Promises

Promises

Promise means, “a declaration that something will or will not be done, given, etc., by one” (Dictionary.com). Isn’t it encouraging to be promised something wonderful? Being promised something pleasant (a trip to your favorite place, a book that just came out that you’ve been dying to read, etc.) often fills one with joy and hopefulness. Sadly, not all promises are fulfilled. Sometimes promises are broken, and that leaves one with a sad, discouraged heart.
But let me tell you about someone who never breaks His promises. God. He never breaks them. Isn’t that great? In today’s devotion, you’ll find just a few promise God made and came through on.

Bethlehem Ephrathah, you are too little to be among the family groups of Judah. But from you One will come who will rule for Me in Israel. His coming was planned long ago, from the beginning.

Micah 5:2

And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. He took with him Mary, to whom he was engaged, who was now expecting a child.

Luke 1:4-5

  • How do you see these two verse relate? Do you know God’s promise and His fulfillment?

Challenge

  • I’m challenging you to praise God for His wonderful promises. I invite you to find His promises in every day. “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he could change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” (Numbers 23:19)

Ideas:

Read your Bible. Search The Word for promises that God made and kept.
