"For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us"-2 Corinthians 1:20.



What's in a promise these days? That depends on who makes the promise. If it comes from a campaigning politician it may be no more than an attempt to scratch itchy ears or to outright deceive voters. Sometimes, a promise stems from the good intentions of someone who has overestimated his ability to deliver on his pledge. Defendants and witnesses promise to tell the truth in a court of law, and sometimes the only clear verdict the jury can render is that somebody's lying.

The promises of God, on the other hand, are yea and Amen. This phrase is just a way of trying to convey how solid His promises are, but futile is the attempt because no words in any language can adequately describe the reliability of God's promises. They will never deceive us, leaving us empty. God is able to deliver on whatever He says. And He is the only One who cannot lie. Of course, the greatest promise in the entire Bible is that of eternal life for all who place their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.

What sets the Bible apart from all other books in the world is that in the Bible we find the promises of God. This uniqueness is not without significance. For every single day, lives that have been shattered through the broken promises of men find new meaning through the sure promises of God.

Dear God in heaven, I praise You for Your promises found in Your Word. They anchor my soul when life becomes like a stormy sea. When Your promises challenge my faith, please help my unbelief. Amen.
