A Sworn Declaration 2
“For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute. Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.” Hebrews 6:16-18 (NKJV).
Our opening scripture shows us that God entered into a covenant with Abraham to prove to him that He will keep to His Word and perform all that He has promised to Him. God sacrificed Himself; He swore to fulfill every promise He had made in the Bible. That is how serious every promise in the Bible is.
The reason many do not see what they believe for come to pass is because they don’t believe it. If you truly believe that God will always do what He has said, you will give praise to Him. Remember that Abraham was strong in faith giving glory to God. (See Romans 14:20).
Wherever there is faith, there is praise. Psalm 50:23 says, “Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me …” This means that when we offer praise to God we glorify Him.
In the Name of Jesus, I declare that the Word of God is working mightily in me bringing forth the good life, producing excellence and bringing forth glory and praise to God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
For further study, read:
Isaiah 14:24, Isaiah 55:11, Hebrews 6:13.
Doing the Word
Offer praise to God to glorify Him even before you see the visible manifestation of that which you believe for.
