KEY VERSENumbers 23:19 (Balaam to Balak)
God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

You can count on me to fulfill all I have promised. I am trustworthy, so seek me and learn from me. When I declare something will happen, it will come to pass. I do not lie. I am a promise keeper. So when I say I will be with you and give you strength—which I will—you can rest in that truth. You don’t need to ask me to be with you—I’ve already promised I would be. Instead, thank me for being with you, just as I’ve said.

Not only does that change your prayer life, but it should change our relationship. When you begin to believe all I say, you will have the peace and confidence that many search for. Let others know that they will find those traits in me—and so many more—as well. I love you and am always with you. I will provide all you need—just as I’ve promised.

Do an internet search for “promises of God in the Bible.” Pick one or more that encourages you. Review the Bible verses and thank God for being faithful and trustworthy.
