We have all been there .
As naughty , seemingly innocent kids !
Wicked and adorably mischievous , but when caught red handed , we would inevitably scream , ” I won’t do that again ”
The sceptic on the other front , suspicious to the core , would counter , ” are you sure ? ”
Pat came the reply.
” God Promise ”
And repeat .
That was one phase , one season of our lives , usually the most nostalgic of all times : our childhood.
But did you notice how God’s sense of humour knows no bounds ?
And as we grew older , seemingly more mature , I guess , somewhere along the path , we learnt that if we had made broken promises out of a childish , guilt free , blameless heart ,
He didn’t .
True to His Word , we have grown together as a community , into the Sons and Daughters of The King , a doting Father whose Promise is anything but broken .
Pristine and Passionate ;
His Promise stands like rock .
Irrefutable , Unyielding , Guaranteed and Immutable .
His Promise Stands .
I pray we take to heart today that we will together choose to trust what He has Promised us :
Life More Abundant
( and that’s a rather nanoscopic view ) !
But because we have his seal of approval , we can boldly go in and ” possess ” the Promise of God , in its entirety.
Talking of His Personal Promise on our respective lives ?
That dream , that car , that house , that studio , that relationship , that book, that World tour , that song album , that art gallery , that venture , that prophecy ?
In His Name , we have it as our Inheritance, but it is upto us to put our faith and trust in The Only One who neither fails nor forsakes us , correspond with Him , believe The Truth that IS His Word , co – partner with Him ,
And Possess The Promise .
By Grace , through Faith .
We do our part , and He will do His .
As Christine Caine puts it , ” He is responsible for the consequences of our obedience to Him ” .
And He is .
” He who Promised IS Faithful ” , Scripture asserts .
That’s His Promise .
Not a care free , void , emergency exit of a promise we yelped in our juvenile years ,
that’s a ” God Promise ” .
But a Promise of God ?
A Promise we can stand on .
Now THAT’S a God Promise or a Promise of God .
It doesn’t matter anymore .
Does it ?
