God Fulfills His Promises

God Fulfills His Promises

Jeremiah 33:14-16
14 “The day will come, says the LORD, when I will do for Israel and Judah all the good things I have promised them. 15 “In those days and at that time I will raise up a righteous descendant from King David’s line. He will do what is just and right throughout the land. 16 In that day Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will live in safety. And this will be its name: ‘The LORD Is Our Righteousness.’”

I don’t know about your home, but Christmas started a little slow for our home. So many of our Christmas traditions have had to be adjusted, and the stress…well even just a week before Christmas and all are baking isn’t finished. But things have started to turn around now because one family member just caught the spirit.

She was baking and put on the Christmas movie, Elf. Laughing soon ensued and the environment in the house began to change. I am reminded that Christmas is all about promises kept. God had promised that from the line of David a descendant would come that would change the world.

For many of us, broken promises are the impetus behind our anxiety which often leads to stress eating. When family members or friends break their promise to us, it is painful. When we are in pain, many of us turn to food. At times we blame God for the problems in our lives, we feel that God has failed in keeping his promises to us. Even in this time of the pandemic, many of us feel that the government has failed to protect us, and even now is failing to support us while they force businesses and places of work to close.

Promises are broken by family, friends, leaders, and our government, but God keeps his promises. He kept his promise in sending Jesus and in Christ we have life. We must trust that God will do what he says he will in his time.

Triple D: Let’s expect God to do what he says he will. That is exactly what he did that first Christmas morning. He saves us and brings us safely into his presence even in the midst of Covid 19. Let’s rest in him and expect good things from God this Christmas and on into 2021.
