Every one of us, at one point or another, has been let down, either by the words of others or at our very own. Whether it was a commitment that didn’t pan out or a New Years resolution, a declaration, or a promise that was tossed out carelessly without substantial forethought or follow through. After all, we are human, we have faults and promise keeping is one of them were most of us have faced a challenge in making or receiving.

If we BUT only realize that God knows this about us; He knows our faults, weaknesses and inability to be consistent. In fact, many are predisposed to being lied to because they themselves have not the spirit of Truth dwelling within. Isn’t it obvious when dealing with someone who tries to sell you on “their lie” when the truth is so apparent to everyone else, except for them! In many instances they truly believe the lies they have absorbed and concocted, worse yet is they expect everyone else to as well.

Truth is, in the end days, many will become intoxicated with self serving lies, they will accept lies and even construct them. It will be the only way their existence is conducted because it will facilitate their inequities. One thing they do not take into account is that God knows and sees all! One day their own words will be the very thing that witness’ against them.

On the other side of this spectrum is the inability for God to not keep His word. This should be a great source of encouragement and comfort to you.

The word promise itself occurs 13 times in the King James Version of the Bible. (see versus below)
AND There are roughly over 7,487 promises made by God to man in the Bible.

I will share with you just a few of my favorites;

Proverbs 3:5-7

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

Philippians 4:6-7

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Psalms 50:15

And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 

 Luke 11:9-13

And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? 
Deuteronomy 28:12
The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
Isaiah 65:24
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
Jeremiah 33:3

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
