1 Kings 8:15 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which spake with his mouth unto David my father, and hath with his hand fulfilled it, saying,
Promises, Promises, we hear them every day. Sometimes we see people keep most of their promises. I say most because, even the most honest, trustworthy person in the world can make a promise and then not keep it. For example, imagine Mr. Honest has promised to be somewhere at 5:00 P.M.. He sets out 30 minutes early to the destination, which is only 10 minutes away. On his way, he encounters a train stopped on the tracks he must cross. This should not be a problem, he left in plenty of time. Sure enough, the train pulls out of the way and he has 10 minutes to spare. As he crosses the tracks, his tire picks up a nail and goes flat. He gets out and changes the tire, but now he’s 5 minutes late to his appointment. I know you might be saying, well those were things beyond his control, and you would be right. However, I would be just as right to say he made a promise he did not keep. Only one person is 100% accurate always.
Solomon has finished the temple and is sharing words of dedication on this place. He reminds the people in 1 Kings 8:15 of God’s faithfulness; “…Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which spake with his mouth unto David my father, and hath with his hand fulfilled it,…” When God makes a promise, He foresees all the variables to come. These sorts of things might unexpectedly pop up and hinder man. However, nothing takes God by surprise.
How reassuring, that when God promised us salvation, there’s no variables He didn’t foresee. When He promised an eternal home in glory, nothing will stop His construction plans. God’s blessing are always fulfilled according to His word.
What promises has God made to you?
No matter the overcast sky of life today, when we look to God, there is always a Bright Looking Future. We saw that in our devotions this week in:
● Believing In Forgiveness
● Bringing Back Faith
● Brilliance From A Father

Seeing God as our future can bring sunshine to even the darkest of skies. If you know Christ as Saviour, you too have a Bright Looking Future ahead
Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs
