God makes us a spectacular promise when He says that all His promises prove true (see Psalm 18:30, Romans 3:4, and 2 Samuel 22:31). This isn't a promise made only to the Israelites, or one that is found only in the Old Testament. It is a promise that encompasses all of the Bible and all believers, and as such it is one we can take the spiritual bank to cash with full expectation that it will "clear"!
Yes, I realize that in essence I'm claiming that God promises that His promises will prove true. And I get that you may think that's an odd concept, or maybe that I'm talking in circles or have put my thought processes in a blender and what came out what this blog post. But I really do believe that God's amazing promise to us that each and every one of His promises is true and can be counted on is one of the most important spiritual truths we can grasp.
Think of a verse you consider dear to your heart ~ maybe you have prayed it over your children daily, or perhaps you have laid claim to a specific portion of God's Word in regard to your marriage. How have you seen God answer those prayers? How has He acted on your behalf in response to the promises you believed from His Word?
Are there other promises in the Bible that you avoid because you're afraid they might not apply to you? Or because they seem too big to believe in light of present circumstances? You don't see any light at the end of the tunnel (maybe you feel trapped in that tunnel!) and there doesn't seem to be any point in pestering the God of the universe about your troubles.
I'll say it again because it's worth repeating: ALL God's promises prove true, and His answer is Yes and Amen through Christ Jesus our Lord! How would your daily life change if you really believed that, with every fiber of your being?
When the road gets rocky, why not try out some of His promises rather than worry and fret (and remember, the Bible says not to fret as it only leads to evil in Psalm 37:8) and see what happens? I am certain you'll be pleasantly surprised by the wonderful result that comes from trusting that all God's promises to you will prove absolutely true.
And if you have trusted Him and seen that He is faithful to His Word and always acts in loving kindness toward His children, leave a comment and share what great things He has done for you! I'd love to hear about His good will toward you and His care over your concerns, and it is always wonderful to recount the great things He has done for us.
Be encouraged today as you choose to take God at His Word and believe in faith that He has good plans for you and your family!
Day 123 done :)
