The Journey with Ron Moore

Foxhole Promises | Psalm 66:8-15

Todayís Passage: Psalm 66:8-15
Key Verses: Psalm 66:13-14

I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to youóvows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble.

I have heard them called ìfoxhole conversionsî ó spiritual decisions made while under fire. People make some pretty significant promises when they are in trouble. ìGod, I will do anything and go anywhere and tell anybody . . .î

Then the problem passes. The relationship is restored; the tests are clear; the treatment works. When the trouble goes away, the urgency for God seems to disappear as well.

However, God uses difficult times to refine us and put us on the path that leads to ìa place of abundance.î Todayís passage reminds us to fulfill our vows, the vows we made when we were in trouble, when God had our attention. God uses storms to help us see our need for him more clearly. He doesnít want us to forget our need for him or our promises to him after the storm passes.

Father, help me keep my promises to you. Help the vows I make to stick. Help me not renegotiate or ignore the promises I made when I was in trouble. In Jesusí name. Amen.
