God keeps His promises

“Yiftach (Jephthah) made a vow to Adonai: If you will hand the people of ‘ Amon over to me, then whatever comes out the doors of my house to meet me when I return in peace from the people of ‘ Amon will belong to Adonai; I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.”

Judges 11:30-31 CJB

God already promised victory, so there was no need to make a vow or a promise to God! We need to be careful about saying and doing the same thing. We are not very good at keeping promises or vows!

“But Adonai-it is He who will go ahead of you. He will be with you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you, so don’t be afraid or downhearted.”

Deuteronomy 31:8 CJB

The LORD doesn’t need us to make vows. We just need to stand firm on His promises, knowing that the LORD never breaks a promise and always keeps His vows!

“Adonai will always guide you; He will satisfy your needs in the desert, He will renew the strength in your limbs; so you will be like a watered garden, like a spring whose water never fails.”

Isaiah 58:11 CJB

Today, just stand firm on what the LORD promises and remember, we don’t have to make vows! Have a blessed day in Him!
