Through these He Has given us His very great and precious promises… 2 Peter 1:4 (NIV)
Today I sit with Jesus and let Him fill my CUPP. His teapot is brewing full of precious promises. I see the steam rising and smell the delicious aroma. I hold out my CUPP and pray, “Jesus, please pour me some TEA?” He slowly tips the pot, filling my CUPP to overflowing with His precious promises.
I try to keep up with Him, repeating each promise as it comes…
…And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (NKJV)
…In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33(NKJV)
…“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
But then I ask Jesus to slow down, I might have to savor these promises and come back for more tomorrow. My little human brain is trying to remember and embrace each one. Jesus understands, letting these precious promises soak into me. He will always be there with more for my every need…for comfort, for peace, for trials, for a friend, for heartaches…Jesus has a precious promise for everything. Thank You, dearest Jesus!
Today’s TEA CUPP: My friend, today as you read God’s Word, underline the precious promises you find. Ask Jesus for a cupful to carry you through this next week. It will be a most delicious CUPP of TEA!
Then they believed His PROMISES
and sang His praise. Psalm 106:12 (NIV)
