Thought For Today: “Secret to God’s Promises”
Behind God’s promises is the premise of our obedience.
God gives His commandments, which by the way aren’t suggestions. They’re found in His word so we can live our lives to the fullest. And while God’s commandments may sound unfair and unreasonable, God always knows what’s best. God’s not out to cramp our style or limit our lives, instead, He wants to free us and give us a abundant life.
Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life, and that more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
From our perspective these commands don’t make a lot of sense. Like giving God the first ten percent of what we make. It’s called the tithe. Or if someone hurts us, we’re supposed to forgive them, not return their evil with our own.
But no matter how unreasonable they may sound; God tells us to obey them anyway. It’s a matter of trust, it’s a matter of faith, and since God created us, he knows what’s best for our lives.
Obedience to God’s word is then our statement of faith, and it’s the key that unlocks all the promises of God in our lives.
