hope and we pray that through the example of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, many are able to keep a promise that is made.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to yourself, Our Heavenly Father, all that has been said in the name of yourself, Our Heavenly Father, and in the name of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who together with your Holy Spirit, is the Redeemer and is the Saviour for all Mankind, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Invariably, people make promises that they are unable to keep through differing circumstances which, although given with all honesty in the first place, is difficult to fulfil. Our heavenly, Father, give us the understanding and alternative methods by which we can stick to the narrow pathway that thou has provided for us and help others. Amen
