December 15, 2019: God's Promises Never Fail...
"Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed." Joshua 23:14 (NIV)
The importance of being honest cannot be overstated. "A man is only as good as his word," is an old saying.
In our own lives, we can look and see promises God has delivered on and some we still wait for and pray about. Many times in our lives, situations look impossible and problems insurmountable. God has proven repeatedly in all of our lives that he is trustworthy and dependable. Even in those times when we may have grown weak in our faith and discouraged, God still keeps those promises he made to us.
What about us? Can our word be counted on and taken as gospel? Have we earned a good name by being trustworthy and dependable? It may seem a little thing to us to not keep our promises, but those we fail to keep may cause hurt that can never be repaired. If we are to be godly and faithful Christians, we must be to others like God is to us — as good as our word.
