Psalm 105 Bible Study
1.God always keep his promise
God always remember his promise and fulfilled what he say although it may take a long time. We must be patient in waiting for God to fulfill his promise. In Numbers 23:19, God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? In 2 Corinthians 1:20, for all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. In 2 Timothy 2:13, If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. In Isaiah 55:11, so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. In Malachi 3:6, for I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
