God always keeps His promises. Therefore when we don’t receive what He has promised, it is not because of Him, because He is faithful, it is because of us. But, are we faithful to Him? Do we diligently seek Him? Do we love Him with all our hearts? Does He occupy first place in our lives?
All of God’s promises to us are based on righteousness and holiness. Every successful king, prophet or people of old displays the results of God’s promises as a result of obedience to His word. Why should God be faithful to us if we are not faithful to Him? Yet, this is how the mercy of God is seen; because He is merciful towards us. In 1 Kings 8:31, Solomon’s prayer was that God would hear in heaven and act by judging His servants, condemning the wicked and guilty and justifying the righteous by giving him according to his righteousness. Solomon magnified, glorified, praised and thanked God when he prayed. He stretched and lifted up his hand in acknowledgement to God, our heavenly Father, and said, “Lord God of Israel, there is no God in heaven above or on earth below like You, who keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts.” One of the most important things in life is to recognize and admit who God is. Before you make your request or petition known, it’s important that you know who and where your supplications and prayers are going to. Hopefully, they are going to the God who made the heavens, earth and everything in it and not to the god of this world who is defeated.
In the times of the Bible, the Ark was a sign that God’s presence was with His people. This increased their faith, hope, trust and confidence in God. However, today we are sealed with the Holy Spirit who resides in us (Ephesians 1:13-14). All we have to do is exercise our power, authority and use the keys that Jesus gives us to unlock any door needed to release our faith, hope, trust, belief and confidence in God and His promises. Solomon demonstrates to us that prayer and obedience will allow God to move on our behalf.
