Read Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotional January 8 2024 :
And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke.
Recommended Reading: Joshua 23:14-16
In 1971, the James Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever was released, and actor Sean Connery promised it was his last Bond film. He retired from the role, and others were cast as the suave British agent. But after suffering a series of movie flops and an empty bank account, Connery broke his promise and filmed another Bond movie, ironically titled Never Say Never Again.
It’s easy for us to make promises only to change our mind as time passes or circumstances change. But our Lord doesn’t change His mind or shift with the circumstances. Every promise He issues is perfectly good a thousand years later. His unchangeable commitment to His promises is called faithfulness.
God’s faithfulness allows us to have total confidence in every promise He’s written. It frees us from the grip of anxious worry. When we harbor fears and needless vexations, it’s not because God isn’t faithful but because we are doubting His ability to keep His promises. Don’t do that! Find a fresh promise for today—and trust Him!
God never overpromises or underdelivers. He always delivers on His promises, but He does it on His timeline!
The bigger you make God, the smaller your problems will become, and the more faith will rise in your heart. That’s what makes you strong. Are you worrying, or are you praying with boldness, with faith, with thanksgiving?
God works where there’s faith. When He hears you thanking Him for something that you can’t see, praising Him for the promise when you could be complaining, that gets God’s attention. That’s when He’ll make things happen that you couldn’t make happen.
The Scripture says, “Come boldly to the throne of grace.” You won’t go boldly if you’re always begging. You won’t pray with confidence if you’re asking again and again for the same thing. You need to switch out of the asking mode and into the thanking mode.
Don’t fight the closed doors, the disappointments, the people that walk away. You don’t know what God is up to. Sometimes, He has to move you away from what you’re comfortable with.
God will use people, but people are not your source. Instead of looking to your cousin, your neighbor, your friend, start looking to God. People are limited; God is unlimited.
