‘Promises, promises, that’s all I ever get!’ Don’t remember who said that, but it seemed as I was doing my study this morning, it popped into my head as if someone was actually speaking it to me. Someone has been promised something but has yet to see the results come to pass and you’re weary of waiting! Hold on to your britches, things are about to get interesting!
As I was reading this morning, I ran across Jeremiah 1:11-12; The word of the Lord came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.” Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.”
As I read it, I felt the Lord say, “Don’t ever forget who the watcher is.” Once He says it, it’s a done deal and he actually watches over it to perform it. The word perform, according to Dictionary.com, means
Years ago I heard the Lord say to me, “Keep your eyes on me!” I smiled at that statement and told him, if I always have my eyes on you, I will run into things. He came back with, “I will direct your steps.” As I pondered him watching over his word this morning, I realized that if I keep my eyes on him, seek his face, do what he tells me to do, at the right time, the perfect time, I will see the salvation of the Lord. There’s no need for ME to watch over his word; HE is.
I will trust in you Father, and continue to do what you lead me to do, everyday. I’m not going to concern myself with when or how, I simply know you’re perfectly able to take care of it all by yourself. I will rest in the knowledge that you are God and are the rewarder of those who diligently seek you. It’s my knowledge of you that keeps me at peace as I trust you completely. It’s in Jesus name I pray, Amen
