Ever made a promise that you didn’t keep? You meant it when you said it but either just forgot or things got away from you and you didn’t do it? We sometimes do that as parents – we tell our 3-year-old – “I will take you to the park…” then we forget – but they don’t. Sometimes we do that to God – promise Him something, but things change, we get out of the bind – and we forget.
The good news is – God NEVER forgets a promise! He always comes through. Verse 6 says:
The LORD’s promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over.
What are some of the things God has promised you?
