Day Ten– הַיּוֹם עֲשָׂרָה יָמִים שֶׁהֵם שָׁבוּעַ אֶחָד וּשְׁלֹשָׁה יָמִים לָעמֶֹר
Blessed be the LORD, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised; not one word has failed of all His good promise, which He promised through Moses His servant.
1 Kings 8:56
But the LORD, who brought you up from the land of Egypt with great power and with an outstretched arm, Him you shall fear, and to Him you shall bow yourselves down, and to Him you shall sacrifice.
2 Kings 17:36
“But you promised!”
There is a special bond in relationships where promises are made and kept. When a promise fails, the feelings of disappointment can discourage us and even break the trust we feel towards one another. God’s promises will always be fulfilled. We may not always be able to reconcile the circumstances in our lives with this statement. Our God may seem far off in these times but He is living and aware of every detail in our lives. Take some time today and review some of the promises He has made.
How well do you rehearse the promises of God? As you cry out to God, express your thoughts and feelings to Him. What areas of your life might be strengthened by a fresh daily dose of God’s presence and promises? How can I listen to others and speak of or be a fulfillment of God’s promise to them? Consider how to relate the reality of God’s living promises. What discussion points might you present to a group of friends or to your family to open up sharing of needs and God’s ability to truly meet them?
