promise

 

We’re living in a time where a person’s word holds little value unless it’s backed by collateral called actions. If you don’t have actions to back your words, your words mean nothing. But, God’s Word, on the other hand, can be trusted. You can take His Word to the bank, because He makes good on His promises.

For example, there was God’s promise to Abraham. Since there was no one greater to swear by, God took an oath in his own name, saying: “I will certainly bless you, and I will multiply your descendants beyond number.” Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised. Now when people take an oath, they call on someone greater than themselves to hold them to it. And without any question that oath is binding. God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his mind. So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 6:13-20 NLT)

This scripture always encourages me, because there are promises that I’ve been holding on to for quite some time and reading this assures me that God has not changed His mind and He has not forgotten. My job, like Abraham, is to wait patiently. When you wait “patiently,” it means you maintain a constant calmness. You don’t worry when it doesn’t happen according to your schedule; you remain calm because you trust God’s Word. His Word is the hope that’s a trustworthy anchor for our mind, will and emotions (i.e. your soul), so it’s important to stay in God’s Word while waiting on a promise to come to fruition. And, every promise will come to past because God keeps His promises. **G.I.G.**
