ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL FOR MONDAY 13, 2023
Read and Digest Today’s Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional for November 13, 2023 written to inspire and bless you!
TOPIC: GOD’S PROMISES ARE SURE AND RELIABLE
TEXT: Hebrews 6(KJV)
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 13th November 2023 STUDY:
The pages of the Bible are full of God’s promises; all the promises speak of the faithfulness of God and teach believers more about His incredible character and reliability (1Pet. 1:3-4). Today’s passage reveals the greatness of God Almighty in fulfilling his promises; an important attribute of God. He is faithful in keeping watch over His words to perform them. His promises to the patriarchs were fulfilled. Genesis 21:1 says, “And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken.” When God could not see anything to swear by, He swore by himself saying “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying, I will multiply you. And so after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise” (Heb. 6:14-15). Abraham waited patiently for the promises of God and he obtained it.
Beloved, hold unto the promises of God; they may tarry but wait patiently for them. Abraham got the promises fulfilled when he was 99 years old. God gave Noah a rainbow as a sign that He was a Covenant-keeping God. What is God’s promise to you and your children? Believe God for what He has said. Trust him because he cannot lie. Depend and rely on him because He is eternally dependable. The One Who has called you is faithful and He will surely do all He has promised. You can trust Him (1Thess.5:34).
PRAYER: Dear Lord, make all your promises for my life to be fulfilled in Jesus’ name. Amen.
