Many times in human perspective, God’s way seem to be deviating from God’s promise. But the truth remains that God’s promise is fulfilled in God’s way. 2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise”. Often things happen in such a way that we would think that it happens against God’s will. When a blessing promised by God is delayed, we think that God has revoked His promise.
God never revokes His promise. His promises are eternal. The Word of God says, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent. Has He said and will He not do it? Or Has he spoken, and will He not make it good?”. After losing all the blessings of His life, Job says in Job 23:13, “But God is unique, and who can make Him change? And whatever His soul desires, that He does.” He boldly declares that God is so unique and He can bring anything to pass no matter whoever tries to stop it.
“For He performs what is appointed for me”, He says in Job 23:14. What a wonderful statement of faith! Even after experiencing so many bitterness in His life, He still believes that God will do what is planned for him. More than all Job believed in the ability of God so much that He says in Job 42:2, “I know that You can do everything and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You”.
God will fulfill His Promise. He is able to fulfill it in ways that are beyond our understanding. But do you believe in His ability?
