God always keeps His promises.
I wonder if you’ve ever broken a promise? Many times we are forced to break our promise, due to unavoidable circumstances. Our ability to keep a promise is limited to our ability to control any unforeseen restrictions.
God is the only one able to keep His promises, because He can control and change any circumstance and He has no restrictions.
That’s why God can be trusted, even if what you have been promised seems impossible.
William Booth once said:- God loves with great love the man whose heart is burning with a passion for the impossible.
When God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations, it seemed like an impossible promise. He was nearly 100 years old and Sarah was 90. This is just one of the many times God went against expert opinion and it’s summed up well in Romans 4
who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” 19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. 22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.” – Romans 4:18-22
Abraham had to believe with childlike faith despite his great age.
A child will believe the promise you make without question and without wavering. When Abraham believed in this way it was accounted unto him as righteousness. God kept His promise to Abraham and He can keep His promise to you.
We need to believe with childlike faith the one who gives the promise rather than inspecting the means by which it comes.
God made a promise to Noah and to all flesh in Genesis 9 that He would not destroy the earth with floods again.
And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. – Genesis 9:12,13
The promise God made was to all flesh, not just mankind but to every creature living on the whole earth. Today the rainbow is the only recognisable symbol of God’s promise which can be seen all over the earth by all creatures.
The rainbow is a symbol of mercy toward us. It’s a symbol of God’s promise still being kept, because He is our great promise keeper.
Even if the promise God has made to you seems impossible, believe the God of the promise in simple childlike faith. Only He is able to move any obstacle and keep His promise to you.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. – Hebrews 11:23
