A Thought for Today: ” The Certainty of God’s Promise”
When someone promises to do something, does that mean it will be done?
Unfortunately, not always.
I try to be a man of my word.
If I say I am going to do something, I want people to be able to count on that.
However, just recently I promised to do something, I intended to do it but I forgot about it; how embarrassing.
When the Lord God says something He will do it.
Please read the following verses.
13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.”
15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.
16 Men swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument.
17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged.
19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
How comforting it is to know we can always count on the Lord to do what He says He will do.
As believers, we have perhaps several Bibles that let us know what the Lord God will or will not do.
Do we serve an Awesome Lord and God or what?
