The Lord showed Jeremiah a vision, and then asked him what he saw. After Jeremiah answered, the Lord said, “Yep…and you can trust I am watching and fulfilling all my great plans.”
And so it is today.
He is watching over each person who hides His word in their heart; to make sure not one promise goes unfulfilled.
After all, Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28 NLT)
It’s not that God makes sure every cloud has a silver lining. That’s isn’t exactly what Paul was getting at. Rather, it’s more like the Lord is working behind the scenes, in ways we can’t imagine, watching over the word He has established in Heaven and earth.
He is faithful Who promised!
Like Abraham and Isaac, climbing the mountain because God told them to. Abraham had quite a test; to offer to God the very one who was God’s answer to prayer. The very son who was promised by God some thirty years prior.
Though things looked like God WASN’T honoring His Word, or watching over it to see it fulfilled, at just the right moment the answer came.
In the form of a ram, climbing up the back side of the mountain.
God, working all things for the good of those who love Him and are the called according to His purpose.
There are so many voices around us today; each one having a different opinion about God, His Word, and life in general. But it’s not so much a matter of everyone else’s opinion…
What do YOU think of God and His Word?
Are YOU hiding His Word in your heart? Are YOU supplying your spirit with the refreshing, powerful, life-giving promises of God?
Are YOU trusting Him to watch over you as He watches over His Word?
As time rapidly approaches the “end of all things”, making way for the “new beginnings”, many false prophets, preachers, naysayers-people who have NOT developed a faith relationship with Jesus-will have many things to say. They will try to discourage you and I from boldly proclaiming our complete trust in the Lord and His Word.
Don’t let it rock your world or shake your faith. Remind yourself, and others, that because God is watching over His Word, He’ll make certain not one promise fails!
…Not one word has failed of all his good promise… (1 Kings 8:56 ESV)
Amen! So be it!
