Hold on to God’s Promises

This is a word for those who have been seeking the Lord for a breakthrough: Hold on beloved; God will do what He said He would do. His word does not return to Him void. (Isaiah 55:11) He has seen your pain—the devastating health issues; the financial loss; the wayward children; the loss of a family member. He has heard your anguish cries, “When Lord?” I believe that now is your time. You need not worry and ask, “When Lord?” Just rest from all your cares and burdens. (Matthew 11:28) He’s got you! He will fight for you. (Exodus 14:15)

Shift your paradigm my friends: Do not see God through a human lens. People will fail you, but “God is not a man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” Numbers 23:19 (ESV) Luke 1:37 states, “the word of God will never fail.” (NLT) When God plants his Word into you—as a seed, it will come to fruition. (Luke 8:11) “Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.” Joshua 21:45 (NIV). And not one word of his promises to you and me will fail. All of God’s promises are “Yes in Christ.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)

In Genesis, God promised Abraham a “son of promise.” Three men sent by God came to Abraham in Genesis 18. They told Abraham that Sarah would have a son by the time they returned the next year, Sarah laughed and Abraham questioned them. The Lord kept his promise, Genesis 21:2-3 states that Sarah gave birth to a son and Abraham named him Isaac. Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was 90 years old when Isaac was born! “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (Genesis 18:14)

The point is God promised them a son and he delivered!

I receive God’s word for my situation, my friends, and so can you. So, meditate on God’s Word and accept all his promises.

Be blessed, beloved children of God.

Note: It is believed that the three men were angels. We know that the Lord made himself known and spoke as the men looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah. Whether there were three men and the Lord or two men and the Lord (who posed as a third), it is unclear. We do know that the Lord was there and he made himself known to Abraham as the men turned their sights toward the two wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Scriptures for Meditation:

Psalm 145:13 The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving towards all He has made.

2 Samuel 7:28 (NIV) Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.

John 14:13-14 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

1 John 5:14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
