A Man of His Word
Often times, you may find yourself discussing how God is truly a Man of His Word. And though this is easy for you to say, how many of you actually believe it? Do you walk in this understanding every day? Essentially, do your actions line up to what it is that you say you believe?
In our scripture meditation for today, God reminds Jeremiah, of His faithfulness. He wanted to ensure Jeremiah understood that His promise of restoring His covenant to the Israelite people was true. What better way than to turn Jeremiah’s attention to the covenant God made with the sun and the moon. No matter what happens, you can expect to see the sun and moon appear everyday.
Doesn't this make you think? If God is able to keep this covenant, what makes you think He won't fulfill yours? Yes it can become taxing waiting on God, however doesn't He always come through? Isn't our Father, who art in Heaven, a man of His Word?
““This is what the Lord says: If you can break my covenant with the day and my covenant with the night so that day and night cease to come at their regular time, then also my covenant with my servant David may be broken. If that could happen, then he would not have a son reigning on his throne and the Levitical priests would not be my ministers.”
Jeremiah 33:20-21 CSB
