JUDGE GOD FAITHFUL
It’s the beginning of a New Year! What an exciting time to be alive. We were predestined to live in this moment in time before Jesus returns, and the final anointing is available to us who believe! This year we are going to witness glorious manifestations of His faithfulness! At the start of each year, Christi and I take time to look back in amazement and acknowledge (We write it all down & discuss) all the good things the Lord accomplished in our lives in 2016. As we remind ourselves of His faithfulness, He then reveals us what we need to believe and declare for the upcoming year. This year is no different:
Other versions say, “…Sarah received the ability to conceive” and “…Sarah received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the normal age for it.” Conceiving a child in old age represents to us, what man calls IMPOSSIBLE. Sarah had tried to have children from her youth and I’m sure she was resolved to the fact that she was not able to conceive. But the TRUTH of God’s Word (His promises to us) will change the facts (the natural circumstance) when we believe! In Genesis 18:14 God says, “Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? At the appointed time, when the season comes, I will return to you and Sarah will have a son.”
After hearing the promise, Sarah had to make a choice. Surely, she was weary and discouraged after waiting her entire life for a child. Her body was telling her it’s too late. Her mind and heart were asking, ‘Could she really get her hopes up again?’ At some point the Word tells us that she made the choice and “by faith Sarah received the strength and power to conceive seed.” This means, the ability to dream again. She saw the impossible come to pass by faith. Was her faith demonstrated through tears or endless days of fasting and prayer? No, the Word says that she simply, “JUDGED HIM FAITHFUL!” Sarah chose to believe that God would keep His promise. Could our dreams coming true really be that simple? Yes, it is!
To judge can be defined as: To hear and determine a case. To examine and decide; to pass sentence on. We need to take a moment and ask ourselves, when the gavel comes down, have we judged God faithful or unfaithful concerning our case? What is our final ruling concerning God and His promises? The truth is that if we judge God faithful, we won’t be worried, frustrated or upset. If we are feeling hopeless and ready to quit remember that Sarah gave birth to the promise when she was “too old” and “beyond the proper time of life.” We are never too old for our dreams to come true! It is never too late for God!
We would love to see you at one of our upcoming meetings to inspire you to DREAM AGAIN! Don’t forget our anointed resources: teaching CD’s, books, music, etc. available at www.mylon.org. Please be encouraged that when you sow your precious seed each month, you have chosen to “judge God faithful Who has promised” you an abundant harvest! Our seed takes time to grow. Galatians 6:9 reminds us to “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Don’t quit if it seems like the promise is taking a long time. Proverbs 28:20 says that “a person who wants quick riches will get into trouble” but “A faithful man will ABOUND with BLESSINGS!” The kingdom of God operates “Line upon line. Precept upon precept.” Faithfulness (Trust and reliance on The Lord) day in and day out will result in an upcoming year of supernatural abundance. Why? Because we judge God faithful!
You are valued. You are appreciated. You are loved!
Mylon and Christi
