"Keeping your promises to God"

I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you; vows my lips PROMISED and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble-Psalms 66:13&14 NIV.

It's so easy to make a promise to God about this and that when our backs are hard pressed against a wall. How many times have you let these words come out of your mouth---"Lord if you just get me out this, I promise that I'll do better"? I bet it's more times than you'd like to admit to.

When I was growing up I often heard my mother say "trouble is easy to get into but hard to get out of". Well if you give it some thought isn't this old saying just like making a promise to God? I'll answer that for you by yelling out a big fat Y-E-S.

God will allow us to make as many promises as we'd like to Him but know that He will most definitely hold us to what we've said (A man who makes a vow to the Lord or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do-Numbers 30:2 NLT). If God expects us to hold Him to His word (For no matter how many promises God has made they are "yes" in Christ and so through Him Amen is spoken by us-2 Corinthians 1:20 NIV), why then wouldn't He hold us to the promises we've made?

I'd like to leave you with just one more verse that I hope influences you the next time you begin to make a promise to God and don't have any intention on keeping it. When you make a vow to God, don't delay in fulfilling it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow. It's better not to vow than to make a vow and not fulfill it-Ecclesiastes 5:4&5 NIV.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
