Today’s Promise : You can hold on to the hope that I will not change what I have promised
Hebrews 6:17-18 (WEB)
17 In this way God, being determined to show more abundantly to the heirs of the promise
the immutability of his counsel, interposed with an oath;
18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie,
we may have a strong encouragement, who have fled for refuge to take hold
of the hope set before us.
Promise #120: You can hold on to the hope that I will not change what I have promised.
In today’s Scripture passage, the writer of Hebrews tells us that we are heirs of the promise of God. He also says that we can trust in God’s unchangeable character because it is impossible for God to lie. Since God is the ultimate promise keeper, we can bank on everything that He has promised to be true. We can trust Him with all our heart and rely on everything that He has said.
The English Standard Version translation says Hebrews 6:17-18 this way… 17So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. (ESV)
Every promise that our God and Father has made is yes and amen in Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 1:20) May we all be filled with faith today to declare that God is faithful to do all that He has promised because He is a good Father who keeps His Word! …and it is impossible for Him to lie.
