God’s Word and Promises for this Disciple-Making Movement

I dare not lead without the promises of God. Over the years, the Lord has given me His precious and magnificent promises (2 Pet 1:4) for life and ministry. Some of these promises apply both to my pastoral leadership in Covenant EFC as well as to the IDMC Global Alliance.

There are many but let me just list ten biblical encouragements below:

Faith For A “Numberless” Legacy (Rom 4:18–21)

“In hope against hope he believed, so that he might become a father of many nations according to that which had been spoken, so (numberless) shall your descendants be.”

A Great Future (Job 8:7)

“Though your beginning was insignificant, yet your end will increase greatly.”

Disciple the Nations (Isa 54:3)

“For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left. And your descendants will possess nations and will resettle the desolate cities.”

Prepare for Revival (2 Ki 3:16–17)

“...Thus says the Lord, ‘Make this valley full of trenches.’ For thus says the Lord, ‘You shall not see wind nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water...”

Take Bold Decisive Action (Matt 9:29)

“...It shall be done to you according to your faith.”

Spare No Effort (Isa 54:2)

“Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; Lengthen your cords and strengthen your pegs.”

In A Little While (Isa 29:17)

“Is it not yet just a little while before Lebanon will be turned into a fertile field, and the fertile field will be considered as a forest?”

Take Courage For GOD Is With You (Hag 2:4)

“But now take courage... take courage... take courage,' declares the Lord, 'and work; for I am with you...'”

Expect the Unexpected (Isa 64:3)

“When You did awesome things which we did not expect...”

Prayer Is The Key (Isa 62:6–7)

“On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; And give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”
