God is Faithful
by Danny Tariman
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away” (Mark 13:31)
Early in my “renewed life” I was taught that the Bible is a Word from God. I believe it. I believe that it has promises that are certain to pass or manifest.
This has been my life. To trust the LORD and to trust in His Word.
One of my dearly-held promise is from Mark 11:24
“Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours”
I believe this promise. I believe His Word in Mark 13:31 that His “words will not pass away”
Strengthened by these two promises, I prayed, and I claimed, that the LORD will grant me a job despite my age.
One day, I got a message from a friend whom I have not spoken for many, many months. He asked if I will be interested in a job to head an IT Department of a company. I said, “I am”. And so, he gave me a
I dialed the number and I was immediately scheduled for a face-to-face interview with the company head.
The interview went well. But I haven’t received any update for the next 2 weeks, which made me wonder.
While my family & I were having our vacation in the province, I received a call from an unknown number, which happened to be the HR Manager of the company where I had an interview a couple of weeks ago. And lo and behold! It was a job offer!
We went back to Manila, excited that I will be starting a new job.
Indeed, the LORD is faithful; what He promises, He fulfills.
Reflection: Do you believe in the Word of God? Do you believe that His promises will come to pass?
Prayer: Lord Jesus, grant me that faith to move mountains. Let the prayers of my heart come to pass in Your time. Amen.
