Every year people are making their New Year’s resolution but most of the time they failed to do those resolutions. I have tried making resolutions but I failed doing all of that throughout the year.
Just as we wanted to change something good for ourselves, God has also better things in store for us. He has given us promises in our lives.
In this year, believe for those promises that God had put in your life. Continue to have faith that God’s promises will be fulfilled in His perfect time. Remember that God is a promise keeper. You just have to trust and believe that God will move in your life.
“Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have, for God can be trusted to keep His promise” – Hebrews 10:23
God gave a promise to Abraham that he will be a father of all nations and he will have a child. Indeed, God kept His promise. “This happened because Abraham believed in God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing” – Romans 4:17
“So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift” – Romans 4: 16
As we wait for the fulfillment of promise, people may respond in these ways:
- Relying on their own strength and resources so that what they want will happen
- Wait and Pray for it to happen even it is impossible
What is Abraham’s response when God told him that he will be a father of many nations?
“Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping—believing that he would become the father of many nations. And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured that his body was as good as dead and so was Sarah’s womb” – Romans 4:18-19
Faith is the key for the fulfillment of God’s promise in our lives. Let us hold on to those promises and be like Abraham while we are waiting for God.
“Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger and in this he brought glory to God” – Romans 4:20
If God was able to do it during those times, it is not impossible for it to happen in your own life.
For God is the same yesterday, today and forever…
