Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, and I will declare Your greatness.
God’s Promises Are Unending
Know this: God, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations” (Deuteronomy 7:9 msg).
God makes and never breaks his promises. The Hebrew word for covenant, beriyth, means “a solemn agreement with binding force.” His irrevocable covenant runs like a scarlet thread through the tapestry of Scripture. Remember his promise to Noah?
“I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”
And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” (Genesis 9:11–13)
Every rainbow reminds us of God’s covenant. Curiously, astronauts who’ve seen rainbows from outer space tell us they form a complete circle. God’s promises are equally unbroken and unending.
[Facing Your Giants]
Your word tells us that not one of your promises has ever failed. You are a covenant God who is steadfast and true. We can count on every word you have spoken. We can rely on you to answer our prayers as you have promised. We can stand firm on the truths of your word,
Blessed be the Lord, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised through His servant Moses.
[1 Kings 8:56]
The Lord your God is He who fights for you, as He promised you.
Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.
