Resting In Your Promises

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23 (ESV)

Gotta love a bargain, right? Yes, us girls want that discount. We love doorbusters, Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday. In person or online, we don’t want to miss out on the best deals. Probably the reason I rose at 4 am the day after a busy Thanksgiving. Eyes partially open, I joined my sister for one of those get in the line really early, get a special coupon and shop, shop , shop until you drop days.

Despite the chill in the air and the wait, we were excited to finally step inside the warm store and uncover our special coupon. A squeal from my sister’s lips revealed I received one of the top coupons. Like Santa on his sleigh, we dashed through the store gathering all our bargains. Our bags filled; I stepped up to the counter with a big smile gracing my face as I handed the clerk my coupon. Wow, did that smile ever fade so fast. The perceived grand coupon couldn’t be used on anything in my bag. After numerous attempts to redeem what had been given to me, we left the store disillusioned, disappointed, frustrated and yes angry.

Perhaps, you dear friend have experienced those same emotions over unfulfilled promises and misplaced truths. Ever so easy in our world to take truth at its face value, but you and I both know that’s a dangerous place to land. Empty words will always leave us doubting and longing for just an ounce of truth.

Promise keepers are few and far between, but I know of One who has never failed to deliver.  His words are faithful and true. He can be trusted. He is the only One who never leaves us disappointed, frustrated or disillusioned. When sin entered our world, He crafted the most perfect promise of redemption through His only Son.

Who is this Promise Keeper – our amazing God!!!

Before Jesus was born more than 300 prophecies were recorded in God’s word proclaiming Jesus’ birth, life, journey to the cross and His resurrection. Specific promises to His people outlined through the pages of His word. Absolute truths we can cling to. Promises we can count on. Declarations strategically placed in historical accounts leading up to Jesus’ birth. Revealed at precisely the right time – divinely orchestrated by our Heavenly Father.

Don’t know about you, but we desperately need truth in this world of misplaced promises. We need a  sure place to stand. We want a Promise Keeper who will do what He says He will do.

Sweet friends, we can trust God’s amazing redemption story unveiled from Genesis to Revelation – every promise in His word has been fulfilled or will be fulfilled for all eternity. No doubts – just complete trustworthiness from our faithful God – who could ask for more?

“Father, You are the perfect Promise Keeper. We can rest in your words and cling to Your promises.”

For His Glory
