Restoring a Life of Purity – One Day at a Time

Read Your Word This Morning?

Posted by Men of Redemption on December 16, 2016

Breakfast of ChampionsYou know the Bible is full of promises for the children of God, and they are ours as long as we purposefully pursue God, His goodness, His righteousness and His holiness. No, this isn’t a conditional relationship but an unconditional relation. You see, as we read God’s Word, in the beginning God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations; that his descendants would be as many as the sands of life. The Bible tells us that it’s happening daily and as you read this. But one thing I believe God points out to us as His children and prized creation is that He wants us to understand that promises are real and He wants us to know how important it is to keep them. Many of us have had difficulties keeping promises, staying true to our words that we speak to others. When we make or speak a promise to others they hold us to that statement, and they look for results because they had trusted us and our words to bring them to life. Many of us have disappointed some and feel bad about it because it was never our intention to do that to those we spoke that promise to. I believe as we continue to trust God and ask for guidance over what we say to others will give clear intentions of our hearts to others with meaning purpose. His Word warns us of being mindful of what and how we speak to other regarding our words and promises.

“My son, if you become surety for your friend, If you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger, You are snared by the words of your mouth; You are taken by the words of your mouth. So do this, my son, and deliver yourself; For you have come into the hand of your friend: Go and humble yourself; Plead with your friend. Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids. Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.”  –  Proverbs 6:1-5
