The Daily Devocast brings you daily encouragement from God’s word. Today’s devotional message God Keeps His Promises is based on Psalm 138:8.
8 You keep every promise you’ve ever made to me!
Since your love for me is constant and endless,
I ask you, Lord, to finish every good thing that you’ve begun in me!
(The Passion Translation, Psalm 138:8)
When we’re facing a particularly dark and challenging season in life, we can find ourselves in that place where we’re questioning whether or not God keeps His promises. What’s that difficult thing in your life right now? Is it your finances, challenges in your marriage, or difficulties with your health? No matter the problem or the season we’re faced with, God’s promises and His love for us remain constant.
In both good and bad times, we need to be saturating our minds with God’s word, so that when we face times of trouble, we can recall and speak God’s promises over our particular situation to remind us of the truth that God keeps His promises, loves each and every one of us with an everlasting love, and will finish the good things that He’s begun in each of us.
Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for loving us and keeping every promise that we read in the Bible. Help us to grasp the full depth of your love and Holy Spirit we pray that when we are in the midst of life’s trials, that you would assist us in recalling truths from your Word to give us courage and hope in the face of those challenges.
Action Step: Take out your journal or a piece of paper you can stick in your Bible. Next go to the Concordance at the end of your Bible and look for verses pertaining to God’s love and God’s promises. Write down between 5-10 of those verses in your journal or on that piece of paper. If you’re facing a difficult situation right now, speak those verses aloud right now asking God to make those truths come to bear in your circumstances. If you’re not facing a difficult situation right now, keep those verses tucked away, but handy for you to refer to when trouble comes knocking at your door.
