Not one single promise has failed.
How powerful those words are to us. His word is filled to the brim with promises and not one has failed. How silly and shallow I am to even attempt to walk in doubt and fear.
I have a promise of hope and a future, a promise of life and life more abundant. The ups and the downs they are part of the promise. He promises He will hold my hand, he will direct my path, he will give wisdom without resentment….not one single promise has failed.
Keeping His promises shows us that God is in a good mood. He is good to us all the time. We can count on it.
As you can see, I’m about to go the way we all end up going. Know this with all your heart, with everything in you, that not one detail has failed of all the good things God, your God, promised you. It has all happened. Nothing’s left undone—not so much as a word. Joshua 23:14
The promises of God reveal his particular and eternal purposes to which he is unchangeably committed and upon which believers can totally depend.
Are God’s promises irrevocable? Is God absolutely trustworthy?
God is so very good to all of us. We can count on him. God is faithful and trustworthy. Do we believe it with all our heart? Do we believe it with everything in us?
- Numbers 23:19 (CSB) — 19 God is not a man, that he might lie, or a son of man, that he might change his mind. Does he speak and not act, or promise and not fulfill?
- Titus 1:2 (CSB) — 2 in the hope of eternal life that God, who cannot lie, promised before time began.
- Hebrews 6:13–18 (CSB) — 13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater to swear by, he swore by himself: 14 I will indeed bless you, and I will greatly multiply you. 15 And so, after waiting patiently, Abraham obtained the promise. 16 For people swear by something greater than themselves, and for them a confirming oath ends every dispute. 17 Because God wanted to show his unchangeable purpose even more clearly to the heirs of the promise, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us.
