I was so encouraged by Psalm 146:1-10. God makes promises to us in His word. Anywhere you see “will” in the Bible is a promise. God cannot lie. God cannot break His word.
When I read God’s promises I feel like a little child hanging on the words of a parent. You know how you believe everything your parents tell you? You take their word as true, and you just know that they know EVERYTHING. That’s the way I feel about reading God’s word. And I love that when I get older, I won’t realize it’s not really that way. In fact, I’ll know for sure that God’s word is absolutely the truth.
People can, and do break promises, and it’s disappointing and hurtful. I love His word because regardless of what is going on in the world and in our lives, His word never changes and He always keeps His promises. I stand on His word. I’ve experienced His power in my own life. God is real and so is His word.
