A Time When Promises are Kept

by Elfrieda Nikkel

This God – his way is perfect; the promise of the Lord proves true.
Psalm 18:30

The Christmas story is an announcement to the world that God keeps his promises. Over the years God made a promise to send a Savior and now it was fulfilled.  The first word of promise was given in the Garden of Eden just after man lost his place of privilege and friendship with God.  Rather than spending a lot of time scolding Adam and Eve, God reached out to help.  Again and again through the centuries he reminded the people that he had not forgotten this promise.  Along with the promise of a Savior, God gives other promises that are ours to claim.  He promises to give strength, to give wisdom, to guide, to give counsel and to walk with us.  Have we claimed these promises as our own?  May the banner over this Christmas season read, “The promises of the Lord prove true.”
