#1112 – I Will

Good morning people who choose to rejoice

Recently as I was praying, I quoted the following verse: Psalm 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. I stopped and considered what I was saying: I will rejoice and I will be glad in this day. I was making a promise to rejoice and be glad in this day. Then the Lord started to speak to me. The word “will” is a definite word; a word that leaves no alternatives. The word will does not mean maybe or possibly, it means definitely, it means you can count on this happening. When we see the word will, it is a promise from the one saying it. When someone says I will, they are committing to a decision of their will to ensure what they have just said happens. I will starts and finishes with a decision of the will. But can the one giving the promise be trusted? If we say something will happen, then we are saying there is no possibility that it won’t happen. If it then doesn’t happen, we lack integrity. The truth is, we have all had times when we have said one thing and done another. But God’s I will statements can always be trusted!!! This is so potentially powerful in our lives! Let’s look at it some more tomorrow.
