What we Offer
The Knowledge of God and his Promises
A knowledge of God and his Promises offers encouragement to Christians who suffer because of painful experiences in their lives. We try to guide believers to healing and hope based on the promise in 2 Peter 1:3. It states that God has “granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness.” The passage goes on to say that we already have access to what we need. It also says God will heal us and give us hope as we increase our knowledge of him. Plus, we can draw healing balm from the medicine cabinet containing the great promises found in the Bible. In fact, this passage says we can actually share in God’s divine nature and escape the corruption of the world.
Using Scripture to Fight
So, we have designed the resources on Lavish-Grace.com to guide any believer in Christ to freedom from the past. In the Bible, we have a powerful weapon to fight against shame and guilt, as well as fear and depression. On our website you will find comments on specific Bible passages that relate to particular needs. You will also find suggestions on how you, as a believer, can apply Scripture passages to your own issues. This will enable you to use God’s promises as spiritual weapons in the fight against sin and defeat.
Scriptural Battle Strategies Work
What we offer on Lavish-Grace also includes a clear presentation of the plan of salvation. And, it lists many biblical promises we have found powerful in our own struggles. In our blogs, we provide step-by-step procedures for using biblical truth to fight for freedom. God frees us when we use his Word, in the power of the Holy Spirit. He takes away the pain we suffer as the result of past injuries and traumas. By gaining a knowledge of God and applying his promises, any believer can become more than a conqueror in Christ. These strategies are what we offer to anyone who wants to pursue victory over the scars they bear because of injury and suffering.
