Keep in mind that the LORD your God is [the only] God. He is a faithful God, who keeps his promise and is merciful to thousands of generations of those who love him and obey his commands. – Deuteronomy 7:9
Have you ever had someone make a promise to you, only for them to back on their word and break their promise down the road? It’s a horrible feeling to be on the other side of a broken promise. Trust is shattered. Faith is depleted. Disappointment is magnified. It’s an experience we don’t wish on our worst enemy.
But do you realize, if you are a follower of Jesus and you’ve surrendered your life to Him, you have someone in your corner who will never break His promises? That’s right. The Lord can always be trusted. He never goes back on His Word. He is faithful every single time.
You don’t have to worry about God being unable or unwilling to keep any promise. God doesn’t change His mind. He says what He means and means what He says. When He says He will do something, He will do it, and He will do it every single time.
There are going to be times when you find yourself in the middle of a dark and stormy night. You are going to be drowning in a sea of trouble. You are going to be facing waves so big you can’t see any way over them. At that moment, you remember these things. God has already promised He will fulfill His plan for you, He will achieve his purpose for you, and He will work everything out for your good.
These promises, as well as so many more, can be found all throughout the pages of Scripture. I would encourage you during your time with the Lord this week to intentionally search for God’s promises in His Word. Write them down in your journal. You can even Google a list of God’s promises and their corresponding verses if you’d like. However you find them, I hope you will read them, memorize them, and meditate on them, all the while remembering that God will never break a single one of those promises because He can always be trusted.
Dear Lord, thank you for your faithfulness. Thank you for being a trustworthy God. And thank you for always keeping your word. I pray that you would bring to my attention the promises in Scripture you want me to meditate on and that I would find hope, peace, and comfort in knowing you will always keep those promises to me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
