Bible Reading: Genesis 19
Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen! How are you all doing? Hope you are great. Today, we are continuing with The Genesis Story by looking at Genesis 19. Today’s message is an implication of the whole chapter. We would be looking at the theme- “God: A man of His Word!”
When we were looking at Chapter 18 of this book, we saw that Abraham was trying to ask God for mercy for the nation of Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham did this because of his nephew Lot. God was determined to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah because of the extent of their sin. This nation was known to be practicing social vices that were against God’s will for man.
In chapter 19, we see that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, however, He saved Lot and his family (due to Abram’s intercession). From this story, I would like to remind you of the fact that indeed, God is a man of His Word.
A lot of Christians live without caution because they believe that God’s judgement or punishment never comes to pass. They ride on God’s loving nature to get away with all the bad things that they do. This chapter is there to remind us of the fact that God is a man of His Word. Once He said He will do something; He will surely do it. Christians do not take advantage of the fact that God’s wrath has not been experienced. You do not want to make the mistake of being a part of those who experience God’s wrath. Trust me! It will not be a pleasant thing.
Look at what God did to Sodom and Gomorrah, He burnt the city down. Do not take God’s Words for granted. Just because it hasn’t anything yet; that doesn’t mean He never will. It’s just that we don’t know His timings. In the same vain, when God tells you that He will bless you, He will. It might not be immediately, but He will. Just be patient.
In all you do, always remember that God is a man of His Word. Make sure to follow His Word diligently and He will be with you always.
If you are reading this for the first time, and you would want to have a father who never disappoints. A father is always true to His word; then this prayer is for you. Kindly ray this short prayer with all sincerity.
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board. You can now be exempted from the wrath of the enemy and of God. Not only do you experience this, but your whole family as well. Wow! Isn’t the God you serve so cool? He is. Not only do you enjoy this, but you enjoy other blessings God has in store for His children.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out. Hallelujah!
Have a wonderful day and let God inspire you!
