OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL SUNDAY 29TH MAY 2022 (GOD IS FAITHFUL 2)
TOPIC: “God Is Faithful 2”
MEMORISE: Jeremiah 1:12
“Then said the Lord unto me, Thou host well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.”
READ: Isaiah 52:7-12 (KJV)
7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
8 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.
9 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.
10 The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.
12 For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the Lord will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your reward.
God promised the salvation of mankind right from the Garden of Eden and though its fulfilment seemed to tarry, it was actualised at the appointed time. This simply tells us that the faithfulness of God will always make good all the promises He has spoken concerning you. Even when it seems it is delayed, wait for it. It will surely come to pass (Habakkuk 2:3).
One aspect of God’s faithfulness we will consider today is that which pertains to our redemption. It is amazing that God began the redemption process almost immediately after the fall of man – promising us ultimate victory, according to Genesis 3:15.
When God began to deal with the children of Israel, He had redemption at heart all the way from the days of Abraham. One of His promises to Abraham in Genesis 12:3 has to do with salvation coming from his seed.
Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. – (Hosea 1:10)
The Scripture above was re-enacted in the New Testament when Paul, an apostle, was affirming the faithfulness of God to His promise of the redemption of the Gentiles (Romans 9:26). Our text of today tells of the promise of God concerning salvation. If you are yet to take advantage of this offer of salvation which was freely promised and given, please do so today before it is too late. The Bible says:
For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. – (2 Corinthians 6:2).
For those who have given their lives to Jesus already, be confident that all His promises to you will be performed at the appointed time. Continue to trust in Him with all your heart and be joyful as you wait on Him. I assure you that God is faithful and He will never disappoint you.
Search the scriptures for God’s promises relating to you and claim them.
