When we make a promise to the Lord let us not delay in fulfilling it. God knows our hearts, deeds and minds. He exalts the humble and bring down the prideful. He knows whose hands are building for His Glory and he knows all who give lip service. May the God of mercy and grace accept our prayers bless our service and anoint us to continue in His works.
Glory to God Always,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
Nehemiah 5:10-13 NKJV
“I also, with my brethren and my servants, am lending them money and grain. Please, let us stop this usury! Restore now to them, even this day, their lands, their vineyards, their olive groves, and their houses, also a hundredth of the money and the grain, the new wine and the oil, that you have charged them.” So they said, “We will restore it, and will require nothing from them; we will do as you say.” Then I called the priests, and required an oath from them that they would do according to this promise. Then I shook out the fold of my garment and said, “So may God shake out each man from his house, and from his property, who does not perform this promise. Even thus may he be shaken out and emptied.” And all the assembly said, “Amen!” and praised the LORD. Then the people did according to this promise.”
