  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

October 29, 2013 - Promises

By Greg Ebie

I called out to Jacob and Courtney to get ready to go. When they asked where we were going, I said, "We're going crazy." I could have said we were going to run an errand at Staples, but saying we were going crazy meant we were in for an adventure full of unexpected surprises.

We hopped like kangaroos into the store and walked like ducks going out. On the way home we made an unexpected stop at Dairy Queen. The ordinary was fun and full of laughter even for Susie and me.

What changed our errand into an adventure? It was the words I spoke. I had committed myself to having fun with the kids; they knew it and I knew it. My words needed to be as good as gold (or ice cream) for my children.

"For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why we utter the Amen through him, to the glory of God" (2 Corinthians 1:20, RSV).

These are not the promises of a man. They are the promises of God!

The Scriptures abound with the pledge of God's blessing for His children. All of His promises are sound and stable. Each promise is established beyond all doubt in the mind of God and is therefore absolute and unchangeable. Through Jesus, every promise of God is given a resounding "Yes!" Jesus Christ has all the power and authority to accomplish God's promises. Not one will be left undone.

With such promises, we too can shout, "Amen!" fully confident God will do what He has said. God's promises only increase His glory and greatness as they are fulfilled in the lives of His children. We can rest in the assurance of His faithful and powerful Word. We give no place to fear or worry. If God said it, then it will be done in our lives.

Are you in need of God's promises today? Is your life a roller coaster of emotion? Don't judge God by your circumstances, but see your situation through the promises of God. He is faithful to all His promises. Amen!
