We are living at a time when our words matter little. We can say one thing and a minute later say we never meant it. We are breaking the covenant of our words with will. One main attribute about God is his unchanging nature. What God promises, He does, and follows on His word to perform it. God attaches so much importannce to what we say and expects of us to take every word we give out there seriously. Jesus admonished his followers that by their words they shall be justified or condemned. We have little choice therefore as his followers and we need to attach more seriousness to what we say and to the words we speak out there. We are equal to our words and the words we say out there can hinder the very success of our prayer life. After all, if we cannot be faithful with little, we cannot be entrusted with much. David was doing an analysis of what it means to be a friend of God and came to the conclusion that to live with God, one must keep his word even when it hurts him. Such is a person who sleeps on the bed his makes and does not shy away from accountability. That is the person God honors. Do you keep your word even thou it’s not comfortable? Do you follow your word to do it? Are you disturbed by the pledges you give out there or you forget immediately you pledge? That could be the greatest hindrance to the success of your prayer life! Follow your word and honor your promises! Be a person of your words and the boomerang of honor will swing back to you making the words of the scriptures come alive to you. You can’t claim the promises if you can’t keep your promise! To live with fire, your substance need to be fire!
“LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;” Psalms 15:1, 4c NKJV
