“Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.’”

In 1870, a bishop named Milton Wright heard a person prophesy that one day men may fly like birds. When this bishop heard that, he said, “That’s preposterous.” He said, “Flight is reserved for the angels, and I beg you not to repeat your statement lest you be guilty of blasphemy.” Thirty-three years later, Wilbur and Orville Wright, the sons of this bishop, made their wonderful flight at Kitty Hawk.
Thomas Watson, who was the chairman of IBM said in 1943, “I think that there’s a world market for maybe five computers.” Then in 1977, Ken Olsen, who was the president, chairman, and founder of Digital Equipment said, “There’s no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” Looking back on these statements today, they seem silly. Though the predictions of men are never certain, we can remember that God’s prophecies will always come to pass.
Take time today to thank God that His prophecies always come true and His promises never fail. Reflect on a specific promise of God that is dear to you.
