Because God wanted to show His unchangeable purpose even more clearly to the heirs of the promise, He guaranteed it with an oath, so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us. We have this [hope] as an anchor for our lives, safe and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.
We want so much from God, yet what do we give in return for our prayers, pleas, and promises?
Do we praise Him even when results don’t seem to appear when we had hoped? Or do we only praise them when they are perceived by us to arrive right on time?
Do we praise Him in the roughest of times or only when times are good and bright? Do we praise Him when we face tough challenges in relationships and in our careers, or do we only praise Him when things are going great?
He keeps millions of promises to each of us, but what one promise do you know you can keep to Him and never break it?
Demonstrate that you know the power that is within you, is God. Show Him, through your daily walk. Show Him, by keeping at least one promise made to Him. Your honor is His— a gift to you. Stand tall in it by giving to Him what He gives to you.
Father, You never break a promise and I am humbly and eternally thankful for this fact. I wish that I had the grace, wisdom, strength, and fortitude to make promises and keep them no matter what. I know there have been times when I said I would do something and I failed to follow through. I know there have been times when I didn’t keep a promise made even after You blessed me with what I desired and needed.
Please forgive me Father.
Father as You mold me I pray for the ability to tune out the enemy and only tune in to You. I know that it sends out its influencers to tempt, persuade, and manipulate me. Let me discern those voices from Yours. Let me discern the influence of the enemy from Yours. Show me how to block out the enemy and stamp out its nothingness in my life. I know that the only power it has in my life is the power that I give it, through my thoughts that become words and action. Help me Father to resist the urge and trappings to fuel, empower, and embolden the enemy. Help me to always be alert, aware, and tuned in to You.
Show me how to give all that I hope to receive. These things I sincerely pray to You. Amen.
