We all live on promises. If we are married it is the promise of our spouse that they’ll be there in sickness and in health until death parts us. If we are approaching retirement we are banking on (pun intended) the promise of social security. We hope that our boss keeps his promise to act in the best interest of the company over his own. The weak link in any promise is the one making it. So every promise is vulnerable to failure except for those made by One who always comes through.

In today’s passage we look at the issue of promises. We examine some of the promises God has made to us and how we make them operative in our lives. Because although a promise deals with a future condition, they are to be applied to present life. Listen in as we learn how to rely on God’s promises and rest in the One who has sworn by Himself to keep them.
