God Keeps His Word

For when God made a promise to Abraham, since He had no one greater by whom to swear, He swore by Himself,
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:13‬

The writer of the Book of Hebrews wanted us to know that we can fully trust God in every aspect of life.  We can trust Him for salvation, forgiveness, and grace.  Most of all we can trust what He says He will do.  He keeps His word.

When God made a promise to Abraham He followed through with His word.  The writer wants to remind us that just as God kept His promise with Abraham, He will keep His promises with us.  And most of all, we can trust Him because of that great truth.  

God swore by Himself because there was no one greater for Him to swear by.  We swear by and take oaths upon the Bible and to God because He is greater than all.  The downfall is that we sometimes don’t keep our word.

The next time you start to lack trust in God remember that He has kept every promise He has made.  He will never leave us nor forsake us.  He will never turn His back on His children.  

He will never keep anything great from you because He loves you so much.  You may think God is not following through but in reality He is up to something great.  Trust in Him because of who He is.  He is the great “I AM”.


Lord, You have been faithful for all of eternity.  You will not fail me now nor anytime in the future and for that I will trust in You. Help me to keep my word and be an example to others.

He Is God

“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;”
Deuteronomy 7:9

Faithfulness is part of God’s character. He keeps every promise because He is faithful and true. If God were not faithful, we could not be saved nor would there be any reason to pray and have hope.

God has proved His faithfulness by staying true to His word. God will never let you down.

We live in a world of broken promises. There are people suffering from broken promises and unfulfilled commitments. A person’s word is no longer considered good enough to keep a contract. Unkept promises make for a frustrating life.

There are times in our life when we face trials so challenging that we tend to think that God has forgotten about us or that He doesn’t care about what happens in our circumstances. That is not God’s character.

God loves you and He is faithful in every aspect known to man. He knows and cares about what you are facing.

Sometimes we tend to have an earthly perspective of God. We almost try to bring God down to our level. That is a big mistake.

God’s thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are higher than our ways. (Isaiah 55:8) The next time you face a difficult situation just remember that God is faithful to His word. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will never give up on you. He will never let the enemy devour you. He will never stop loving you.


Lord, thank you for always keeping your promises. Your words are faithful and true. Help me to always remember that You will never fail me.
