What I have said, that will I bring about;
what I have planned, that will I do.
Peter’s goose was cooked. His execution was set for tomorrow. But tonight he was sawing logs in his cell (Acts 11:1–6). How could he do that? Well, he knew he wasn’t going to die tomorrow because Jesus had told him that he would be old when he died (Jn 21:18–19). The Lord said it—so Peter considered it as good as done.
Paul was on a sea voyage so turbulent that his 275 shipmates gave up all hope of survival (Acts 27:20). Through it all, Paul remained calm. How could he do that? Well, the Lord had told him he was going to testify in Rome (Acts 23:11). The Lord said it—so Paul considered it as good as done.
Bible promises! When the Lord says it, consider it as good as done.
What God says will happen
