Hebrews 6:15 – And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
Every one of us has received personal promises from the Lord; but some of us don’t even remember most promises. We give up on them after praying for few months. We don’t endure patiently and obtain it from God. Promises of God will never change nor fail.
Waiting and enduring are two different aspects. When you wait you expect something to come, but by enduring you try and get it done completely and you become a partner of the promise. Abraham wanted God’s promise to happen in his life. Abraham took these promises every day before God to make it happen. Some times our promises never fulfill because we don’t patiently endure it.
1 Samuel 1:5 – But to Hannah he would give a double portion, for he loved Hannah, although the Lord had closed her womb.
1 Samuel 1:10 – And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish.
If God says that He is not going to bless us with any particular blessing; we will not pray for it. Even though God has shut her womb Hannah prayed. And she prayed in bitterness of soul and wept in anguish. We need to constantly pray till we get it.
1 Samuel 1:11 – Then she made a vow and said, “O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head.”
Hannah made a vow, prayed and wept in front of the Lord, and the Lord granted her wish. The vow she made is the key that opened her womb.
Luke 11:8 – I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs.
The Lord spoke this parable to explain that we need to persistently endure. God has given you the promise word; endure in prayer till you receive it. The promise word you received is powerful, your prayers are powerful. Make a vow that you will give back to God what you receive.
Many of us received the promise word but not received the promise or the blessings in our life. Let us go into perfection and straighten our personal life. If you can change the decision of God, how much more you can go against the devil and break his obstacles. Your dreams will come through, pray earnestly today. It will happen, believe it, trust it and the enemy can never stop it.
God’s promises will never fail.
Make a promise to save a soul and God will save your soul. Any situation in your life will change; Ask, knock and search; you will receive it. It is going to happen in Jesus name. Amen.
