It came to pass (II)

By Johnson Omomadia
God is a faithful God. He is dependable. You can put your whole trust in Him and He will never fail you. His words are yea and amen. He has never lied and so He cannot lie to you and He does not intend to start with you or anybody else.

Do you know that even if God try to lie He cannot lie because He is a true God. Whatever He says, it becomes.

In Gen. 12:1-4, the Bible says “now the lord had said unto Abram, get thee out of thy country and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shall be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him: and lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran”.

From the text above, we could see God speaking to Abram his promises to bless, prosper, defend him, and make him known amongst nations. Though at 75 years he had no child, yet God was saying to him that great nations will come through him. The ways of God are beyond full understanding of man. However, for all of this to come to pass, Abram had to do what God wanted him to do. Abram had to leave his familiar territory of parents, relations, friends, in-laws to a place he does not even know. If God gives you this instruction today, the first thing that will come into your mind is fear. But do you know that fear breeds torment. But thank God, the Bible says that God has not giving us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Can you imagine how a man of seventy five years could leave all that he has ever known for the unknown. Where would he start from? He had no child, what if he dies trying to get there?

Listen to me favoured reader, if God is involved, what He has promised He will bring it to pass in your life and no demon or contrary powers can stop the purpose of God. God said to Abram, leave it all behind. Just obey me and follow. Trust me, for I am able to do what I intend to do.

You that is reading this message, God is telling you the same thing, that is to trust him to establish in your life what He has promised you. Can you imagine God saying to Abram he will make him a great nation when he has no child because his wife was barren. Not only that, from medical stand point, himself and his wife were well past the age of bearing any child. And yet God was promising him what seems impossible.

But do you know that, that is why God is God. Know also that He still has not changed. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Whatever He has said He will do, if you trust and obey Him, he will bring it to pass.

Just as God promised Abram to bless him, make him great and to make him a blessing and father of nations, so He has fulfilled. The moment Abram walked away from his people in accordance to God’s word, he entered into God’s covenant. Everywhere Abram went he was favoured. He became a very rich and wealthy man, he was a blessing and is still a blessing today because we are the seed of Abraham. He gave Abram the promised child Isaac. Today father Abraham is a great man. Remember, God said He will make his name great. Listen, God is still the same.

May be you are single, graduate but unemployed, in debts, or that your marriage is full of storms. God’s word for you is that you will surely get married and be fruitful in your body; you will not only be gainfully employed but you will one day be employers of multitudes of people and you shall come out of every debt and become a lender to many nations and your marriage will be for signs and wonders in Jesus name. Believe it, and it shall come to pass.

Do you want to experience fulfillment of promises of God in your life? The starting point is you receiving Jesus Christ in your life as Lord and Saviour. If you have not already done so, please pray this simple prayer. Father, you said that whosoever shall call on the name of Jesus, shall be saved.
