The Bible, God's Word. It is full of promises BUT, yes, BUT. With God's promises come conditions or commands.
We want the promises BUT do we want to be obedient to the command or condition? Remember Abraham. God gave him a promise but it also demanded obedience. By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac; and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son. Hebrews 11:17
Psalm 16:11says, In Your presence is fullness of joy. I am promised joy BUT I have to be in God's presence. I have to be in the Word, in prayer and in communion with Him daily to enjoy the blessing , the benefit the promise of joy.
