Blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45 (NIV)
When a friend breaks a promise it hurts our hearts. When we break a promise it hurts our hearts. In our humanness we make mistakes, but we have a faithful God who always keeps His promises.
God only makes promises that He intends to keep.
God promised Abraham his descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky (Genesis 26:4).
God promised Sarah that even in her old age she would have a child (Genesis 21:12).
God promised Tamar a new hope and future when she married into the tribe of Judah (Genesis 38:6).
God promised the Israelites freedom when He delivered them by the blood of the lamb (Exodus 12:23-25).
God promised Rahab a new story when she escaped by the scarlet cord (Joshua 2:24-25).
God promised you and God promised me redemption by the blood of the Lamb (Ephesians 1:7).
Yes, God sent His very own Son to die for each of our sins – yesterday, today, and tomorrow (Romans 8:1).
God promises a new story, a new hope, and a new future for those who chose to believe.
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12 (ESV)
God keeps His promises and His promises begin with one step – believe.
I praise You for who You are and what was done on the cross. Thank you for redeeming me from my sin yesterday, today, and tomorrow with the blood of Your precious Son. Redemption is for everyone through the gift of Your Son, and all we have to do is believe. May You continue to remind me that You keep Your promises. Today, may I walk confidently in my belief in You.
In Jesus’ Name I pray,
