Stewards of His Promise

“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

– Genesis 12:2,3

Did you know that Abraham was 70 years old at the time he first appeared in the Bible? And yet God chose to give a promise to this 70-year-old man that he would be the father of a great nation, and that everyone on earth would be blessed through him. Even more unbelievable is the fact that it took another 30 years for the Lord to fulfill the promise. That means Abraham was 100 years old by the time he finally had Isaac! I honestly can’t imagine what it was like for him with each passing birthday as he wondered if this would be the year he would finally see the covenant fulfilled. Nevertheless, he kept believing and the Bible says that his faith was credited to him as righteousness. 

God is not hurried or worried, my friend, and all of His promises to you are “yes and amen,” even when you don’t see evidence of their fulfillment. Nothing is beyond His ability to repair, restore, or bring to pass, because He who promised is faithful! He is working in the in-between to strengthen, equip, and prepare you for your Promised Land so that when it dawns, you can embrace it with confidence, humility, and strength of character. Never give up on your loving Lord because He will never give up on you; He has gone before you to straighten the path, level the mountains, and make a way through the wilderness. Hold fast because your best is yet to come! 


Thank you, Jesus, for making me a steward of your promise, no matter how long it takes to see its fulfillment.

  2. Send us a preacher! Royal Palm Presbyterian (Independent -but not anti denominational) in Lake Worth, Florida is looking and waiting for our next pastor. Surrounded by contemporary “Jesus Shows” we are traditional (but not boring). I’m going to be 86 and my wife and I are ready to hand over this congregation to a solid, reformed, happy, possibility-thinking couple and continue to grow it.
    If you know of anyone, they can see us live stream and go from there to make contact.

  4. Thank You LORD first and foremost for this wonderful gift of life! Thank You also for the ministry of Hour of Power that has helped me and my family in so many ways. Whenever adversity comes, The Lord is there and the Schuller’s words have helped with guidance and wisdom! My grandmother listened to your grandfather and “GOD loves you and so do I” became a staple for us! Thank you for being faithful stewards in the ministry of JESUS!

  5. We love your readings every morning. We do belong and support the Presbyterian Church in Fergus Ontario.
