God doesn’t break His promise.

Today’s scripture comes from David’s prayer.  He’s praising God for all He has done for him.  And now, David is thanking him for the promises God made to his future generations.  God promised David his offspring would succeed him, carrying on his name, establishing his throne forever.  God fulfilled that promise through Jesus, a direct descendant of David.  God kept His promise not only to David but also Abraham, another ancestor in Jesus’s lineage.

God kept His promise to David.  He’ll keep His promise to you.

A Sampling of God’s promises for you:

  • Guidance and Help: “For this God is our God forever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.”Psalm 48:14 NIV
