Godís Promises Never Fail
ďNot one of all the Lordís good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.Ē1
We just celebrated Easter and remembered the amazing love God has for us, and how he gave us the gift of Salvation through Jesus. Something we could have never earned on our own. But Godís love, goodness, and generosity to us doesnít end there! When we confess our sins to him and receive his forgiveness, not only does he give us eternal life with him, but he gives us countless promises to give us hope and strength in all circumstances during our time here on earth.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be going over some of Godís promises to us that we find throughout scripture. Each of these promises has been a source of strength and encouragement during different seasons in my life, as I am sure they have been, and will be, for you. Just how God was with the people of Israel, and his mercy and faithfulness to them never ended, he is with us as well. Even when the people of Israel rebelled against him, God gave them opportunities to make things right and continue life with Him.
God is faithful and just. His desire is always going to be for us to be in relationship with him. When we choose to open our heart to him, we will experience the blessing that comes with each promise.
Suggested prayer: Dear God, it is easy to think of the people of Israel and criticize them for often drifting from you. But, Lord, if I am honest, I have done the same thing! Thank you for the great reminder that we have in Jesus of your love and mercy. Thank you for the gift of salvation. You are so amazing that in addition to that, you have given us promises of your great faithfulness in every situation we face. I open my heart and ask that you bring me closer to you as I learn more of your goodness and grace. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. In Jesusí name, amen.
