God’s Promises Have Been Tested And Proven

Has someone ever told you they would do something but they didn’t? They broke a promise they made to you? If so, that can make us hesitant to believe others when they make a promise.
But, there is one person who never breaks a promise and that is the Lord. In Psalms 119:140, the Psalmist says of the Lord, “Your promises have been thoroughly tested; that is why I love them so much.”
So, what are some of the promises of God?
First, God promises to save us if we will confess our sins and ask forgiveness. “If you confess your sins, Jesus is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (I John 1:9)
Second, God promises to provide for us. Psalms 37:25 says, “I have been young and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken Or his descendants begging bread.”
Third, God promises to direct us. John 16:13 says, “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all truths…”
Fourth, God promises to comfort us. II Corinthians 1:4 says, “…who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction.”
And, the list could go on and on.
Someone may have broken a promise to you at some point in your life. Maybe it still stings or hurts because that promise was broken. But we can trust the Lord. His promises have been tested and proven.
The old hymn says it well;
“Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring.
Glory in the highest I will shout and sing;
Standing on the promises of God.”
We can stand on the promises of God.
