318 Keeping a Promise

“Long ago I broke your yoke; when I snapped your chains, you said, ‘I won’t sin,’” (Jeremiah 2:20, CJB).

A promise like this is sure to be broken. We do sin and the children of Israel did so big time after You had freed them from slavery. Are we wrong to make such statements in the height of emotion when we have experienced great blessing from You? I have made such promises too and have not kept them and that must have grieved You.

Because I read hearts, I know the motivation and intent in which words are spoken. If you are thinking that by your own strength and will power you can keep a promise to change your life you are sure to fail. But if you say the same words with your confidence in Me and My plan for your life, I will be the strength you need to see it through.

Do you know the power of a declaration based on My Word? Not the repetition of words thoughtlessly, but an assertion made with confidence in the truth of My promises? Continue to declare that you are what I say you are and you will start to see changes in your life. And if you fail, don’t be discouraged. I’ve made provision for that.
