Day 7: God keeps His Promises
“I will remember my covenant between Me and you and all living creatures of every kind..."
Genesis 9:15 NIV
A promise is an expressed assurance on which expectation can be based. It is a guarantee that
something specific will be done at a time and place. In today’s world where ‘self’ is king, a kept
promise is becoming a rare commodity. For instance, the promise of ‘Till death do us part’ is
slowly becoming a phrase that’s just uttered at weddings. When two people get married they
promise to love each other unconditionally, forever.
However, we are now seeing that the minute situations are no longer favourable to any or both
parties, they pack up and leave; seemingly forgetting the promise of the vows they made.
An individual desperate for a job promises a prospective employer that they will work hard and stick to the terms and conditions of their contract. But as soon as the work becomes challenging, they pack up and leave, or skive off work.
The list is endless. We've all been there, we’ve made promises that we intended to keep but for
one reason or another were unable to commit to fulfilling them. Now there is One who promises
and delivers all the time. He never fails to do what He has promised. Once He says He will do it, consider it done - God always keeps His promises. His word reveals all the promises He has
made to us, and guess what? He intends to keep every single one of them – both the great and the small.
I am sure you have seen the manifestation of at least one promise of God in your life. And you
probably went ‘Wow, God remembered!’ Well, He never forgets. He is also trustworthy. The
Bible says “He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are judgement: a God of truth
and without iniquity, just and right is He” (Deuteronomy 32:4 KJV).
Isn’t that wonderful to have a God who is so trustworthy that He keeps all His promises? Now
that is something awesome to know and be grateful to God for, wouldn’t you say? In gratitude,
we can boldly declare “Now, O Lord God, You are God, and Your words are truth and You have
promised these good things to your servant”. Amen.
Dear Lord, I am thankful because You are faithful.
I am thankful that in my life You have proven Yourself (not that You needed to) to be trustworthy by manifesting many promises in my life and that of my family.
I want to say thank You for these.
Father I am thankful that You are trustworthy. Lord don’t let me be like those who promise yet
fail to make good of their promises. Help me to make responsible promises and keep those I
make. Help me to continue to work on my behaviour so that I am a man/woman of my word and therefore can be trusted.
Help me to continue to exercise patience as I wait on You to deliver Your promises in my life. I
thank You for everything. I pray that my gratitude for Your trustworthiness is acceptable in Your
In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
