Whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises, that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature. 2 Peter 1.4.

At a certain place there were a few sisters who usually asked God at the beginning of each year for a promise as to their annual report. One sister was of the anxious type. She became frightened whenever she thought of the past and looked forward to the future. She told the Lord of her actual condition. Consequently she received a promise from the Lord, saying, “Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (Is. 41.10). The six I’s and my’s and the three will’s in this passage caused her to bow her head and worship God. She was moved to tears of joy and touched by the fullness of promises. Thereafter, whenever she was faced with difficulty or temptation she would read this word to herself as well as to God. Thus was she strengthened, helped and sustained through many years.
