I equate “So it shall be” to an oath. The Bible says, “The LORD swore an oath to David, a sure oath He will not revoke: “One of your own descendants I will place on your throne. Read Psalm 132:11 (NIV). An oath is a “solemn affirmation or declaration, made with a reverent appeal to God for the truth of what is affirmed.” Listen to this, “For when God made the promise to Abraham, He swore [an oath] by Himself, since He had no one greater by whom to swear.” Read Hebrews 6:13 (AMP). Watch this, God made a solemn declaration over, including all that concerns you; then He went to say, “…I am watching over My Word to perform it.” Read Jeremiah 1:12 (ESV), and this is what makes it a “SURE OATH.”
The scriptures further tell us “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent; hath He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good.” Numbers 23:19 (KJV). Whatever God says, is. The Bible says, “Bless the LORD, ye His angels, that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His Word.” Read Psalm 103:20 (KJV). Can you see this? The angels who excel in strength execute the words of God spoken. Therefore, there is never an occasion where the angels are not hearing and doing (hearkening).
God will never ever violate His promise to you. Listen to what the scriptures say, “My covenant I will not violate, nor will I alter the utterance of My lips. Read Psalm 89:34 (NASB). I am highlighting these scriptures because I want us to comprehend the nature and character of the person who said: “So it shall be.” I believe this comprehension is critical and will help deepen our roots and anchor our soul.
This beautiful text underscores the importance and value God places over His word, “For You have MAGNIFIED Your Word above all Your name.” Read Psalm 138:2b (NKJV).
