We Can Depend on God

From the first chapter of Scripture, the Bible makes a case for the dependability of God. Without exception, when God spoke something wonderful happened. By divine fiat there was light, land, beaches, and creatures. God consulted no advisers. He needed no assistance. “For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firmPsalm 33:9 (NIV).

The same power is seen in Jesus. He is unchanging. He’s never caught off guard by the unexpected. “God never changes or casts a shifting shadow” James 1:17 (NLT). God is strong. He does not over promise and under deliver. “God is able to do whatever he promises” Romans 4:21 (NLT). “It is impossible for God to lie” Hebrews 6:18 (NLT).

God will keep his promises.

It must happen because of who God is. And because God’s promises are unbreakable, our hope is unshakable.
