Here’s what I tell people: When you have a divine promise, from GOD you have a sure thing. Why? The credit of the Most High could never be impeached. He is punctual to the second. The LORD meant to fulfill HIS promise or He would not have given it. When He speaks, it is because He means to do as He has said.”

  • God watches over His word to fulfill it (Jeremiah 1:12)
  • No word from God will ever fail (Luke 1:37)
