When God Promises

“When God Promises” by Kirk Hunt

And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

Genesis 22:16-17 KJV

God looked around for a binding authority. He wanted an agency or authority by which He could take an oath. His omniscient eye peered out through all time and space and saw no thing and no one worthy.

Determined, God placed his omnipotent Hand upon His own Word. He swore an oath, invoking Himself. He chose to bind Himself in promise to a mere mortal as an expression of His own faithfulness.

Of course, it’s easy for God. There is no group, agency or government that can block His agenda. There is no circumstance, past, present or future, that can surprise Him. There is no circumstance that can exceed His resources.

When God promises, it does not matter who else says “yes” or “no.” When God promises, no one and no thing can force Him to change. All that remains is the exact date and time of delivery.

Look through Scripture. God has made promises to you. Do you accept?

Think: I can count on God’s promises.

Pray: “Lord, I accept Your promises.”
