S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
I will perpetuate your memory through all generations; therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.
This is a promise that God made to David. He said that the memory of King David would be passed down to all following generations. He also said that all nations, when they spoke of David, would do so with great laud. If you look at what has happened since those promises were made, it seems like two more words should have been added to that verse. The words I’m speaking of are, “I Promise.”
How many times has God failed you? That’s a question I’ve heard before, and whenever I hear it, I think back. There have been times where indeed I thought there was a failure on the part of the Lord to keep His promise to me, only to find out sometime later that it all worked out perfectly, but not the way I ever thought it would. In all likelihood, you’re probably thinking the same thing. Now I know sometimes we pray and ask God to heal a loved one, and it doesn’t happen. You can look at it two ways. Yes, God says, “I am the Lord who heals you” (Ex. 15:26). But the Word also says, “It’s appointed unto men to die once” (Heb. 9:27). So God does heal, and you and I will, in time, pass away. However, I’m speaking here of God’s promise to YOU. I believe God’s promises to YOU are the same as they are to ME. In my life, God’s promises to me have always been with the last words to that promise being “I Promise.”
How blessed I am this AM to know that Your promises to me have always felt like You were saying them with a signature sign off, “I Promise.” Thank You! Amen
