Key Text: “For from the rising of the sun, even to its going down, My name shall be great among the Gentiles; In every place incense shall be offered to My name, And a pure offering; For My name shall be great among the nations,’ Says the Lord of hosts” (Mal.1:11).
Let us bear in mind that God does not make empty promises. He will certainly fulfill his promise. Num.23:19 says, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”
God specifically told Jeremiah: “I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled. (Jer.1:11-12 NIV). And that is why Paul boldly declared to the Philippians: ‘Being confident of this very thing that He who began a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ’ (Phil.1:6). Faith is agreement with the word of God. God does not lie, so faith does not lie. Prayer takes a stand in faith. The word spoken by God concerning your life will be performed in Jesus’ name.
