If God’s promise is only for those who obey the law, then faith is not
necessary and the promise is pointless.
- Romans 4:14
light in the darkness.
that is Who You are”
What a great reminder! I know that when I hear it I’m reminded of all the places He has led me, the miracles He’s blessed me with, the promises He’s kept, and the Light in my darkness He was.
The song allows me to not only worship Him but have gratitude towards Him the whole time.
God has proven time and time again to not only me, but so many people in the Bible that He always keeps His promises. The simplest example is Noah and his ark. God promised him that He would never flood the earth again and He shows us that promise time and time again with a rainbow. We are blessed with one after storms.
As Christians, we know that this promise to never flood the earth is towards all of us, not just those who believe. But as Christians, this symbol of God’s promise reminds us of so many other promises God made to His children throughout the Bible, like the promise He made to Abraham.
God promised Abraham and all his descendants the whole earth. And this was not based on his good works, but rather faith alone in God. Abraham stepped into the right relationship with God through his faith alone and of course God followed through on His promise!
Then along came Moses, his descendant. Moses had to learn to stay true to the promise God gave him that He would bring His people to the promised land; and He did. But Moses broke God’s trust and was unable to enter into the promised land. God showed Moses the land, to show He kept His promise, but Moses died up on that mountain and God buried him (Deuteronomy 34:5-6).
It is so amazing to see all throughout the Bible the promises He keeps to His people. It is also wonderful to see it for yourself.
Friend, I want you to see God’s promises in your life. Look for those things He speaks of in the Bible that you are promised on this earth. The world does not promise us anything, but God does. He sent the Holy Spirit to be here with us on this side of Heaven. So, embrace that and feel His presence and remember that we are promised eternity with Him as long as we believe and have faith in Him! And that is worth more than anything this world can offer.
1. What is one promise you can meditate on today?
2. What friend do you have that you can remind them of God’s promise of eternity to us?
Heavenly Father, we are so so grateful that you are a promise keeper. Because of You sending Your Son Jesus to die on the cross for us we can now live with You in eternity! You are the ultimate promise keeper we will ever know! Thank You for showing us time and time again in Your Word of that. We love You, we praise You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
