Promises

Deuteronomy 1:11 - "The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!"

"The Promise" Chorus by Michael Card.
The Promise was love
and the Promise was life
The Promise meant light to the world
Living proof Jehovah saves
For the name of the Promise was Jesus

Promises can mean many things in our lives. A promise can stand on the foundation of relationships, marriages, and careers. But promises can also take place in our spiritual life just as well as ouphysicalal life. And if promises are assurances then what greater promise do we have than in Jesus.

Christianity is founded on a promise. Faith involves waiting on a promise. Our hope is based on a promise. Promises are made with words. ...that part of myself that goes with every promise is given to you through my words...Our God is the great maker of promises...His word, our Bible, is a collection of the promises...most of these concern Jesus, who came to be known as 'the Promised One'

Through all these promises, God was trying to give something of Himself to Adam, and to Israel, and finally to us. The Bible tells us that when the Promised One came, the Lord poured all of Himself into Him.

What a costly thing it can be to make a promise - it cost Jesus His life...

I am reticent to make promises. I cannot remember them all and I fear I may promise something beyond my abilities. Promises are important currency and should be kept safe. Good to see your blog here.
