  • God Keeps Promises

    Posted on June 21, 2012 by Family Christian

    “And now, Lord God, keep forever the promise you have made and do as you promised.” 2 Samuel 7:25

     

    The Lord keeps His promises—He never has and He never will break a promise. He promises to forgive, so He forgives liberally. He promises to give grace in time of need, so He gives abundantly. He promises to love, so He loves lavishly. He promises Satan’s defeat, pain and joy in childbirth, laborious labor, safety, danger, His presence, heaven, hell, judgment, rewards, wisdom, foolishness for fools, and a Savior, Jesus Christ.

    God’s promises concerning Christ are profound: born to a virgin woman, from the line of Jacob, inherits David’s throne, Spirit-filled, and the righteous King with a forerunner. He will be rejected, bear our sins and die like a criminal. He will be born in Bethlehem, be appointed to preach, and be full of unfailing love and faithfulness. He is God’s good news, bringing resurrection, new life and the fulfillment of all God’s promises.

    “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” 2 Corinthians 1:20

    Because the Lord keeps His promises you can rest in His righteous word. The word of a man or woman can be uncertain, but Christ brings you calm with His certainty. Since His character is consistent, He is dependable. Therefore, study diligently the pages of Scripture and harvest the fresh and delicious produce of the Lord’s promises. His truths are a treasure you can count on during down times and guard you in up times.

    Above all, latch onto God’s promise of a Savior in His son Jesus. He came to save the world yes, but remarkably He came to save you. He saves you from the penalty of sin and He saves you from yourself. He saves you from unwise decisions, unhealthy relationships and unrestricted areas of bad influence. He saves you from financial fiascoes, an unfaithful fiancé and an unforgiving attitude. Salvation begins at conversion and continues in Christ. Jesus saves you for His glory and for His purposes. He promises you, so trust in His word.

    “From the descendants of David, according to promise, God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus.” Acts 13:23 (NASB)

    Prayer: Thank you Jesus for your precious and unfailing promises to me!
