Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High. – Psalm 50:14
Today the Lord God takes some of you back in time, maybe one or five years, or sometimes even ten, twenty or thirty years back. When people are in trouble or under pressure, many make a promise to God. They make a covenant or agreement with God and make a vow to Him. But the Lord says that many have not kept their promises.
I know this speaks to the hearts. God is taking you back in time. There are those who stood at the bed of a loved one and made a promise to God. There are also people who used to have a lot of debts and promised something to God, however this is still unfulfilled. Others promised God a tenth of their income, but they have not been giving this yet. You may have promised to read your Bible more, spend more time praying or attending church more often.
God wants to remind you today of what you promised Him earlier. God has fulfilled all His promises. However, you have forgotten your promises.
God does not only remind you of your promises, but gives you grace time to fulfill these promises.
Maybe you wonder: ‘Lord, where were you when I was struggling? Why did you leave me alone?’ It could be that God wants you to keep your promise first. ‘Fulfill your vows to the Most High’ (Psalm 50:14). God also says: ‘Call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you’ (Psalm 50:15).
Dear reader, if you made a promise to God, you did not promise it to a mortal man, but to God, the Creator of heaven and earth, who will not forget a promise! Keep your promises to the Most High. Then when you call on Him, the Lord will answer: ‘Behold, here I am.’
