ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SEPTEMBER 24, 2022 (GOD’S PROMISE ARE SURE, STABLE AND CONCRETE)
TOPIC: GOD’S PROMISE ARE SURE, STABLE AND CONCRETE
TEXT: Exodus 23:20-33(NKJV)
God’s promises are placed on conditions. Claiming God’s promises without meeting the conditions for their actualisation is a big problem in the church today. In today’s text, God promised Israel: An angel to guard them as well as God being an enemy to their enemies and an adversary to their adversaries. He also promised to bless their bread and water and remove from among them sicknesses, miscarriages, barrenness and terrors.
They would increase and possess the land. These blessings were however based on the following: They should give heed to the angel and never rebel against him, they were to obey God absolutely, they would not serve or make covenants with the gods of the land; they were to serve God alone.
They rebelled and many died. The above promises are also for us today with the conditions; they are solutions to our problems today if only we obey. God’s promises are sure, authentic, stable and concrete; it is impossible that God should lie.
Abraham never doubted the promise of God because he was fully convinced that God was able to do what He had promised (Rom 4:19-21; Heb 6:13-19). This should be our attitude today.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, please help me to believe and stand on all Your promises to me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
