Daily Devotional- Promise Keeper
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9
If you’ve been alive for any length of time, there’s a good chance that someone has betrayed your trust; someone at some point has made you a promise they didn’t keep or treated you in a way they shouldn’t have. Betrayal is hard. Broken trust is painful. Believing promises gets harder when people keep letting you down.
But we serve a God who keeps His promises.
The Bible tells an epic story of the God who pursues His people relentlessly, loves unconditionally, and keeps His word faithfully, time and time again. When He speaks, He means what He says. God promised Joshua that He would be with him wherever he went, then He not only kept that promise, but also gave us a written account of how He stayed with Joshua and the Israelites for generations and generations. We can see His faithfulness in Scripture and trust that the same God who kept His promises to His people then will be with us today.
That is where we find our strength. That is why we can be courageous in this world. We serve a God who does not change, who keeps His promises, and who does not leave us no matter what. We can stand on the secure, stable, and firm foundation of a God whose faithfulness endures forever.
