“And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good.”
Genesis 32:12

When Jacob was on the other side of the brook Jabbok, and Esau was coming with armed men, he earnestly sought God’s protection, and as a master reason he pleaded, “And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good.” Oh, the force of that plea! He was holding God to his word—”Thou saidst.” The attribute of God’s faithfulness is a splendid horn of the altar to lay hold upon; but the promise, which has in it the attribute and something more, is a yet mightier holdfast—”Thou saidst, I will surely do thee good.” And has he said, and shall he not do it? “Let God be true, and every man a liar.” Shall not he be true? Shall he not keep his word? Shall not every word that cometh out of his lips stand fast and be fulfilled? Solomon, at the opening of the temple, used this same mighty plea. He pleaded with God to remember the word which he had spoken to his father David, and to bless that place. When a man gives a promissory note, his honour is engaged; he signs his hand, and he must discharge it when the due time comes, or else he loses credit. It shall never be said that God dishonours his bills. The credit of the Most High never was impeached, and never shall be. He is punctual to the moment: he never is before his time, but he never is behind it. Search God’s word through, and compare it with the experience of God’s people, and you shall find the two tally from the first to the last. Many a hoary patriarch has said with Joshua, “Not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass.” If you have a divine promise, you need not plead it with an “if,” you may urge it with certainty. The Lord meant to fulfil the promise, or he would not have given it. God does not give his words merely to quiet us, and to keep us hopeful for awhile with the intention of putting us off at last; but when he speaks, it is because he means to do as he has said.

  1. This says that lord god mighty jesus christ is always with us. whenever you pray by his name or whenever you need his help and whatever you can ask he always be with us and keeps his protection around us and by praying in the name of gods word it can be surely fulfilled, as soloman did it and whenever we make promise to the god we shoud do it at correct time we should not put it in pending. so that we don’t loose credit infront of lord god because god loves punctuality ,then lord jesus fulfil the promise if anyone urge with him he cannot fulfil the promise because god does not give his words to make us quite, he is putting us hopeful and he is controlling our intentions of putting us at last, but when he speaks he mean to do as he said, whenever you pray, whatever you ask in the name of lord jesus christ the lord god always gives the best,always hear and answer the prayer,and we pray by the name of lord jesus at any difficult situation the lord jesus is always with us like the commander of the army,so whatever we do,whatever we make, whatever we start, whenever you talk, whenever you think always put the lord god first then you will definitely have the winnings in the holy name of lord jesus christ, This i say in the presious name of lord jesus christ Amen!
