Thursday, July 25, 2013 – Psalm 12; 1 Samuel 28:3-20; Acts 15:1-11 and Mark 5:1-20

Psalm 12 – The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure,
silver refined in a furnace on the ground,
purified seven times.

I give thanks that God is the promise maker and also promise keeper.

I have made promises that I have not kept. I’ve told members that I’d be by to see them, then got busy and forgot. Usually remember the promise made a couple days later and then get by to see them. It always bothers me when I don’t do what I said I would do.

But with God we can rest assured that if God makes a promise he will keep it, for God is the one and only one who truly does make us promises and keep each one of them.

Last night I was called to go over and be with Jim Reis’ family upon his death. Most of his family was able to be together at the time of his death. I give thanks that because God has promised eternal life to those who believe in him, I could assure the family that Jim now abides in heaven, in God’s Holy Kingdom of peace and love.

What promise of God do you hold on to? What promise of God is one you put your full trust in?

Mine is that God promises to love us and be with us all our life and see us into eternal life. The 23rd Psalm is one place I find this promise spoken of, along with many of the words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Friends, I trust in God’s everlasting love and all he’s done for us in Christ.

O God, I give thanks that you are the promise maker and the promise keeper. Because you are faithful in all your words and your ways, I trust in you and thank you for each and every promise made, for I know each and every one will be kept. Thanks be to you O God, THE promise keeper. Amen.
