The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Taste and See -

Have you ever broken a promise or been let down when someone else did? The good news is God keeps His Promises. The Lord is perfect in every way and always keeps His promises. Psalm 119:140Your promises have been thoroughly tested; that is why I love them so much. [1]

The Old Testament is filled with prophecies that one day the Lord would send a Savior to save mankind. Isaiah the prophet writes, Isaiah 7:14 All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). [2]

Jesus’ Birth Would fulfill the Lord’s Promises

Repeatedly, the prophets wrote prophecies about the coming of the Messiah who would save mankind. The angel Gabriel tells Mary she will give birth to the Messiah, which will fulfill the prophecy of the coming of the Messiah.

Luke 1:28 Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!” 29 Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. 30 “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. 32 He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. 33 And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!” [3]

What Promises has the Lord Made to You?

God promises:

  • Those who call on the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13 For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” [4]
  • To hear your cries. Psalm 10:17Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them. [5]
  • Faithfulness.  Psalm 9:10Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you. [6]
  • To be with us. Psalm 24:18The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.[7]

The above are just a few of the many promises the Lord has made to us. The Lord is so good to us, and He is so faithful. Take time to thank the Lord today for all His promises. To hear how God keeps His promises, listen here:
