Promise Keeper



God is faithful and true. His promises can be banked on; He keeps them no matter how long it takes. I woke up very early with a heavy heart. You see, I went to bed feeling this way, and I woke up the same way.


I was asking God about some of the promises that have not come to pass. “God, it seems as if they are dead at the moment. Did I hear wrong?” I asked. I was dealing with situations that have shaken my belief in people. I witnessed actions that were opposite of godly behaviors. Completely contrary to the word of God. I heard myself say, “God, can I trust anything I heard, believed, and felt? Then, out of the blue, I received a message. It was a tag on FB. It was from my friend Gillian Wedderburn Henriques.


I knew, immediately, “God, you’re speaking to me by whatever Gillian posted.” I went quickly to look. I noticed it was a post she had tagged me in a few weeks back. This particular message has been one that God has used to remind me He keeps His promises. Every time I have questioned? God brought that image of that post to my mind. Then, I could hear him say, "I have already equipped you for this battle. Go! Keep walking, stay on this path, do not turn back, do not exit. You are to keep going on this path I have placed you on. Keep walking." I mean for days on end, after that post, I kept seeing that image and hearing same words.


Last night, the uncertainty raised its ugly head again. I went to bed feeling and asking God the same thing. This morning, I got a notice she had tagged me on FB again. Immediately, I heard God say, "That post and that word is for you!" I went to it and saw it was the exact post as the same she tagged me in days ago. I read it again. This time I became emotional at the image in this post. I commented back letting her know I needed that word. She responded back, "I have No idea why you got that post again; I didn't send it!" Imagine my shock! “What do you mean you didn’t send it?” But I knew in my Spirit God was speaking to me yet, again. He was sending me the exact same message.


God knew that I was struggling and I needed to be reminded again. God was speaking to me very clearly. He was letting me know that his promises shall be delivered only in his perfect time. He is a God who keeps all his promises. It doesn’t matter how
