(This is a challenge between student and teacher. Rules of the challenge are found in the posting entitled: “A Challenge Has Been Presented Using the Book of Psalms”)
Today’s Verse: “Offer to God thanksgiving and pay your vows to the Most High.” Psalms 50:14 (NKJV)
I Give Thanks For: Promises Kept!
I have made a lot of promises throughout my lifetime. Some I have kept and others, sadly, I have broken. Various other people in my life have made promises to me. Some of those promises were kept and some were broken. No one likes broken promises. They mess with your mind. But God. . . !
God makes a promise to His children, and He keeps it! He keeps all of His promises, all the time! God never breaks a single promise made – NEVER!! Wish I was like that.
This morning I was reading Psalm 91. I would like to say that it is my all time favorite psalm, but then there are so many of those. But it is definitely among my favorites, that’s for sure. Why? Because those verses hold all of God’s protective promises. There are some very precious promises there. I greatly encourage you to take the time, sometime today, and read through it. But for just now, let me share this part:
God says this to His child, “Because he (or she) has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him. and show him My salvation.” (Psalms 91:14-16
Did you notice all of the “I will. . . ‘s in that portion of Scripture? Those are God’s precious promises to His children! Care to read them again? They are for YOU, if you are His child. I read through those verses, and I realize that my God has kept every one of those promises for this, His child! Not one has been broken! Not one will ever be broken! For our great and holy God is incapable of breaking promises. And for that I am truly thankful.
Another great post! Yes God keeps all of his promises!
A question…. Will we ever get to see what your student has come up with for this challenge? I think that would be very interesting to see, if they are willing to share 🙂 If not, that is certainly understandable too.

I did ask my student if he would share with me what he is thankful for – and maybe I could share that on my blog as well. He is sharing it in school (its actually a school project that he invited me to do with him), and he is sharing it with me personally, but his parents have requested it goes no further than that. So, I will honor his parents wishes and will not be sharing his writings on my blog.
