The Kitchen Table Day 27 February 11, 2020
Today’s Reading: Ps 119:1-5-112; 2 Kings 23:1-15; 1 Cor 4:1-12
I have sworn an oath and confirmed it,
to keep your righteous rules. Psalm 119:106
Purpose, power and prosperity all begin with promises. For the believer it begins with God’s promises to us and our promise to Him. The Psalmist writes, “I have sworn an oath…” Real change happens through a real commitment. Don’t be afraid of making promises. They help us focus on what God wants for our lives and what we want in our lives. Josiah committed the whole nation to God and that meant removing all the obstacles and offenses to God in the land. We must do the same. Make a promise and then purge your house, your life, you’re your mouth of the obstacles and offenses to God. Paul writes, “we refuse to practice cunning or tamper with God’s word…” Let God’s word shine a light on what’s wrong and then recognize it as wrong, repent of it as wrong and recommit yourself to what’s good and what’s God. Don’t be afraid to make promises, they position us for God’s purpose & power.
