“And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform” Romans 4:21 (KJV)
Wisdom For The Day MESSAGE:
Beloved, what I want you to put at the back of your mind is that God will always come through with His promises. If He said it, He will do it. If you check the scriptures for His track record, you will discover those He came through for. He came through for Sarah and Abraham. He made a promise to them, and twenty-five years down the line, it seemed it will not happen, but it eventually happened. They needed to doubt and turn their back on God, but they stood their ground. Concerning Abraham, the scripture declares: “Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, so shall thy seed be.” (Romans 4:18 KJV).
In Luke Chapter 1, the bible tells us that Zachariah and Elizabeth were serving God faithfully and yet they had no child. They had grown old and there was no possibility of having a child. They didn’t turn their back on God or get angry at Him. But it was when they were in active service in the temple that the Lord came through for them. Let me ask you when you are angry at God what can you do to Him? I make bold to tell you that whether you serve him or not, He remains God.
The other day Job was trying to tell God all his qualifications. And based on that, he didn’t see any reason why he should suffer the things he was suffering. He said to God: I feared you and eschewed evil but look at what has befallen me. How can you say that you love me, and these things are happening? Job queried the dealings of God with him. When he was through with all his questions, God said to him it is time for me to ask you my questions; because if you want to come to me by your merit I will prove to you that you will score something worse than fail.
At the end of it all, God came through for Job and gave him total restoration. “So, the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.” (Job 42:12 KJV).
