God always reinforces and fulfils every promise He makes. In Exodus 3.21, He says, ‘I will give you favour in the eyes of the Egyptians; you will not leave empty handed.’ I find this one of the most amazing promises in all Scripture, because God commands the Israelites to go to their slave-masters and borrow all kinds of precious and valuable items. I believe there comes a time when God will give us – you and me – for the furtherance of the Gospel, the riches of the world. If we, as the righteous, are in obedience to the Lord, He will meet our every need. I remember in 1994 when God sent me to evangelise Siberia, I had no support, but He promised me the men, the money and the materials. Can I tell you; God met every need! Not only did we evangelise for three months there, but we went back the next year, and I’ve continued to return; and every time God is faithful to His promise and command. Our faith and confidence is not in men, but in Jesus: He is our way-maker and promise-keeper.
