Have you ever encountered an unfulfilled promise? I assuredly have.
One of the worst broken promises I’ve experienced was this; “Your job is secure,” I was told, “as is everyone else’s in your department. You’re all completely safe!” In the grand scheme of things, this managerial promise to me and my co-workers was huge because at the time, people were being let go all over the building I worked in.
I came home that day and assured my wife that we’d be okay. A few months later, the hammer fell! Suddenly unemployment for me and twenty other dumbstruck colleagues became our reality. Bottom line is this. Promises made by man are often defective, untrustworthy and can easily be broken. Let’s face it, talk is often cheap.
What’s your broken promise? Or perhaps for you it’s entirely fitting to pluralize that word? Conversely, have you ever made a promise to someone and been unable to keep it? I believe we all have.
As human beings, we are broken, sinful and often times incapable of promise keeping behavior. We mean well, companies mean well, a friend or family member means well. But let’s face it, worldly promises can and will be broken.
But did you know that when you place your faith in Jesus Christ, he will never break his promises? God will never backtrack. His promises are one hundred percent dependable.
The Apostle Paul wrote this, “For Jesus Christ, the Son of God, does not waver between ‘Yes’ and ‘No’. He is the one whom Silas, Timothy and I preached to you, and as God’s ultimate ‘Yes,’ he always does what he says. For all God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding ‘Yes’ And through Christ, our ‘Amen’ (which means ‘Yes’) ascends to God for his glory.” (2 Corinthians 1:19, 20 NLT)
Let the trumpets of kept promises sound out!
My friend, God will never tell us one thing, and go against his word. Okay, time for questions! Do you crave honesty and unchanging heavenly promises? Do you want your life to stand on every promise God makes? Do you want to trust in every word God says and see it all come to pass in Jesus name? Do you?
I personally want to claim every promise God makes! If you are dis-heartened with the broken promises of man, then let’s rejoice in but a few of God’s fail-safe promises to us.
- God is Always with Me. I WILL NOT FEAR!
- God is Always in Control. I WILL NOT DOUBT!
- God is Always Good. I WILL NOT DESPAIR!
- God is Always Watching. I WILL NOT FAULTER!
God will protect you and be your strength. He will provide for you, give you peace and will always, always, love you! And best of all, he will save you if you invite him into your heart! We invite you to visit the Savior’s Call. Also, please pray with me…
Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive me. Come into my life and heart. I receive you as my Lord and Savior. Now, help me to live for you the rest of my life, and for me to trust in your promises. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
