There are promises made to the consumer and it is considered when purchasing a product. Often, when contemplating a major purchase, I will think about how previous merchandise has held up and if the manufacturer or distributor has backed up the product.
L.L. Bean says, “I don’t consider a sale complete until goods are worn out and the customer still satisfied.” That tells me that their product is designed to last and perform as promised.
What about God? Is He guaranteed to last? Do you give up on him if things aren’t 100% satisfaction in your life? Do you want to ask for a return if things are “falling apart” in your life?
Or if you can’t explain the “bad” things, the “sad” things, the “unfair” things?
Do you want to change vendors?
Do you want a god that guarantees “all things will be good, happy and fair?”
God almighty, creator of the universe is guaranteed to last…all of His promises will be true. I will not consider my life complete until I am worn out and He is satisfied.
How about you?
Pray these promises:
God promised that His love will never fail (1 Chronicles 16:34). He is faithful in every way.
God promised blessing for all who will delight themselves in His Word (Psalm 1:1–3). Simple faith has its rewards.
God promised salvation to all who believe in His Son (Romans 1:16–17). There is no greater blessing than the free gift of God’s salvation.
God promised comfort in our trials (2 Corinthians 1:3–4). He has a plan, and one day we will be able to share the comfort we receive.
God promised to finish the work He started in us (Philippians 1:6). God does nothing in half measures. He started the work in us, and He will be sure to complete it.
There are many more promises of God that could be listed. All of them find their ultimate fulfillment in Jesus Christ, “the radiance of God’s glory” (Hebrews 1:3). “No matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ” (2 Corinthians 1:20).
