GOD IS STILL FAITHFUL
Monday, 11 May 2015
“Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)” Hebrews 10:23 (KJV)
I know that you may still have unanswered questions in your heart about why this and that thing has not happened yet, but I want to remind you that the God you serve is still faithful, just and righteous. The scriptures in Psalms 36:6 declare that His righteousness is like the great mountains which cannot be moved. God is committed to bringing to pass every promise He has made concerning you. You can indeed stake your life on what He has said and not see shame. No one has ever served God and gone away empty handed. Men may have laughed at you, mocked or ridiculed you but I encourage you to hang in there because it is the dawn of a new day. I encourage you to expect great things to happen to you. Remember that expectation is the mother of miracles, so don’t cancel yourself out. It may be tough out there in the world, but for you it will be different. You may not know how or when, but I can assure you that He will do it in your life.
The last time I checked the scriptures, I saw that Esther, though, a slave girl, rose to the position of a queen in a foreign country. Think about it! It had never happened before. It was a new thing. God was at work in her life. Grace was speaking for her and the king had no choice than to choose her from among the whole lot. That same grace will single you out for favour. The scripture also tells us that David, though an ordinary shepherd boy was catapulted by the grace of God to the throne of Israel. It had never happened before for the last child in a family to ascend to the throne. What is that saying to you? Understand that God can turn around your situation overnight. It may never have happened in your family before, but that is what makes Him God. David was the least in his family but when it comes to God, He is at liberty to bless whom He chooses to bless.
Everyone around you may be failing, but that is not your portion. You are different! Beloved, you have heard the testimonies of others; let me also assure you that we will hear yours also.
