My friends have you noticed, we have no problem breaking our promises to God, Lord not my will but thou will be done, Lord I’m going to pay a faithful tithe, Lord if you just heal me or get me through this storm then I am yours until I die.

And the list goes on and these are promises we initiated, God did not force you to make them, like Ananias and Sapphira Peter tells Ananias “While it remained unsold (speaking of the land they had promised to give God all of the proceeds from once it was sold), did it not remain your own?

And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” In other words you made the promise to God no one force you to do this and with that deception, Him and his wife paid with their life.

My friends, what is so amazing, our favorite statement is; well God said He will never leave or forsake me, I can’t understand whythumb this mountain is so hard to climb or this storm is still in my life. My friends where I need you to focus at today is our relationship with God cannot be a one sided relationship.

We have no problem breaking our promises to God not realizing, because of God’s love He does “let the sun shine and the rain to fall on us” each day like everyone else and it is God Himself who has made it personal as He wipes our tears away as He brings each of us safely through the trials and storms in our life.

27-ps-23-shepherdIn addition every problem, and troubling situation we as Christians face in this sinful world, He takes us through because of His promises in His word. Yes the Lord is our shepherd and His children shall never want.

He makes us lie down in green pastures; He leads us beside quiet waters as He restores our soul; He also guides His faithful in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. And at times when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we need not fear any evil, for our God is always with us.

His rod and staff, they are our comfort. and then at the end of the day, He prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies; as He anoints our head with oil; which indicates we are His. In addition our cup overflows, with His love grace and mercy.

And that is why I will personally follow Him all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever, even throughout the ceaseless of eternity.” Ps. 23 (Paraphrased)

But we must also remember trials sometimes are allowed by God who has a specific purpose, or reason far greater than what Faith-testedappears to be happening as we face the storms of life. My friends It is God personally that guides the process of transforming our character into the likeness of Christ.

Our faith is being tested each and every day, But we must remember “God is not a man, that he should lie” if he says it he will do it and if he speaks it, he will make it good.” And my friends the same must go for us, as we say not our will but God’s will be done, we are telling God we will do whatever you want, because we said it and if we speak it, we will make it good.


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
