Promises . . .

The Lord will keep his promises.
With love he takes care
of all he has made.
Psalm 145:13





Think about just a few of the promises God has given you. He's promised to love you, forgive you, fight for you, comfort you, answer your prayers according to His plan, and spend eternity with you, to name just a few.
God has never made a promise that He could not or would not keep. That means you can trust Him with your deepest secrets, biggest dreams, and greatest fear. You can take Him at His Word and move forward in the direction He's asked you to go with total confidence.
Even when it's difficult to see God at work in you circumstances, His faithfulness is your assurance that He's not only active and involved, but He's using the situation to bring good into your life.
In God's faithfulness
lies eternal security.

I loved your post. We all need to focus on god's word. And pray for our country.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9-10 NIV

What a comfort to know that our God never breaks His promises; never goes back on His Word; cannot lie!
Now that's someone that has my trust!

Thanks for reminding us today of His never failing promises!
