The One Year Devotional Prayer Book, Vol. II
By Johnny Hunt
God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. –Hebrews 6:17, 18
I have three precious grandsons, and I always love it when they are around me. I wantto pour only good things into their lives. When they want me, I am there, no questionsasked. If they need something, I want to give them the most and best that I can.They love their Poppa, and they know their Poppa loves them. They never have to wonderhow much I love them, because I show them every chance I get.
When God does something on our behalf, He doesn’t just do the minimum required. He goes exceedingly, abundantly above and beyond what we can imagine. I have heard it said that just one sacrificial drop of Jesus’ blood would have been enough to pay the full price for every sin ever committed. God made sure that we saw the extent of His love for us. He was determined to show more abundantly His covenant with us through His unchanging Word. He also confirmed that covenant by an oath that involved the sacrifice of His only Son, Jesus. Because of these “two immutable things,” we can know without a doubt that God loves us with an everlasting love and, as we run to Him for refuge, we can confidently lay hold of the hope set before us.
