“But afterward, they changed their minds; they made the male and female slaves, whom they had freed, return; and they brought them back into subjection as slaves.”
Jeremiah 34:11 CJB
Here we see the Hebrew people make a promise to the LORD and then break it, by putting the freed slaves back into slavery their own people! How often do we make a promise to the LORD and then break it! How often do we put our brothers and sisters in bondage by what we say and do?
“Peter said to Him, Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You! And so said all the disciples.” Matthew 26:35
We know what happens next Jesus goes and prays the soldiers come and the disciples run! What I hope we can take from this today is; before we make statements or promises lets pray! As we are praying, let us also wait for an answer from the LORD! His will be done!
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9
Today let us be careful of making promises, instead let us stand firm in His promises. WHY? Because He keeps them, you and I not so much! Have a blessed day praying and waiting on the LORD!
