The Lord speaks and acts

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Genesis 21 was my bible reading this morning. And the very first verse I read spoke volumes to me.

"And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken."
There wasn't a lot of fanfare or embellishment....simply the Lord did as He had said. The writer felt no need to explain anything more than that. It was not a surprise for the Lord to do as He said!

Yesterday, the Lord did as He said for me. And you know what? I wanted to shout it from the rooftops! I wanted everyone to know how marvelous my God is and how faithful. Because these days it seems people have forgotten that the Lord does as He says.

And that makes me sad. God hasn't changed. He's still faithful to do what He says. It's His people that have changed. We've lost sight of our assurance in God. We attribute to Him the same characteristics of man and that's simply not the way it is. 

The Lord did as He had spoken. The Lord does as He has spoken. The Lord is doing as He has spoken. 

Praise you Lord and thank you Jesus that you do as you say. I am awed by your glory and your majesty!!
