We were about to drive out for just some minutes when Olive ran to her mum saying, “I want to go with you”. She was not appropriately dressed. Her mum told her to go dress up. She ran inside with such speed to pick a dress and a pair of shoes. 

While she dressed up, she heard the sound of the door and began to run and cry thinking she had been left behind. I kept reassuring her that Mum was still around. At a point, Mum walked back in and said to her, “I am still here. I would not lie to you that I am waiting for you. Is that okay?” She nodded with a smile. 

We looked at each other and smiled. Why? We remembered the days when older ones used the trick of “Go get your shoes” to leave us behind. 

First, it may be a long time since you were asked, but are you ready to go with the Lord when He shall appear? Will you still be looking for something? Will you be like Jesse’s other sons, whom Samuel had to be telling, “Go and sanctify yourself”? They needed notice yet they were not chosen for kingship. 

Or will you be like David that came straight from the field and did not need to be told to get sanctified? He was living a sanctified life. He needed no emergency preparation. He was ready for the day of the Lord’s appointment for him in destiny. His daily living was sanctified living. It is better to live ready than just get ready. 

A time is coming when there will be no room to make any adjustments. While the five virgins sought emergency oil, the door was shut. We are urged to live ” like men waiting”. Will you be ready when the Lord shall come? 

Second, as you go out today, I want you to know that God will always keep his promise. He is your Father and He will never lie to you. 

God is not like people. He tells no lies. He is not like humans. He doesn’t change his mind. When he says something, he does it. When he makes a promise, he keeps it. 

Numbers 23:19 GW 

You can count on the promise of God. It will come to pass. His Word is His bond. It is impossible for God to lie:

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: 

Hebrews 6:18 KJV

Do not let the situation derail you. 

Do not let the challenges derail you.

Do not let the promise of alternative comfort outside of God’s plan derail you. 

He can not lie to you!

There is love in sharing
