“BROKEN PROMISES”

“The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14 NIV

READ: EXODUS 14:10-31

Disappointments are sure to be felt when someone we count upon breaks their promise.

There are some people you can count upon. Their word is their bond. You have probably found some others’ words can never be counted upon.

Pharaoh broke his promise to Moses and the Israelites when he said he would let the people go. The Israelites faced the Red Sea with Pharaoh’s army in pursuit. Faithless, they feared the army or drowning in the sea. While ready to surrender and go back to being slaves, Moses did not. GOD”s faithful servant held fast. Moses even used the situation as a time to teach. He told the people to not be afraid, even though it looked as if there was no hope. Moses promised the people the LORD would keep HIS promise. Both Moses and GOD kept the promises.

Life brings moments like this. Seemingly, there is no way out. We feel an evil army attacking us on one side and on the other we see no help or escape. Satan wants you to feel the pains of broken promises, not GOD.

You may be faced with a situation which seems like the end of the world. You or a loved one may have a dreaded health situation, facing a financial disaster, a loss of a job or marriage difficulties. Do as scripture tells us. Be still and know GOD.

GOD knows of your problems and of the broken promises, but GOD will not break HIS promise to you. GOD promises to always be there for you. Take your burdens to HIM in prayer. Just as GOD protected the Israelites from Pharaoh’s army, GOD will protect you in every situation.

TODAY’S PRAYER: “LORD, Thank you for always being there for me. Help me today to depend more upon you and less upon me. I know I can trust your promise to always be here for me. Amen.”
