He Keeps His Promises

Some fungi growing on a Birch tree that I thought looked neat.
   Lately I have been reading to the kids each afternoon from the book of Joshua. Just lately we have been reading in the section that details just exactly how all the land was to be divided among the tribes. It isn't exactly what I would call terribly interesting but we read it because we want to know God's word in it's fullness and to gain what insight we can from it.

  Today the last verse of the chapter that we were reading had a thought that made me very glad that I had read it. It was just such a good reminder of who our God is and what He does. It says:

"The Lord promised to do many good things for Israel, and He kept his promise every time." Joshua 24:25

I really like the part about God keeping His promises. I know that He does but sometimes you know you just don't think about that - you just go on with your daily life and don't think about how God is and has kept promises to you over and over again. I am glad for that little reminder to be aware of Him working and be filled with gratitude for what He has done.

What are some promises that God has made to us?

 I thought I would share one with you and then I thought it would be fun if you would share some with me. If you can, please also tell where in the Bible you find that promise.

He has promised us the free gift of eternal life through Jesus. (Romans 6:23). What an awesome promise! He will keep that promise.

Okay, your turn... What promise do you like to cling to?

Genesis 8:22 "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."
I really love this verse especially at the end of March when we are really longing for Spring! :)mom
