Topic: God Cannot Fail [Thursday December 28, 2017]
“And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said; and the Lord did unto Sarah as He had spoken” – Gen. 21:1
As we round off the year, you probably have a list of things you thought you would have achieved this year that did not come through, I come to encourage you not to give up. Understand and settle it deep within your heart that IT IS IMPOSSIBLE for God to fail. God will not be faithful; He is FAITHFUL. His name is FAITHFUL. It is not a quality He will acquire tomorrow; it is a part of Him. FAITHFUL is His name. So don’t get discouraged. Don’t bury your head and think it is all over. Delay is not denial, don’t pack up just yet, God has a miracle in stock for you.
With this at the back of your mind, begin to make plans for the coming year. Like I said yesterday, take a note and write it down. If you want to store it on your tablet, phone or any gadget you have it is okay, but make sure it is written. Take stock of the outgoing year: what are the things you planned to do? What were the things you were able to do? What are the things outstanding? How relevant are those things to you now?
When you have done that, then move on from there, build your plan for 2018: No matter how many things you are yet to do in 2017, don’t cry over spilt milk. The year is over, it is time to move on. All you must do is to ensure that it does not repeat itself again. And the way to ensure that is by doing what I said yesterday. No matter how great 2017 was, don’t pitch your tent there either, 2018 can be greater.
Be clear about what you want to achieve? Don’t be hazy about it. Determine it and write it all down. Then take it to the Lord in prayer. Seek His face; receive instruction from His mouth and be assured that all He has promised you He will do. Your God is TOO FAITHFUL to fail.
