A Storehouse of Promises
by Charles R. Swindoll
God made the promise . . .
saying, "I will surely bless you and
I will surely multiply you."
God's Book is a veritable storehouse of promises—over seven thousand of them.
Not empty hopes and dreams, not just nice-sounding, eloquently worded thoughts that make you feel warm all over, but promises.
Verbal guarantees in writing, signed by the Creator Himself, in which He declares He will do or will refrain from doing specific things.
In a world of liars, cheats, deceivers, and con artists, isn't it a relief to know there is Someone you can trust? If He said it, you can count on it.
Unlike the rhetoric of politicians who promise anybody anything they want to hear to get elected, what God says, God does.
