“But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.”

Jonah 2:9

We are familiar with the countenance of the people even ourselves whenever we are promised a gift but experience an outcome of disappointment. Just as we develop a dull countenance when someone fails to meet up to their promises to us, God is not pleased whenever we make a vow and do not fulfill it. Imagine a friend making a promise to you and failing to fulfill it over again. Whenever such a friend makes promises, we tend to ignore them because we have lost hope in their unfulfilled promises to us.

What have we vowed unto God and didn’t fulfill? Do we want God to lose hope in you? I suppose that the answer is “NO”. Today’s Scripture encourages us to fulfill our vows unto the Lord just like Hannah, Abraham, David, and other Biblical examples who were committed to honoring God with their vows. We should be committed to fulfilling our vows to God because it spurs Him to bless us abundantly even beyond our expectations.

May the Lord help us to honor him by fulfilling our vows in Jesus’ name. Amen

Further study: Nahum 1:15

Charge: A promise is a debt; don’t owe God your vows. Pay up!

Stay blessed.

  1. Amen.

    It is better not to make a vow without fulfilling it.
    May I not dishonour God in that regard.
    Thank you.
