Every word of every promise that I have made will come to pass.
1 Kings 8:56 (WEB)
“Blessed be Yahweh, who has given rest to his people Israel,
according to all that he promised.
There has not failed one word of all his good promise,
which he promised by Moses his servant.
God is not a man that He should lie. Every promise that He has made will come to pass because He is faithful to do all that He has said that He will do. In a world of broken promises and disappointing authority figures, it is easy to become cynical and mistrusting. Our negative life experiences with people can cause us to mistrust God in the same way.
In today's promise, we are reminded that God keeps His promises. All of them. We may not understand His ways at times, but He is always true to His Word. Trust is a huge part of the foundation of our faith. If we struggle to trust Him, we will struggle to believe what He says is true.
My prayer today is that God will restore childlike trust to each of our hearts in increasing measure so that we will have every confidence that every promise that our Papa makes will come to pass!
