The devil promises to GIVE you things, but he can only TAKE things. He can’t give anything. He’s a taker.
A promise is only as good as the person promising it.
If the source of your promise is, “the father of lies,” then perhaps it would be prudent to check the fine print. If the source of your promise is, Jehovah-Jireh “The Lord will provide” (Gen. 22:14) then perhaps it would be prudent to PRAISE HIS NAME!
The devil was a murderer from the beginning. His very dialect is lies. It’s his native language. There is no truth in him (John 6:63). Is this the type of person you want to make a promise with?
God is/was/will be a Creator from the beginning. His very dialect is life. It’s His native language. There are no lies in Him (Heb. 6:18-19). This IS the type of person you want to make a promise with!
God promises to TAKE things. He’ll take your pain, your hardship, and your fear. God promises to GIVE things. He’ll give you rest, love, and peace.
He can give anything. He’s a giver.
May God’s Love be with you
