If you cannot keep a promise to God ... Then you cannot keep a promise.
God makes promises to us and He always keeps them. We mostly fail to keep our promises. He tells us that He will not remember our sin and clearly He does not. He provides us both mercy and justice. He is indeed so truthful, so faithful and so loving to us. He provides for us non stop and always continuous. Unfortunately we are unable to do the same. Often we fail to keep our promises to Him. It should be the easiest thing in the world for us but it is not. We make it so very difficult. We are only a hindrance and in the way. There seem to be only a few times in our lives where we even attempt to make any kind of promise to our Lord. If you cannot keep a promise to God how could you ever expect to keep a promise to man. In essence, how then can we expect to be able to keep promises to ourselves? There are many times in the Bible where God is so disappointed in man. He loves us and He forgives us but ultimately He wants us to be like Him and to indeed have the nature that He possesses. That would mean to be loving, kind, faithful and loyal at all times for each and every time. One promise we make to God is when we marry. This is the bond of you and your soulmate that you have made to God and in front of witnesses. This is the love of your life and it should be the easiest thing in the world to keep that promise to God and to your mate. Yet somehow the world has once again missed the opportunity to keep promises to God. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard of infidelities, disrespect and unfaithfulness in so many marriages and relationships. It is so incredibly sad. The moral compass of the world has reached all time lows. It truly has. Commitment just does not mean what it is meant to mean.
The world has a way of substantiating all of the wrong things and the things that would take us so very far from the God who loves us, adores us and always provides for us. The only thing that we as humans can do is to do things God's way instead of in our human ways. God gives us advice on marriage. He tells husbands to treat their wives as Christ treated the church. He in turn tells wives to honor and cherish their husbands. God is love so if you want to be close to God do it His way. His way is always the right way. So keep your promises to all and mostly keep your promises to God. He always keeps His promises to us. Here are some verses on promises in the Bible:
Romans 4:20 He (Abraham) did not waiver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was able to perform. And therefore it was accounted to him for righteousness.
2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him amen, to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.
2 Peter 1:4 By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says The Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God, is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God bless always.
