Higher Every Day – Be Trustworthy – Pastor W. F. Kumuyi.
“And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I doFor I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him” (Genesis 18:17, 19a).
An influential American evangelist was once given an invitation by an American president to visit him in his residence. On getting there, the president told him that what they were going to discuss was confidential, the evangelist accepted. He then told him to show him how he could get right with God and have eternal life. The evangelist explained the issue properly to him and then prayed with him. As the evangelist got out, the press men came to him asking about what he discussed with the president. He told them and the newspapers reported it. The evangelist regretted his action but the president never communicated with him again till he died. God trusted Abraham as seen in our text above. As a child of God, can you be trusted with confidential matters? Have you broken someone’s trust or has someone broken yours before? It can be painful. Peter promised the Lord Jesus never to deny Him even if he had to die for it, but he broke it. Let your yea be yea, and your nay, nay.
