Promises, Promises

Promises, Promises

Not a single one of all the good promises the Lord had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true. – Joshua 21:45 NLT

Promises are the seedbed of hope. When someone makes a promise, we begin to have expectations in a future. We visualize what will be based upon that promise. Unfortunately, most of us has experiences enough broken promises to make us cynical. Instead of dreaming about fulfilled promises, we take a “Wait and see” approach.

But God has shown over and over that He is not just a promise-maker, He is a promise keeper. We can trust that there is no difference between God’s promise and future outcome. What God says will happen does happen.

Really, that’s what faith is: knowing God’s promises and living as if they are going to come true. When God fulfills a promise, we say He has been faithful–In essence, He has made our faith full.

“I will sing of the Lord’s unfailing love forever! Young and old will hear of your faithfulness” (Psalms‬ ‭89:1‬).

When God fulfills a promise in your life, sing about it, tell someone about it. Tell of His faithfulness. The more you do, the more confident you will be in God as a promise-keeper.
