Pleading the Promises of God

by J. M. Farro on July 10th, 2023

   “Put Me in remembrance [remind Me of your merits]; let us plead and argue together.  Set forth your case, that you may be justified (proved right).”  Isaiah 43:26 AMP

   Devoting myself to the Scriptures has radically changed my prayer life in many ways.  One of the verses that has had the biggest impact on me is Isaiah 62:6 (AMP), which says: “You who [are His servants and by your prayers] put the Lord in remembrance [of His promises].”  Since I have discovered the power behind praying the promises of God, my percentage of answered prayer has increased dramatically.  Still, there have been some promises that I stood on for years, without success.

   One of these promises, in particular, was on my mind and heart one morning when I sought the Lord in prayer and Scripture reading.  As I asked Him to speak to my heart, He led me to Isaiah 43:26 (AMP), which says: “Put Me in remembrance [remind Me of your merits]; let us plead and argue together.  Set forth your case, that you may be justified (proved right).”  God revealed to me that in order to see a breakthrough in the area I sought Him about, I had to not only pray His promises on the subject, but I had to “plead” the promises.  There was a tremendous amount of spiritual warfare involved in this instance, and I was going to have to state my case before the forces of darkness by declaring aloud the Word of God in faith.

   From then on, I memorized the promises that the Lord led me to claim, and I began pleading them with passion and persistence, thanking God in advance for the answer.  In only a matter of weeks, breakthrough came.  And the Lord did things on my behalf that I will never stop praising Him for.

   What promises from God have you been standing on with little results?  Perhaps it’s time for you to stop praying them, and to begin pleading them, while praising God before your answer manifests.  State your case before heaven and hell, and watch the Lord move mountains on your behalf!

   Lord, teach me how to put You in remembrance of Your promises, according to Your Word.  Help me to spend regular, focused time in the Scriptures.  By Your Spirit, highlight the promises that You want me to pray and stand on for myself and others.  When there is resistance in the spiritual realm set against Your will for me and mine, teach me how to plead Your promises with passion.  Thank You that You will richly reward my persistence and my faith!
