"God's Promises Fulfilled"
From Pastor's Pen
Addressing The Theme:
His faithfulness is declared in His word. 1 Corinthians 1:9 states, "God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord." He chose us and through this faithfulness we have fellowship. Additionally, 1 Corinthians 10:13 reads, "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." What an awesome promise of protection in the midst of your pain and suffering!
Let's call the records in His Word that proves He is a promise keeper; He promised Abraham and Sarah a son in their old age and it came to pass (Genesis 12), He promised Israel a new land free of bondage from Pharaoh (Exodus 12), He promised mankind a Savior through Jesus Christ (Isaiah 9) and through Him the promise of power (Acts 2) as well as eternal life (1 John 2).
Let us be reminded that every promise and prayer is not always answered according to our time table. Everything works best when done on God's schedule. There is a "due season" set for every promise and prayer (Galatians 6:9) "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." You are actually closer to promises fulfilled than you can see and I believe this is your year!
Peace In Jesus...
