Promises, Promises- Are All the Promises in the Bible For You?

Click this link to a helpful worksheet that will help determine context of Old Testament passages and to help us consider whether we can claim them for ourselves.

The truth is: we cannot claim everything for ourselves without looking carefully at context- who the promise was for.  For example, if I wrote a letter to my firstborn daughter that specifically addressed her; my second daughter could not claim the letter is for her just because she found it.
