FOR GOD IS NOT UNJUST. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other believers, as you still do (Hebrews 6: 10 NLT).

Beloved, only yesterday, someone told me that they won a HUGE sum of money and I was almost tempted to say, Lord, WHAT ABOUT ME? I’ve been labouring and praying and fasting for a sudden supernatural supply. However, I remembered the message of yesterday titled ‘WHAT ABOUT ME?’ and couldn’t help but think God You are so funny. You sure prepared me for this one.

Beloved, have you ever felt God was unfair? You’ve been waiting on His promises. You’ve been faithful and have done everything He asked you to do but nothing and it just seems like He bypasses you. So, now you are like… well… whatever… Your heart has become sick (Proverbs 13:12). Is that you? Please don’t let your spirit be down. Keep doing what you know to do. God’s promise still stands. Our feature text lets us know GOD IS NOT UNJUST. The Chapter goes on to talk about God’s promise to Abraham. Since there was no one greater to swear by, God took an oath in His own name, saying: “I will certainly bless you….” (Hebrews 6: 13-14 NLT)

Can you imagine God saying: “I swear by My Almighty self that…”?

Beloved, God’s word is enough to assure us that He will fulfil His promises and we are meant to take Him by His word. But then, He takes it a step further… God also bound Himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be PERFECTLY SURE THAT HE WOULD NEVER CHANGE HIS MIND. So God has given both HIS PROMISE AND HIS OATH. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a STRONG AND TRUSTWORTHY ANCHOR for our souls… (Hebrews 6:17-19 NLT)

Isn’t that reassuring? However, I must stress that our continued OBEDIENCE and SACRIFICE is important. God swore to Abraham after Abraham obeyed His command to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. We must be willing to and keep doing what God tells us to do regardless of how hard it may seem. The other thing is to be PATIENT… Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised (Hebrews 6:15).

Beloved, an anchor is a strong device that is used to connect a boat to the bed of a body of water to prevent it from drifting or moving due to wind or current. This is to say that you should hang on firmly to what God has promised. He will fulfil it… For as many as are the promises of God, in Christ they are [all answered] “Yes.” So through Him we say our “Amen” to the glory of God (2 Corinthians 1:20 AMP). Can I hear an amen?

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
