Topic: Integrity Of Word – A Booster Of Faith [Friday March 10, 2017]
Scripture: This was so that, by two unchangeable things [His promise and His oath] in which it is impossible for God ever to prove false or deceive us, we who have fled [to Him] for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed for us and set before [us]. Hebrews 6:18 (AMP)
Thought For The Day: The integrity of your word is a seed for your faith in God.
There was the story of a child who was fond of shouting, ‘Wolf! Wolf! Wolf!’ By so doing, he was raising alarm for people to come and rescue him from attack by the wolf. When the people came, they would discover that he was joking. Then one day, he shouted again, ‘Wolf! Wolf! Wolf!’ And the people assumed that he was joking as usual but unfortunately, this time, a wolf was truly coming. He ended up being killed by the wolf because his words were not reliable.
Now, faith is taking advantage of the unchangeability of God’s Word (Hebrews 6:17-18). It is expecting God to keep His Word. But the truth is, if you do not keep your word, it will be difficult for you to expect others, even God, to keep their word. A man who does not trust himself with money for instance hardly believes that anyone can be trusted with money.
Beloved, have you ever said something and people said, ‘Do not mind him?’ The meaning is that you were not considered trustworthy. That is terrible! Your Word was ‘discounted.’ The fact is, the integrity of your word is a seed for your faith in God. How reliable is your word? It determines how much you would be able to rely on the Word of God.
Remember this: The integrity of your word is a seed for your faith in God.
1. Determine to make your words count.
2. Do not make a promise that you cannot and are not ready to fulfil.
3. No matter how persistent your situation is, believe in God for a change because as God cannot die, He cannot lie.
