When I was a little child, I looked up to my daddy (earthly father) for everything. When he spoke I believed every word he said and took him by his words because I knew he would always fulfil all that he had promised me. He was there when I needed a shoulder to lean on, in my openness I would run to him and pour out my heart to my daddy. He would lift me up and carry me on his shoulders. At that point nothing else mattered to me because I was in my daddy’s arms. His words meant a lot to me, his encouragements, corrections and guidance.
There were times when my daddy made promises but could not fulfil those promises due to circumstances beyond his means. My focus was not on the circumstance but the broken promises as a little girl growing up. However my Father in heaven stands by every word that proceeds from Him for His words shall not return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11). He watches over his words until it accomplishes its works just as the rain falls down and waters the earth. He is God, He is my Daddy (Heavenly Father) and when He speaks it will happen in His own way and timing. He does not lie, He does not cheat for He is a God of justice, righteousness and mercy. “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19 NKJV. He is the creator of the universe, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast Psalm 33:9 NKJV.
His words are soothing to heal the broken hearted, encourages you to keep standing in the midst of it all. His shoulders are there for you to cry on. Every drop of tears that falls from your beautiful face, He holds in a bottle. You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book Psalm 56:8 NLT. So trust Him at His words and lean not on your own understanding. He has spoken, He has commanded, He has promised and it came to pass. His words are spirit and truth.
