#1113 – God’s Promises

Good morning people who take God at His Word

The Word of God is filled with promises, in fact, everything God says is a promise, because God cannot lie.

Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should change His mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfil?

2 Corinthians 1:20a For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ…

God can always be trusted because He cannot lie.

Therefore if God says something will happen, we can count on it as a guarantee. When God says something will happen, He has made a decision of His will to do what He has said.

God often makes statements without the word will in it, but if God says something, then due to the infallibility of the Author, God Himself, the word will can be applied. The starting point of every statement God makes, is a guarantee. There are no exceptions…unless…

…unless God’s promise is conditional on someone else’s choices; a decision of their will.

We must never forget that we all have the power of choice.

Words like if and but, the condition upon which a promises depends, often mean something is required of another in order for the promise to be fulfilled. These conditional statements are not always in the same verse, but a principle is clearly visible in the Word.

God can always be trusted and His Word is always true; that’s a fact. But we have a part to play in the promises of God being fulfilled in our lives. Let’s look at this some more tomorrow as it’s so important.
