My promises to others are small. I try not to commit to what I cannot do. And sometimes I forget something, so I try to keep notes in my iPhone.
You don’t want to promise what you cannot deliver to begin with. Time and effort work against promises
I know I have broken promises, both intentionally and unintentionally. And promises have been broken to me.
God is the opposite of you and me.
Gen 15:5 Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”
God’s promises are big. I mean to say your descendants will be as numerous as the stars is a huge commitment. It’s happened! How many descendants of Abraham have there been through the ages – both born naturally and adopted and grafted in!
It’s not the only promise He has made!
