GOD’S UNFAILING PROMISES

OBSERVATION: A JEWISH TRADITION SUGGESTS THE PROPHET JEREMIAH AS THE PRIMARY AUTHOR OF FIRST AND SECOND KINGS. THE BOOKS SPEAK TO A MORALLY DECLINING SOCIETY. SIMPLY STATED, OBEDIENCE TO GOD BRINGS BLESSINGS: UNFORTUNATELY, DISOBEDIENCE BRINGS DISASTER.

INTERPRETATION: 1 KINGS 8:56 (NKJV) BLESSED BE THE LORD, WHO HAS GIVEN REST TO HIS PEOPLE ISRAEL, ACCORDING TO ALL THAT HE PROMISED. THERE HAS NOT FAILED ONE WORD OF ALL HIS GOOD PROMISE, WHICH HE PROMISED THROUGH HIS SERVANT MOSES.

POINTS TO PONDER: SOLOMON ASKED THE LORD TO REMEMBER HIS SPOKEN PRAYER TO HIM. BELIEVERS MUST BELIEVE GOD HEARS OUR SPOKEN PRAYERS AND ANSWERS THEM IN HIS TIME FRAME.

BELIEVERS CAN FIND EXTENSIVE EVIDENCE OF GOD’S UNFAILING PROMISES IN HIS WORD.

PSALMS 36: 5 (THE BOOK) YOUR UNFAILING LOVE, O LORD, IS AS VAST AS THE HEAVENS; YOUR FAITHFULNESS REACHES BEYOND THE CLOUDS.

PSALMS 119: 90 (THE BOOK) YOUR FAITHFULNESS EXTENDS TO EVERY GENERATION, AS ENDURING AS THE EARTH YOU CREATED.

READ LAMENTATIONS 3: 22-23

APPLICATION: ONE OF THE BLESSINGS OF A GOOD CONSCIENCE IS THAT WE ARE NOT AFRAID TO FACE GOD OR MAN, OR TO CLAIM THE PROMISES GOD GIVES IN HIS WORD (QUOTE WARREN WIERSBE).
