Seven Ways People Misuse or Block God’s Promises in Bible

Share this:

Have you been guilty of anything of this list?

  1. Prosperity Theology – Use God’s promises to claim it is God’s will for all believers to be materially prosperous, successful and healthy.
  2. Putting God to the Test – Demanding something from God and not submitting to His Sovereign will or authority or right to rule our life.
  3. Pleading for fleshly desires – seeking something that we think is good for us, but God knows would be a detriment.
  4. Proof Texting – Taking Bible promises out of context and using them to support wild imagination.
  5. Unbelief will stop us from asking or pleading the promises in prayer.
  6. Lack of patience or perseverance when answers seem long in coming.
  7. Misclaiming the Promise from not interpreting the scriptures accurately or discerning God’s will for us accurately.

  1. Please help me to understand God’s Word. I have sinned in the past. NO MORE! Please help me to learn God’s word.I am tired of this sinful life. I only want to do God’s will and lead a better Godly life. Please help me. In Jesus Name I Pray AMEN…

    • HI Stephanie, I was thinking about my own walk with Jesus and when I read your message this scripture sprung to mind. “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23 Thanks : )

      So if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10:9-11

      Its so good to know that due to Jesus laying his life down for all of our sin and paying the price, he became the sacrafice therefore, there is no condemnation on our part for any sins in the past , present and future- Without the Shedding of Blood, There is No Forgiveness of Sins (Heb 9:22)

      Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8: 1-4

      Next step Seeking first the Kingdom of God is key and then everything else will come together. – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6. 33

      :Nor will people say Stephanie, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you]. Luke 17:21 ( if I would of had this revelation years ago lololololololo……. anyway…

      I am super thankful for Gods grace. – Ive been to many places – messed up loads of times – His love never fails – I hope this helps, with love, care, appreciation and respect my sister* Shalom
