Promises! Promises!

Promises!  Promises!  We all make promises we fail to keep. Better than halfway through the first month of 2012 and many of my resolutions have blown away in the winter wind. Fortunately, unlike me, when God makes promises, He keeps them, all 8000 of them!  Not always instantly, or in exactly the way I imagined, but He keeps His promises to me with the wisdom of a loving Father; and not as an indulgent grandpa.  Here are a few of my favorites:

1. I promise NEVER leave you; NEVER forsake you. Hebrews 13:5

2. I promise to HEAL you.  2 Kings 20:5

3. I promise to LOVE you forever and ever and ever.  Jeremiah 31:3

4.  I promise to STRENGTHEN you.  Psalm 27:14

5.  I promise to GUIDE you. Psalm 32:8

6.  I have PLANS for you.  Jeremiah 29:11

7.  I promise to HELP you.  Isaiah 41:10

8.  I promise to SUSTAIN you.  Psalm 37:25

9.  I promise to SAVE you from yourself.  John 3:16

10. I promise to CARRY you home.  John 14:1-3

Pretty good, eh?  Perhaps I should make it my goal this year to find and underline the other 7,990 listed in God’s Word.
