God does not break His promises!

This is a tremendous statement but can I be confident that it is true.

Firstly, as a Christian I accept that the Bible is the word of God. There are many valid and persuasive reasons that convince me that the Bible is the word of God but that discussion is not for today. The Bible says that all the promises of God will ultimately be fulfilled in and through the Lord Jesus (see 2.Cor.1.20).

My second reason for believing this statement is the evidence of what God has done to date. In Romans chapter 15 verse 8 we learn that the Lord Jesus ‘confirmed the promises made to the fathers’. In other words He did what God had promised He would do. We find a similar statement in Titus chapter 1 verses 2 & 3. God promised ‘eternal life’ and the Lord Jesus provided it. If God has never broken His promises to date why would I assume that he will break them in the future?

If you happen to be reading this and are not a believer in Jesus Christ then you will find this truth quite disturbing. If God never goes back on His word then you are in big trouble. For among the many promises that God has made is this. He has promised to judge the world at the end of time (Acts.17.31). That judgement is personal as well as national/international. The judge is the Lord Jesus (John.5.22) and the assessment will be absolutely fair and evidence based (Rev.20.11-15). God will always do what is right and justice will always be carried out in the end.

If you are a believer look and pray for an opportunity today to tell someone about your experience with God. Share Gods word with them – you and they will be blessed by it.
