Bible Reading: Genesis 21
Memory Verse: Genesis 21: 1
Now the Lord was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did for Sarah what he had promised.
Good morning ladies and gentlemen! How are you all doing? Hope you are doing well. How was the weekend? Today, we are beginning a new week- long journey through Genesis 21. Today we would be looking at the theme, “God’s promises never fails.”
From the verse we are focusing on, we see that God was gracious to Sarah and did what He had promised her. This message might be very short because it is a reminder to someone out there who is losing hope in God.
When you read on you find out that God’s promise to Sarah was to give her a child. He did so in her old age. Here, God is telling us that all the power in heaven and on earth belong to Him. He has the power to do anything and everything He wants to do.
He always delivers on His promise. No matter how long ago He may have made it. It shall surely come to pass. Once God makes a promise with you, it is already done/ formed/ created. He just gives it to you at the right time. The right time may be tomorrow or next year or a hundred years from now. The length of the waiting period does not matter. You just have to hold on to that promise and continue to trust in Him.
Before He hands you the promise, He would train you on how to take care of the promise; through life’s tests. Most importantly, He would train you on how to grow in Him. These are the fundamentals that would ensure that you would be able to handle the promise.
I am here to tell you (those waiting on your promise) that it is done. Just keep on trusting God. He is with you every step of the way; waiting till the right time. He just wants you to show Him that you can take care of whatever He is about to give you. Do not lose hope; keep trusting. I know it may not be easy. God is with you every step of the way. He would give you the strength if you open up for Him to continuously fill you. Stand strong my brother or sister. That promise would come to pass soon. Hallelujah!
If you are reading this message, and you are tired of facing disappointment from people who fail to keep their promises. Then this prayer is for you. Through this prayer, you would have a father who never fails on His promise. Take a few moments, to say this prayer sincerely.
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!
