READ: Genesis 22:15-18 (KJV)

15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,

16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

MESSAGE:

Only the blessings that come from God are irreversible. This is because divine blessings are usually attached to conditions like we see in today’s Bible reading. When you meet these conditions, the Lord will then show Himself mighty in your life and nobody will be able to reverse your blessings except God Himself. God can reverse your blessing if you default in the terms of the covenant. For example, God reversed His promise to Eli because he and his sons failed to live within the terms of the covenant that made them priests (1 Samuel 2:30).

If God decides to bless you and you become unfaithful, He can change a blessing to a curse. He is a Jealous God. He says in Exodus 20:5-6:

“…I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

God’s faithfulness to the promise He made to Abraham is seen in Genesis 26 and 35 respectively. He reconfirmed that His covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is an everlasting one. God is not unstable, hence whatsoever He says, He will do. However, before you can enjoy these irreversible blessings, there are certain conditions you must fulfil. First, you must have an unusual love towards your Maker. Then, you must also be committed to holiness, worship and sacrificial giving. All these attributes are found in Jesus Christ and would rub off on anyone who accepts Him as their personal Lord and Saviour. Colossians 1:19-21 says:

“19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled”

Accept Jesus today, if you haven’t. If you have, continue to live by His calling, as we see in Matthew 11:28-30 that it may be well with you.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please don’t reverse any of the promises You made concerning me, and don’t let Your Holy Spirit depart from me, in the mighty name of Jesus.

HYMN 23:
Standing On The Promises Of Christ My King

1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain:
Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

3. Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

4. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

5. Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call,
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.
