ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL FOR FRIDAY 17, 2023
Read and Digest Today’s Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional for November 17, 2023 written to inspire and bless you!
TOPIC: IMMUTABILITY OF GOD’S WORD
6:1. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
6:2. Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
6:3. And this will we do, if God permit.
6:4. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
6:5. And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
6:6. If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
6:7. For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:
6:8. But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
6:9. But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.
6:10. For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
6:11. And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
6:12. That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
6:13. For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,
6:14. Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.
6:15. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
6:16. For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.
6:17. Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:
6:18. That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
6:19. Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
6:20. Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
Anglican Daily Fountain 17th November 2023 STUDY:
The integrity of anyone is measured by how he keeps to his word. So many times, people are sincere and give their word to people, but unfortunately, they are not the controllers of seasons and circumstances in their lives. So many times, a man who has the financial capacity to fulfil a task, makes a promise but dies before keeping his word; even sicknesses or other challenges of life can hinder a man’s ability to fulfil his words at a given time.
Because man is within eternity, he is controlled by all the instrumentality of the changes and chances of life.
God is the creator of the whole universe; He is outside time and is not affected by times and seasons. He is not a man that He would lie or change His mind (Numb. 23:19). He created all things, so He can move all of His creation to favour His course. Have you discovered any of His promises to you? Relax;He is capable to fulfil it! By two immutable things, God cannot lie: firstly, He made a promise to keep to His covenant; secondly, He swore an oath to keep to His word. He has no capacity to change in character and will not start with you. He is capable!
PRAYER: Lord, I believe your capacity to take care of me, my family and my future.
