Before any father would make a promise to his son, he had better have a sure means of fulfilling it. For a monetary promise, it’s either he has the money at hand or plans to fulfill his promise based on the receival of his salary- anyway, a wise father would rather not make a promise at all or when he does, has the ability to fulfill it, because not keeping his promise would:
1. Be disappointing to his son
2. Make his son lose trust in him
Though earthly, a father is careful to make a promise because he wouldn’t want to disappoint his son. For example, my dad has never made a promise to us hr couldn’t fulfill, even if it meant going all out to borrow the money; he was going to keep his promise first then bother about his debt later…it was as though the promise he made was a greater debt to him, greater than the money he had borrowed to fulfil it.
This I speak of an earthly father, how much more our loving heavenly father? He is the all sufficient God, having all things at his disposal…I want to picture him as a father who would rather have the very thing(s) he is about to promise us in his full possession(without having to borrow from any man).
As a wise father, and inorder to avoid any form of disappointment and/or distrust, He goes before hand to purchase as it were the very thing(s) He is about to promise before He ever makes one, such that it would be absolutely impossible to fail.
“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all- how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:32
I remember as kids, we did always say that ” a promise is a debt” but with God, it’s much more. It’s his commitment to us, an unbreakable OATH sealed with the precious life-blood of his only begotten Son, Jesus.
Hold on in faith my dear,
God CAN NOT FAIL!
IF HE SAID IT, IT’S A DONE DEAL.
He will SURELY keep his promise. HALLELUJAH!
