The Promises of God at K-State
A new year is here and consequently a new semester at K-State. We were reminded at our staff retreat this week that 1) Prayer is the humble, dependent heart attitude we need as we look for God to move on campus and 2) The promises of God Nav staff have been praying over this campus for decades.
Just before Joshua passes away, he also reminds the Israelites in 23:14 that, “not one word has failed of all the good things that the LORD your God promises concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed.”
That being true and with the faithfulness of God to do all he has said in mind (Jeremiah 1:12), here are three of the promises we are praying for our campus. Will you join us?
The least one shall become a clan, and the smallest one a mighty nation; I am the LORD; in its time I will hasten it. – Isaiah 60:22
Thus says the Lord God: This also I will let the house of Israel ask me to do for them: to increase their people like a flock. Like the flock for sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem during her appointed feasts, so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am the Lord. – Ezekiel 36:37, 38
If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. – Isaiah 50:10, 11
How are you depending on God in prayer for your ministry or family or sphere of influence? What verses are you praying? I’d love to hear from you!
