Promises… “God-promises!”

Some people in emotional moments make all kinds of rash promises… at the moment they’re sincere – they intend to keep their promises, but frankly later on they find out they’re unable to keep them. Others, tragically, never intend to keep their promises… their promises are all cosmetics and hype (i.e. some car salesmen and politicians I’ve met 😉. If you believe them, you find yourself disillusioned, dismayed and just a little disgusted!Jesus is not like that! He keeps his promises (even when they seem incredible to us)! (Check out 2 Corinthians 1:20 – “All the promises of God find their ‘Yes!’ in Christ. That is why it is through Him that we utter our ‘Amen!’ to God for His glory.”)This morning I read the following “God-promise” during my time of “Coffee with the Lord”…Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name! Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” (from John 16;16-24 NIV)Gotta tell you, I believe Him! Jesus is not like others who make all kinds of promises in emotional moments and never keep them. Jesus keeps His promises… even when they seem incredible to us! Don’t know about you… I’m going to trust Him!Now, I’m not going to act like a spoiled child who demands all kinds of stuff for selfish reasons! But I’m not going to be intimidated either! He said it after all! … “Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete!”
