KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 11:42 KJV “And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.”

The Lord Jesus prayed unto the Father, by saying, “I know that you always hear me, but because of these ones, I said it that they would believe.” This statement implies, if it had not been for these people He would have spoken straight to the dead man, to rise from the dead and indeed, he would have risen. Jesus knew the Father was with Him always. He knew He had been given authority over all flesh. John 17:2 KJV” As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.”

Jesus knew what the Father had told Him, and He lived according to what the Father said to him. On a number of occasions, He healed multitudes without saying a prayer to the Father. He knew the Father was always with Him.

He had taken the Father at His word. The scriptures are full of countless promises. Every promise has God’s full barking. He said in Jeremiah 1: 12 that “Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.” This word hasten is also translated ‘to watch over His word to bring it to pass’. Today we have countless promises of God in His word to us. Like our master Jesus, we must believe them and act on them. We would see the same results and make the same impact as the Lord did.

Remember also what the scriptures said in Hebrews 13:8.He said Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. This statement was a follow up to what He said in the preceding verse, Heb 13:7 KJV” Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation”. Here we are being advised to stay faithful to God’s word because we have the example and the results of the faith of many who preached God’s word to us .Since Jesus was faithful to them He would be also faithful to us for He is ever the same, and does not change. Glory be to God.


Glory be to God, for His faithfulness, unto all generations. I fully trust my life on the unfailing word of God. My heart is always at rest as I depend on the word of God. God has always honoured His word in my life. Thank you, Jesus.


Psa 119:89, 90 KJV LAMED.” For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.”

Heb 10:23 KJV ” Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) “
