His Promises Are True

September 18th, 2010


Genesis 4:17-26

Boastfully, Geneva spoke about an upcoming trip to a village where no missionary had visited. She felt proud of her language knowledge and had confidence she would do well. However, while sharing God’s Word, she swallowed a gnat and began coughing uncontrollably. Embarrassed and unable to remember any siSwati, she sat down on a nearby rock, leaving her friend to end the worship service.

Lamech bragged to his wives that he had killed a man. He made a mockery of God’s promise to protect Cain, saying that if Cain’s revenge was sevenfold, then Lamech’s revenge will be 77 times.

God’s promises are given anew to each generation, but He gives guidelines on how they can be used. Geneva was preoccupied with making a name for herself while doing ministry, but God required her to worship Him in spirit and in truth. His promise to be with her was true only as she humbled herself and placed her confidence solely in Him.

    I am glad for the RG splash. I am used to the printed version. Where is the author of today’s piece. It used to have missionary names and places to be in prayer for. And I loved the song blurbs as well as quote of the day. Perhaps it is behind some spot I must click on. Let me know.

    I enjoy the readings but like Greg Freed I miss the names & place to be in prayer for. Can’t we have those back?
