Not One Promise Ever Broken!

Has anyone ever broken a  promise that they had made to you?  

Have you ever broken a promise to someone that you made to them?

Promises are often broken.  Even when people mean well, are good hearted, and honest.  Life happens, circumstances changes, and people are imperfect.  

Yet no matter how a broken promise happens, the one to whom the broken promise was made can be left disappointed, disillusioned, or even shattered.  

But there is one who has never broken their promise, ever.

“And now I am about to go the way of all the earth, and you know in your hearts and souls, all of you, that not one word has failed of all the good things that the LORD your God promised concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed.”  Joshua 23:14

Near the end of his life, Joshua took time with the children of Israel to review all that God had done for them since they had first began following Him.  God had given them an impossible task.  They had faced many difficult circumstances.  They had come along way over many miles and years.  But not one Word of God had failed.  Not one promise that had been given had fallen short of fulfillment.   

Joshua told them, and reminded them that God is faithful, had been faithful, and would continue to be faithful.  Not one promise of God would ever fail.

The God of Joshua and Israel is the same living God of the Bible today.  The character of God in those days is the same character of God today.  The power of God then is the same power He has now.  The Word of God now is as true as it ever was then.

As you live this life and walk your own personal journey find and claim the promises of God for your life.  They are found in His Word.  

Promises that He would save you and give you eternal life if you would repent and turn to Him by faith are true.  

Promises that He will never leave you nor forsake you are true, when you belong to Him and are a child of His.

Promises that all things will work together for good, whether we can see how immediately or not, when we love God and are called according to His purposes and plans, are true.

Promises to carry you, go with you, carry your burdens and give light and joy and peace are true when you call on Him and turn to Him. 

Promises that He will love you forever and that His love for you will never change are true.  

So many other promises that are made that will give you hope and strength are in His Word to be found.  They are all true.

He is worthy of our trust.  He is worthy of our love.  He is worthy to be believed and followed.  Because His Word never fails.  He has never broken one promise.  

Won’t you turn to Him today?
