Promised

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?

–Numbers 23:19

Today, I received a weather warning on my cell phone. 

Looking further at the forecast, I read that the current condition was sunny, but that a thunderstorm would begin in three minutes. 

Three minutes?

That would’ve been quite an abrupt change in a short amount of time. 

To give credit to the weather service, the rain did start very soon. 

Sometimes it is hard to believe that change is coming, either good or bad. 

If things are going well, we may not believe that troubling circumstances are near. 

The opposite is also true–when things are going badly, we may not believe that relief is even in sight. 

God knows the future, however, and He knows when change will occur. 

When God makes a promise, He will carry it through. 

Even if the skies are dark, they will be sunny again, if God says says they will. 

We can trust Gid, for He is faithful.
