Promises, Promises

Not one of the good promises which the Lord had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass. – Joshua 21:45

Do you keep all your promises? If not, why not?

Perhaps the situation changed, you promised more than you could keep, or some other event intervened that was beyond your control. There are many circumstances that can cause us to fail to keep the promises we make and, yes, we sometimes fail.

On the other hand, God never fails! He always keeps His promises, be it a promise to bless or a promise to punish.  According to Scripture, God has promised many things to those who love Him and even if the situation or circumstances change, even if the promise seems to be beyond anyone’s ability to fulfill, even if all the basic earthly material elements themselves should disappear …

… the promises of God, every single one, will remain.

Grow in the root of all grace, which is faith. Believe God’s promises more firmly than ever. Allow your faith to increase in its fullness, firmness, and simplicity. – Charles Spurgeon
