WHAT AN ASSURANCE
Friday, 16 October 2015
“For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn [. . .].” Romans 11:29 (TLB)
It is refreshing to know that God will never withdraw His gifts and will not go back on His promises. This means that whatever God has spoken concerning you will come to pass. He is not about to change His mind concerning you.
You see, God is not like human beings. Humans can withdraw what they have given to you when they are upset with you. God is not limited by mortal reasons. Imagine that there is a man who has promised you business capital of $500,000 and gives you a date to pick up the cheque on. With what you know of the man, he has all that it takes to make good on his promise, but the day before you are to pick the cheque, you get news of his demise. No matter how much he desired to give you the money, his death brings the end of the promise-unless, of course, he documented his intentions in his will.
Think of how comforting it is for you to know that God’s gift and call will never be withdrawn. He will never go back on His promises. He cannot be killed or rendered impotent. Even if you have messed up, get up, claim the blood that is efficacious over your life, and go about your God-given assignment. God won’t withdraw His blessings; He knows your imperfections and desires to help you through everything. So don’t let where you have fallen become your graveyard. God is not through with you yet. He still has need of you.
Learn from your experiences and move on.
