There are two reasons we ask or claim one of God's promises. The first being a need in our life. The second being a desire of ourselves. A need becomes absolutely essential in our life. A desire is something personal we want but not essential. Of the two types of promises in the Bible, one being conditional (Psalm 37:4) , another being unconditional (Philippians 4:19). Any promise we claim with God is not something to lead us to sin.
Example: if we ask for a new car that we
can show off to others, Vanity becomes our sin, and
Applying the 3 steps will help us see promises spiritually!
