Standing On The Promises Of A Faithful Promise Keeper!

Promises are as reliable as the one who makes them. If we could be honest for a moment, I can safely say that we all have been disappointed from time to time with people who say one thing and do another. Yes, people will disappoint you! That is a fact of life! But!!! Not so with God! The world in which we live is constantly changing,, promising everything but delivering nothing but detriment to the soul of man. Life is full of increasing  uncertainty, difficulty, frustration, fears and insecurities.  Life has proven to all of us that much of what we thought we could  stand on has proven to be an unsure footing that is not dependable nor predictable. But that is not the case with God for He who promised is faithful. 

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23 

God has made many promises to His people and He never forgets any of them. He is never too busy and  He can not lie for Scripture declares in numbers 23:19God is not a man that he should lie, nor a son of man that he should repent. Has he said and will he not do it? Or has he spoken and will He not make it good? Since God is not a man and He  can not  lie, God can be trusted.

Standing on the promises of God! What does it mean to stand on the promises of God?  Standing on the promises of God  is the confident assurance in what God has promised usThe faith to believe that what we hope for is going to happen because He who has promised us is faithful and more than able to do just what He says He will do.

If there ever was a time that we as Christians must stand firm on God’s Word like never before, the time is now! We can and must build our lives on the promises of God’s Word  for we are His recipients of these great and precious promises We must  hold fast the confession of our faith without wavering for He who promise us is a faithful Promise Keeper! 

Hebrews 10:36: keep on patiently doing the Lord’s will  so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” 

My friends let me encourage you to stand firm in your heart and minds on the truth of God’s Word on today for that foundation of God stands sure.  On today open the book of promise, your bible and remind yourselves that when you stand on the promises of God, you are standing on the promises of a faithful promise keeper!

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

  1. I SUSPECT that some, do doubt God’s intervention in their lives because of a lack of Faith and right understanding. Some fully expect GOD to do what they want Him to do, as they want Him to do it and when they want Him to do; setting up a false dichotomy; false expectations.

    It is so easy for all of us to forget that God remains in charge, even when we would prefer that He not be.

    “Faith” is an awesome gift, but it IS a GIFT. God is not obligated to grant it to everyone in equal measure. Amen!

    Continued Blessings,

    Patrick
