1 Peter 3:9 WEB
not rendering evil for evil, or insult for insult; but instead blessing;
knowing that to this were you called, that you may inherit a blessing.

Promise #261: I have called you to inherit My blessing.

In this Scripture passage, the Apostle Peter is encouraging us not to repay evil for evil, but rather be a blessing instead. If we are living with an orphan perspective, we will have to scratch and claw for everything we get in life. When people do evil things to us, we will need to respond in the same way back to them. The life of an orphan is lonely and scary. An orphan is left to their own devices to manage life.

The life of a son or daughter however, is quite different. They know that they are loved beyond imagination and are safe from harm. They live in the reassurance that they are blessed beyond measure and that they have a rich inheritance of many blessings yet to come. In Ephesians 1:3, the Bible says that our heavenly Father has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heaven. The life that we are called to live is a life of abundance and blessing.

That is why when someone acts in an 'orphan-like' way to us, even a brother or sister in Christ, we don't have to respond in a similiar way, but we can respond with blessings. May each one of us be so filled with the revelation that we have been called to inherit a blessing, that we become an absolute outflow of blessings to others!

Psalm 68:19 WEB
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burdens,
even the God who is our salvation. Selah.

Promise #260: I carry your burdens every day.

I am thankful that our God promises to save us and continually bear our burdens. When we feel the weight of the world on our own shoulders, may this promise encourage us that we are not called to carry the burdens ourselves. May we always be reminded of Jesus' invitation in Matthew 11:28-30 that says...

28 “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart; and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (WEB)

If you are carrying a backpack full of worry and anxiety today, why not cast every care in that backpack on to God because He really cares about you! (1 Peter 5:7)

Deuteronomy 33:27 (WEB)
The eternal God is your dwelling place. Underneath are the everlasting arms.
He thrust out the enemy from before you, and said, ‘Destroy!’

Promise #259: You will find safety in My everlasting arms.

God is our eternal refuge. Just think of that for a moment. There will never be a time in all eternity where you will ever be unprotected. You can feel safe and secure knowing that your God and Father will carry you in His everlasting arms forever!

When our children were little, I absolutely loved holding them in my arms. It felt so good and I think my children enjoyed the safety and security of that feeling too. If as fathers, we were meant to be a foreshadow of the true Father, then I would imagine that God would feel the same sense of satisfaction and contentment when He is holding us in His big strong arms.

In Psalm 27:1, David declares ... The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? (NIV). The reason David wasn't afraid of his enemies was because he was completely aware that He was being protected by the everlasting arms of God Himself. May we all be encouraged today of this tangible reality. We will find safety in the everlasting arms of our Papa!

2 Thessalonians 3:3 (WEB)
But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you,
and guard you from the evil one.

Promise #258: I will be faithful to give you My strength and protection.

God is faithful. He will never leave you or forsake you and He has promised to protect you from the evil one. In a world that is full of broken promises, this is something that we can know and rely on. The NIV Bible says 2 Thessalonians 3:3 this way... But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. (NIV)

You can rest in the fact that you are safe and secure in your heavenly Father's love. His Word is His bond and He is completely faithful to do all that He promises. May faith rise up in our hearts today to believe that God is who He says He is and that we are who He says we are... His beloved children (1 John 3:1).

We don't have to defend ourselves from the onslaughts of an orphan world system because He has promised to defend and protect us! ...After all, He is our Dad and that is what good fathers do!

Acts 17:27 (WEB)
that they should seek the Lord, if perhaps they might reach out for him
and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.

Promise #254: Reach out and you will touch Me for I am not far from you.

The Apostle Paul was speaking to a bunch of philosphers on Mars Hill in Athens when he made this statement. This Bible verse is part of a discourse where Paul addresses a statue to an 'unknown god' and proceeds to tell all the listeners who God really is. I really like this verse and the next verse in Paul's proclamation of the gospel in the NIV Bible...

Acts 17:27-28
27God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. 28'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' (NIV)

Paul tells these dear pagan folks that God is so close to them that they can actually just reach out and they can touch Him for 'in Him we live and move and have our being'. The truth is that the universe does not contain God, God contains the universe! In Colossians 1, the Bible says that Jesus is the glue that holds everything together. Every proton, every electron, every atom... all held together by the very presence of Jesus.

As you ponder this promise today, may God give you the awareness of His nearness to you. He is not far off in some distant land, but He is closer than you could possibly imagine! So reach out today and encounter the love of your Father that is with you wherever you go.
