God always keeps his promises


By Steve Greene

What is one thing that you need to let go of so you can become the man/woman/young person that God is calling you to be?

Over the past few weeks, we have been asking a few introspective questions that will help us answer this bigger question.

There is one more important question I want to invite you to consider as you think about 2022. What one promise do you need to claim personally this year?

The psalmist said, “I praise God for what he has promised. Yes, I praise the Lord for what he has promised.” (Psalm 56:10) In Joshua 21:45, we read that “Not a single one of all the good promises the Lord had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled. Everything he had spoken came true.” Please be reminded today God is still on the throne. He is for you, and God always keeps his promises.

There are so many promises in the word of God. Which of his promises do you need to personally claim in this new year? You may immediately know the answer to that question. Others may need to search the scriptures to discover the promise God has for them. Here are a few promises to consider.

If you are struggling financially and you’re afraid, God has promised to meet your needs. Philippians 4:19 says, “God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”

Is there a recurring sin in your life? According to 1 Corinthians 10:13, there is a way out: “God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” There is power through Christ to help you overcome the temptation and sin that has gripped you for so long.

In First John 1:9, we find God’s promise to forgive: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” You don’t have to live under the weight of your sins from the past. Your confessed sin is forgiven.

God’s word is filled with powerful promises that apply to you and me. In Psalm 32:8, God promises to guide us and give us direction for life: “The Lord says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.’”

We’ll pick up there next time.
