Do you remember days of childhood where oaths and secrets were sealed with a “Pinky Promise”?
As we got older we realized that “Pinky Promises” weren’t strong enough to withstand the test of time. Life taught us the hard way that promises would be broken.
God’s promises, however, will never be broken.
“So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.”, Hebrews 6:18-19, NLT
God has given us an unchanging and unbreakable promise and oath with a ‘No matter what’ clause.
- No matter what…it will not change.
- No matter what…it will not go away.
- No matter what…it will not be broken.
We each have dark and painful places where life is uncertain and we feel abandoned and alone. It is easy during these times to turn to other sources for comfort. I challenge you to seek refuge in God alone.
Don’t be lured away by the temporary things that are as fragile as the pinky promises. Have confidence and hope that He has you in the palm of His hand and is taking care of you not only now, but in the future as well.
Lets anchor our soul to His hope that is strong and trustworthy. In doing this, we can rely on His strength and not our own that is fragile and fleeting.
When we are anchored to Him and His hope, we can then enter into His inner sanctuary or His full presence. How sweet that promise is–and its a promise that can never be broken!
Sweet friend, if you are broken-hearted by promises that were not kept, find refuge in our Heavenly Father today. Anchor your soul to Him and you will be able to trust in a hope that comes only from Him. Rely on His strength and not your own. He promises to carry you through and give you hope–these promises will never be broken.
Father God, We come to you right now having a difficult time trusting because in our experience trust has been unreliable. We seek refuge in you today. Help us anchor our soul to you and rely on your strength over our own. Heal the places that are hurt and broken and allow us the privilege to enter into your presence. Help us get to know you in a deeper way than ever before. We thank you for these things and place our trust in you and your unbreakable promises.
In Jesus’ name…Amen
