“My son, give attention to My words;
Incline your ear to My sayings.
Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.”
and all of chapter 4
When the devil says, “Can’t you see what has occurred?”
we can say, “I only see the promises in God’s Word.”
Yes, there are times when we must “see” through faith’s eye,
but we’re confident of our God–it’s impossible for Him to lie.
No matter the problem or how it came about,
we trust in God’s love and in His ability to work things out.
He’s faithful to keep His Word–its integrity is absolute.
There’s no Word of scripture that any person, or the devil, can ever refute.
P. A. Oltrogge
“For example, there was God’s promise to Abraham. Since there was no one greater to swear by, God took an oath in his own name, saying:
“’I will certainly bless you,
and I will multiply your descendants beyond number.’
“Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised.
“Now when people take an oath, they call on someone greater than themselves to hold them to it. And without any question that oath is binding. God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his mind.
“So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.”
