The Word of God

Promises, Promises


Reflection on Mass Reading for July 8, 2019

“Know that I am with you; I will protect you wherever you go, and bring you back to this land. I will never leave you until I have done what I promised you.” How many times have you heard the expression, “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is?” The next question is probably a little painful: how many times have we learned the hard way that this adage was spot on? Perhaps too many times to count or remember! But all this changes when we look to the promises that God makes to us. They are too good to be true and they are all so true to be good! 

“Courage, daughter! Your faith has saved you.” We are in fact today given the perfect prescription of how we must go forward in this world of so many choices and rejections: The truth of the wealth of meaning found in the Scriptures today is simple but not simplistic. The road to heaven must be taken with great expectation of the great promises that Jesus has sealed with His blood on the cross. It is an exciting adventure toward fulfillment or it is nothing at all.

“No matter what has happened to you in the past or what is going on in your life right now, it has no power to keep you from having an amazingly good future if you will walk by faith in God. God loves you! He wants you to live with victory over sin so you can possess His promises for your life today!” Joyce Meyer
