Dearly beloved, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of–-1 Samuel 15:29 “And also the strength of Israel, “will not lie nor relent” for he is not a man, that He should relent.”
God supported Israel as a nation and strengthened, them against their enemies, and gave them deliverance and salvation to them. God was the author of Israel’s victories. He kept His promise to David, by making him a king over Israel. Thus He gave them spiritual strength, victory over their enemies. The Bible says, “Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.
My beloved, men are weak, and feeble, and cannot perform what they purpose or promise and therefore repent. Men are changeable in their minds and repent of their first thoughts. But God is unchangeable, and never alters his counsels, or breaks, His covenant. He never reverses His blessings or repents of his gifts that he has promised to give us, nor changes his affection to Israel.
With regard to King Saul, there were several signs of hypocrisy in Saul’s repentance. He sought prophet Samuel only to know about his future by consulting the woman who was a medium at En Dor and seemed most anxious to stand right in his own opinion. All his care was to save his kingship and preserve his interest in the people. Men are fickle and alter their minds, feeble and cannot effect their purpose. But with God it is not so. For the “Strength of Israel will not lie.” What God has purposed He will bring it to pass. For He has all power in the heavens and in the earth and He will not change His purpose concerning you.
In case God has promised to do certain things in your life, He will surely fulfill His promise. The Bible says, For all the promises of God in Him are yes and in Him Amen to the glory of God, through us. Therefore if you remain true to Him you shall not miss any of His promises to You. God promised Abraham that He would multiply him like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. He kept his promise after 25 long years, by blessing him with Isaac through which his generation increased. God promised Moses that He will fight for him and his people. God saved his people from the hands of the Egyptians. God kept his promise. God promised Joshua that he will enter into the land of Canaan. Similarly God led him to the land of Canaan. He promised Jacob,” I will protect you wherever you go. I will never leave you until I have done what I have Promised ”. Likewise blessed him.
What do you expect God to do for you? He will fulfill His promises to you. Only fear Him and walk with Him daily. For all they that trust in the Lord shall prosper. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. We thank you because You keep Your promise. You kept the promises made to Abraham. Jacob, Moses, Joshua and all the men of God. We pray that you will be faithful to us also and help us experience the power of God in our lives too. Teach us to put our faith in You as these men of God who trusted you under odd circumstances. In Jesus name we pray.
