Our God is a promise-keeping God? Others may make a promise and forget it. But if God makes a promise, he keeps it. The Book of Hebrews announces, “God has given both his promise and his oath” (Hebrews 6:18). The scripture goes on to say, “He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).
Does this matter? Does God’s integrity make a difference? Does his faithfulness come into play? When your daughter is on life support, it does. When you are pacing the ER floor, it does. When you are wondering what to do with your worst nightmare, you have to choose. Faith or fear, God’s purpose or random history, a God who knows and cares, or a God who isn’t there?
We all choose. Choose to trust God’s promises. Choose to believe that God is up to something good, even though all you see looks bad. Choose to believe because God is faithful!
