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;
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Scriptures where the word “promise” appears:
2 Corinthians 1:20
2 Corinthians 7:1
