My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips – Psalm 89:34
We serve a God who honors His Word more than His name. He is bound to His promises regardless of us. There are certain kinds of people that give you a check and you can confidently go to the bank knowing that you can cash the check comfortably, because their net worth can handle what is written on the check. Likewise, you can ‘go to the bank’ with anything God tells you and you can make withdrawals with it because He who promised is faithful and He will perform what He has said; besides, He has the wherewithal and He is willing.
God’s faithfulness guarantees His promises will always come to pass. His promises are not like men’s promises. His promises are actually backed by an oath and they are COVENANTS! He authorized these covenants with the blood/death of the Testator – Jesus Christ. Moreover, He has not broken His covenant with the Sun and the Moon; therefore, as long as you still see the sun and the moon, know that God is still working on your case. He desires to see His Word come to pass more than you even desire it; it is His name and integrity that are at stake.
Therefore, if you are standing on His promises today, be reassured that you will not be disappointed. God is a faithful promise keeper who has a reliable track record. You may say, ‘Pastor, it looks as if God has not kept His promise to me because we are almost halfway into the year.’ Just hold on to it, it is only a matter of time and every day, time is ticking. Every promise of God has an appointed time to it and He will keep that appointment with you. If you doubt, go outside and look at the moon or the sun, and be reminded that His words will NEVER FAIL!
In addition, the fact that;
a. You are alive today is a promise kept – for by His mercies you are not consumed.
b. You are healthy and not dealing with ‘a disease without diagnosis,’ is a promise kept.
c. You have a job OR a business of your own, is a promise kept.
d. You are married…You have a child or children is a promise kept.
e. You have some money in the bank…You have a roof over your head – Kept promise.
f. You have a car…You have a house of your own, is a Promise kept.
g. You went on that trip and came back, is a promise kept.
Finally, God already gave you His best gift – Jesus. This shows that there is nothing else He cannot give you. DON’T FORGET TOO QUICKLY AND LIVE AS IF THERE IS NO GOD!
+ Thank God for His attribute as a Promise Keeper who will never break any of His promises to you.
+ Bear witness with God’s word and declare the promises of God concerning your life by faith into the atmosphere – “By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.” (II Corinthians 13:1b).
