Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. (Romans 4:20-21 NLT)
It is a wise person who thinks carefully before making promises. It is easy to get caught up in the emotion of a situation and make frivolous promises that are later forgotten and left unfilled. That happened to me one time, and I seriously regretted the decision. It almost cost me a relationship with my grandson.
Aren't you glad that we worship a God who makes and keeps his promises? Jesus promised his disciples that after his death, he would rise again -- and he did. He also promised that he would come back again -- and he will.
The world today is full of trouble, but that light at the end of the tunnel isn't a train coming -- it's the promised Messiah returning to set up his kingdom. An added plus is the fact that all the saints will be coming with him riding on white horses. (Revelation 19:14)
Early in our marriage our family had a promise box on the table. At mealtime the children would pull a Scriptural promise out and read it aloud. All of us need a promise box to remind us of God's infallible word.
