“…that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie…” (Hebrews 6:18).


Dear Christian: Have you ever had someone break their promise to you?  Maybe you have broken a promise you made to someone?  Sadly, the words “I promise” have become little more than a catchphrase meant to prove someone’s sincerity.  Breaking promises is taken very lightly in our society.  However, there is One who has never, will never, and can never break a promise — God.  Whenever God promises something you can be absolutely sure that it will come to pass.  Notice the promise He made to Noah: “Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth” (Gen. 9:11).  God promised Noah that He would never again use a flood to destroy the whole earth.  Has God kept that promise?  Absolutely!  Remember the rainbow!  Look at some other promises God has made throughout Scripture:


“I will never leave nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

“I will strengthen and help you.” (Isaiah 41:10)

“Nothing will separate you from My love.” (Rom. 8:39)

“I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

“I will forgive you.” (1 John 1:9)

“I will bless you.” (Psalm 84:11)
“I am with you always.” (Matthew 28:20)

“I will guide you.” (Psalm 25:9)

“I will be with you.” (Isa. 43:2)

“I will keep you.” (Isa. 42:6)
“I will work all to your good.” (Romans 8:28)

I will save you from afar.” (Jer. 46:27)

“I will deliver you.” (Psalm 50:15)



God’s promises are found in every book, chapter, and verse of His Word.  As a Christian, God has promised to provide for you, protect you, be near you, forgive you, cleanse you, save you, bless you, instruct you, etc.  He loves every believer as He loves His own dear Son, Jesus Christ.  Therefore, He promises to work all things together for good to His people through His infinite plan (Romans 8:28).


But how often do we forget God’s promises?  How often, in the midst of trouble, do we worry, fear, and wander from God?  Never forget, dear believer, that God is sovereign; He has everything under His control.  Have you forgotten God’s promises?  Take time today to reflect on God’s promises in Scripture and apply them to your life and live with the knowledge that your Heavenly Father is constantly watching over you.  “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry” (Psalm 34:15).
