In a day there are thousands of promises made to people, and many will never be kept. Many people are quick to respond to others with promises to do something yet never followed through, therefore leaving many hurt and let down because some friend or family member didn’t keep their word.

            But not so with God. Oh, I know some people say God doesn’t hear them because they ask something once and nothing happened the way they asked; so they think God doesn’t answer their prayers.

            But God does- maybe not our way- but He does answer the way He knows is best. Only God can see the future; no one else can. Others have to speculate while God knows.

In the Psalms we can read of God’s promises to all of us. Chapter 91 verse 15 says, “He shall call upon me and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble.” The “I” is God.

Now, you have to believe in God because without faith the Bible says you believe in yourself, your ways or others…not God. One makes it hard on himself to believe and trust without it; you put yourself out on your own. 

            God even talks about those who will believe and trust Him in verse 11 of the same chapter of Psalm 91: “For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” 

            A promise He will keep if you will trust the promise is yours.  Do you want it?
