Trust God to Keep His Promises
“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.”1
Every year at Summer Camp, each cabin was required to go through a Ropes Course, a series of obstacles meant for teambuilding and trust. Ten girls approached the challenges with caution, some obstacles easy and others quite difficult. The last feat to conquer was the dreaded Trust Fall. Here one girl climbed a 4-to-5-foot post and stood straight with her back turned toward her cabinmates waiting below, with arms intertwined, ready to catch her. The girl atop the post was to let herself fall back and trust her mates to catch her mid-fall. Trusting in others is not something that comes naturally to human nature.
Throughout this series, we have seen that God's promises are true and he is never failing. We have learned that we can trust in God to be our provider, our planner, and our caretaker. Trusting in God is not always easy. It is hard to trust what we cannot see. As the girl stands atop the post with her back turned to her friends, she cannot see them. This makes it all the more difficult to let herself fall while not being able to see where she will land. Our faith allows us to trust God without seeing him. He has proved himself trustworthy over and over again. Hebrews tells us to hold tight without wavering to the hope that is God himself. We are encouraged to trust that God will keep His promises to us. Ask God to help you trust him today. Allow Him to prove Himself mighty to you as our God and Creator.
Dear God, you have been so good to me in keeping your promises to guide and protect me. I ask that you draw me close to you and grant me the desire to seek your will in all I do. Thank you for your mercy and your love. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
