When I was a child, I vividly remembered how my tatay (a fisherman) would make a promise that he will give us pasalubong on the condition that, while he’s away, we should help our nanay do the household chores. True to his words, he never failed to bring home the promised pasalubong.
In Jeremiah 1:12 (ESV), the Lord said to Jeremiah, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.” In saying this, the Lord has been impressing upon Jeremiah then, and to us now, the fact that He is ever awake to watch His Word and fulfill it.
The Lord also said, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” Sad to say, this is one thing we most repeatedly disobey. Remember, He promised to bless if we obey and chasten if we disobey.
Do you want to see God’s promises fulfilled in your life? OBEY HIS WORD!
