42 For He remembered His holy promise, And Abraham His servant. 43 He brought out His people with joy, His chosen ones with gladness. 44 He gave them the lands of the Gentiles, and they inherited the labor of the nations, 45 that they might observe His statutes and keep His laws. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 105:42-45)
God keeps His promises. He promised to give Abraham, Isaac and Jacob “the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance”, and He did (Gen. 15:18; Psa. 105:11, 44). Joshua confirmed God’s fidelity in keeping His land promise (Josh. 21:43). The fact that God keeps His word should compel us to “observe His statutes and keep His laws” He has given us in Christ. Jesus said, “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do the things which I say” (Lk. 6:46)? Christ promises to eternally save those who believe and obey Him (Heb. 5:8-9). He also promises to eternally punish “those who do not know God” and “those who do not obey the gospel” (2 Thess. 1:8). Yes, God keeps His promises. Which one of these promises will He keep in your case? That, my friend, depends on what you choose to believe and do.
