“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” — Hebrews 10:23, NIV.

Every day, we constantly choose to trust something or someone. It could be trusting our car to take us places or the thought of getting the package we patiently waited for.

Knowing that God keeps His promises to us brings a different kind of comfort in our faith journey. Despite the uncertainties and doubts, several vital aspects can help us understand and trust God’s promises.

In Malachi 3:6, God declares,

“For I, the Lord, do not change.”

The Bible shows evidence of God’s faithfulness to His people. According to God’s divine plan, he fulfills His promises in His perfect timing. This unchanging nature of God gives us confidence that God keeps His promises, which are reliable and enduring.

Historical Fulfillment of God’s Promises

The Bible is filled with proof of prophecies being fulfilled throughout history. These prophecies, given by God through His prophets, serve as tangible evidence of His faithfulness. For example, the Old Testament foretold the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Moreover, the fulfillment of these prophecies in the life of Jesus is a powerful testimony. It shows us that God is trustworthy and keeps His promises to us.

The Holy Spirit as A Witness

As believers, we have the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. It guides, teaches, and reminds us of God’s promises. He affirms the truth of His faithfulness in our hearts, bringing assurance that God’s words are true. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, we can experience a relationship with God and a deep conviction in our hearts.

Moreover, knowing that God keeps His promises requires faith and trust. Hebrews 11:1 tells us that faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things unseen. Therefore, it is through faith that we trust in God’s promises, even when circumstances may seem contrary. Moreover, faith requires us to surrender our doubts and uncertainties to God.

Holding onto God’s Word as Solid Proof

We might notice that the Bible is a written revelation of God’s promises to humanity. It is a collection of God’s interactions with His people, which contains multiple promises and accounts where they were fulfilled. Furthermore, studying and meditating on God’s Word makes us understand His character and how He keeps His promises. This is why we can always trust Him to do His bidding; God has and always will be faithful.

Even with The Death of the Promise looming over us occasionally, we choose God through it all. So, on that day when Jesus returns for His people, we can finally see how God keeps His promises to us, ultimately glorifying Him forever.

The timeless principle that God’s promise represents is shown through His Word. No matter what happens, we can always hope because God never failed in every regard. After all, his Word says so.

These are some gentle reminders about God’s promises that we need to uphold:

  • Even when awful things happen to us, God keeps his promises by being in control (Psalm 91:1-16).
  • God supplies ALL our needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus. This means we won’t have to worry about anything because He is the God who provides (Philippians 4:19).
  • When fear gets the best, we can count on God to be with us because He gives us peace.

Such promises are true because the Bible contains over 7,000 promises God intends to keep. Even in our hopelessness, our strength is renewed every morning.

Renewed Faith & Trust as God Keeps His Promises

What do God’s promises reveal about Him?

Because God is complete with integrity, you’ll never catch Him slipping. Even when life throws a curve that tempts us to doubt Him, God always turns that around. If we even have room to doubt God’s goodness, it will be harder for us to rely on Him at all times.

We can always hold onto his Word and say, “God, you promised this.” Because we are His children, we have the privilege to do so. However, we don’t say it to demand or sternly remind Him because God never forgets. This is more of a reminder to ourselves that His peace, guidance, strength, and love are the core essences of what He can do for us. Furthermore, our unwavering faith and trust are apparent even when we don’t understand what He has in store. That is why we obediently trust that God keeps His promises.
