September 18 His Promise And His Oath

And so, having patiently waited, he obtained the promise. For men swear by one greater than themselves, and with them an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute. In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the changeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, [HEB 6 v 15-19 NAS]

In the midst of chaos and confusion, the children of God should rely on the Lord despite their location. Don’t panic, there is a Word for every situation you may go through. Do not fear for your investments even for your own life, we have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear. God has confirmed our salvation, liberty and success in this life through two things; His promise and His oath. These according to the book of Hebrews are absolutes! God’s promise on its own is good enough but for Him to give us full assurance; He also gave us an oath. The above scripture highlights that it is impossible for God to lie.

He does not retract on His Word and like man He does not change His mind. Beloved, God Has made up His mind concerning the things that relate to you. You might seem to be going under but remember today that there are promises that He has deposited into your life. To solidify those promises, He made an oath with just you in mind. What a mighty God we serve! In verse 18 of the above reference, we are told, “so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.”

There indeed is hope that is set before us; it is because of this that you can rise up from your mess. In that test of life that you are in, you can be strengthened by the knowledge that He Has not abandoned you. He is surely a God that turns your mess into your message and your test into your testimony.
