August 19, 2018: SOAP #3181:  Jeremiah 45-47; Psalm 105; John 21

Scripture:  Psalm (NIV) [Written about God leading the Israelites out of Egypt] 105:39 He spread out a cloud as a covering, and a fire to give light at night. 40 They asked, and he brought them quail and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. 41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out; like a river it flowed in the desert. 42 For he remembered his holy promise given to his servant Abraham.

Observation:   God's promises were made to Abraham as recorded in Genesis 13:14-17.   Generations had come and gone, but God still remembered His promise.   I am so thankful God remembered His promise made to Adam after they had sinned.   He promised to send a sacrifice to cover our sins!   Generations later, Jesus came to fulfill that promise!   God's promises are based on His character.

Application:   We can count on God's promises because He is faithful to who He is!   It is a trait that God wants to perfect in me.   I want people to be able to trust me and depend on me because they know my character.

Prayer:      Heavenly Father, most important is that You can trust me.   Holy Spirit work in my heart, remind me of God's promises to me and of my promises to God.  Help me be faithful to those commitments.   Help me be known as a promise keeper.   Amen
