THE PROMISES OF GOD: Do they really work?

The Word of God is full of promises that stand the test of time and never fail. If they are not working in our lives, then the fault does not lie with God or His word. For His word is truth and does not lie.

If the promises are not being fulfilled in your life, then you need to examine yourself and try and pinpoint where you have fallen short.

In this video David Odunaiya shares with you the story of Abraham and how he failed almost fell short of God’s promise to him.

 Scriptures mentioned in the video:


The bible is the word of God in a written form, but the ultimate desire is for His word to reside in our heart, so that our mouth can speak His word ceaselessly at all times no matter what is going on in our lives.

Isaiah 59:21
“As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.


Extract From Chapter One

It is quite interesting that a woman whose testimony has touched a lot of lives in the body of Christ today, does not have her name mentioned in scriptures. The above verse says, “a certain woman”.  When you go through the Hall of Fame as recorded in Hebrews 11, which gives us a catalogue of great men in the bible who had done great exploits through their faith in God, you will discover that certain names of bible heroes such as  Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah and Moses were all mentioned not to say the least.

However, here we are looking at the story of a woman who taught us a great deal about the workings of  faith, than most of the  believers mentioned in the bible. This goes a long way to tells us that the grace and the mercies of God are not influenced by a man’s name or reputation. Apostle Peter also realized this in the book of Acts 10:34, when he said, “Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

The fact people do not know you by name, or you are not as highly educated as many of your peers or friends should not stop you from receiving a miracle touch from God. He focuses more on what is in our heart rather than what we have achieved in life. God did not reward this woman’s status, He rewarded her faith. No one gave this woman a second glance when she went in search of Jesus, but that did not stop her from encountering the miraculous. No man will ever get any blessing from God based on his social or political status in the society. God’s grace is impartial and just. It response to faith and not to your reputation or status in life.
