“Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath” Hebrews 6:17, NKJV.
When a man makes an oath, that man enters that oath with the utmost diligence about doing what he said and knowing he has the resources to carry it out. If a mere man does this, the God that created heaven and earth, the God that can say what will be and carry it out.
God made a covenant with Abraham. He made an oath and swore by Himself because there was none greater. He made an oath not to settle His word–His word does that alone. He did it to settle the disputes of our hearts. You don’t have to be afraid, but you can have faith today. He will keep His covenant with us, a better covenant filled with better promises in Christ Jesus. He wants you to know that you can count on Him even in these times.
Your Father will move heaven and earth before He lets His word fail you. Confirmed by an oath, He carries out every one of His promises. So let your joy rise as you more and more allow it to settle in your heart that God not only gave His word, but He made an oath, and if He said it, He would do it.
Prayer: Father, You made an oath when You didn’t even have to. You swore by Yourself. You want me to live free, have peace and believe You. Your word is sure, and I declare I will not worry in these times. I serve a good God that made a good oath toward me. I praise You, and I’m going to keep standing on Your promises. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!
