Promise is an assurance or declaration that someone will do a particular thing or a particular thing will happen.
Whatever your burdens are this morning, the solution to a troubled heart is still the same, to trust in God, to trust in His presence. “I’ll never leave you,” Don’t forget My presence.” Secondly, “Trust” My promises. When everything seems dark and gloomy, when everything seems to be falling apart, remember My promises.” Then trust in Me. I have you. You will not fall. You will not get lost…I am the Way. First… Trust in God….then Trust in His Presence….then Trust in Jesus.
Thank God he walks above the storm and that none of those things take him by surprise. Thank God that he is already at work to bring those burdens and troubles to an end. Thank God that he can turn the greatest disaster into a great blessing!! God wants to know if we trust him and serve him even when things are less than perfect. How about when everyone turns against you? When the money is gone? When the children are disobedient? When you are sick? In some cases…these things change, so you can turn to God.
God gave many promises both in the Old and New Testaments. He promised the children of Israel a land where there would be milk and honey. It took a while for the promise to be fulfilled, but finally it was fulfilled. He promised a Messiah, and that took a long time, too, but it was fulfilled. Jesus the Savior was born. Now God promises he is coming back for us. Someday we’ll be with Him forever and ever. You can trust the promises of God. This promise will be fulfilled, too!!
