One of the most encouraging things for anyone to experience is “God will do what He said He will do.” It will give you a level of comfort and confidence. Think with me for a moment, when someone gives us a promise, there are certain things we process in our hearts and mind about the promise maker; for example, the nature and character of the person making you the promise. Watch this, the Bible says, “…for He who promised is faithful.” Read Hebrews 10:23. Listen to this, “God will make this happen, for He who calls you is faithful.” Read 1 Thessalonians 5:24 (NLT).
This particular text caught my attention, notice how the statement “So it shall be” precede God’s promise, “So it shall be, WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD BRINGS YOU INTO the land which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build, houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant– when you have eaten and are full – then beware, lest you forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shall fear the Lord your God and serve Him and shall take oaths in His name. You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are all around you.” Read Deuteronomy 6:10-15 (NKJV)
Listen to this, our Heavenly Father is a covenant keeping God. His Word is authentic and potent as soon as it is released from His mouth. Recall the scripture says, “It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Read Matthew 4:4 (ASV).
Watch this, “SO SHALL IT BE” = “EVERY WORD THAT COMES FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD.”
We write. You read. Be encouraged.
