How many times you've kept a promise?
How many times you've broken a promise?
To make a promise is to make a commitment to either do something, or not do something. Promises are made at certain points in our lives, some being more important than others. As children we maybe promised our parents to keep our room tidy, or to help out around the house. As adults we maybe have made more serious promises in some of our relationship i.e. marriage or business. People will sometimes judge our character and integrity based on whether or not we keep our promises. In my experience promises are easier broken than kept, both promises I've made, and sometimes promises people have made to me. Sometimes we maybe need to think before we speak when it comes to making promises, especially when it involves making promises to our children that deep-down we know we may have trouble keeping!
Promises of God..
How about you? Has God promised you something and you're waiting for it to come to pass? Maybe you're struggling because although God has promised something, it seems like God has now gone silent and there seems no fulfilment of that promise in sight. Don't be discouraged - if God has promised you good things he will fulfil his promise! Stand firm, and stand strong, and be patient! The bible says that God will 'never leave you, nor forsake you' (Heb 13:5) I believe that's one of the greatest promises God makes to us!
