The purpose of promises of God in the Bible
God’s promises are divine assurances that are fulfilled for a man’s salvation. The apostle Peter wrote, “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:4).
The Son of God came to restore that which was lost. And the believer may therefore expect to have the divine image restored in his soul through God’s promises. “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Corinthians 3:18).
By claiming God’s promises, the believer joins in the victory and character of his blessed Lord. And he can share of the benefits and blessings that are his to enjoy as a result of Christ’s death upon the cross and His ministry as High Priest in the heavenly sanctuary (Hebrews 3:14).
This possibility should ever be before the Christian’s mind to urge him to obtain the character of Christ. He will reach this goal to the extent that he accepts and appropriates the strength given in God’s promises. This transformation starts at the new birth and continues until the second coming of Christ (1 John 3:2).

Infinite spiritual riches in God’s promises
There is sufficiency in Christ that cannot be exhausted, for He possesses infinite spiritual resources which are so abundant. This means that, in Christ, there is answer to every human problem. For He “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20). There are resources of spiritual strength available to us beyond our farthest thought. Unfortunately, we do not use it as we should. This abundance is specifically shown at the time of our deepest need (Romans 5:20). We may claim God’s promises in Jesus’ name. For He promised, “Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24).
