When was the last time you considered the power of a promise? Which promises are you counting on at this very moment? What decisions have you made based on these promises?

To a large degree, our lives are ordered by the “promise system.” Our employer has promised to pay us a certain wage in exchange for a certain amount work. We trust this arrangement and make all sorts of financial commitments as a result. When a couple marries, they pledge their lives to one another based on a set of promises. On the football field, the quarterback risks broken ribs and dislocated limbs because his teammates have promised to do their best to protect him.

Promises are powerful. They move us toward extreme level of commitment and adventure. But how much of our lives are impacted by the promises of God? Do we know what promises God has given to us?

If we’re honest, we would probably have to confess that our lives aren’t being impacted as powerfully as they could be by God’s promises. There’s a lot more that we could be doing if we really allowed the promise system to take hold in our spiritual lives as much as it does in our material lives. So how can we make this happen?

It all starts with having the proper perspective. As we go forward in life, we need to recognize and remember that promises are powerful, especially when God gives them.

    This is a really good one. How many promises have been made to us that people have broken. God never does. We can take that to the bank
