DAILY DEVO...keep your promises

Have you ever made a vow to someone? Have you ever not kept your vow?

So many times I think we easily make promises (vows) that we either can't keep or we choose not to keep.

In today's Scripture reading in Numbers, we read that God loves vows...

(Numbers 30:2) "If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth."

There are many examples of people making vows in the Bible, and because of their commitment God honored them. People like Jacob (Genesis 28), Hannah (1 Samuel 1:11) and Solomon (Proverbs 7:14).

There is power in a vow! And if making a vow is serious, then fulfill your part so you can not only keep your word but experience favor with God.

No one likes someone who acts wishy washy, especially God. Make your "Yes" a yes and your "no" a no. If you make a vow, especially to God, do everything you can to honor your word. And watch God honor you.


TODAY'S SCRIPTURE READING: Numbers 29:12-30:16, Luke 3, Psalm 60:1-5
