Trusting God to Keep His Word

by Roby Ellis

[Scripture Reading: Psalm 18:28-31]


A. Unlike those who serve Him, our God is always faithful (Lamentations 3:23; 1 Corinthians 10:13).

B. We can always know that God will keep His promises to us.

I. God has never failed to keep His word.

A. He kept His word to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-7; Numbers 1:46).

B. He kept His word to Israel (Joshua 23:15-16).

C. He kept His word to the saints of the early church (Matthew 26:32; 28:10; Revelation 6:9-11; 19:1-2).

II. God’s words of warning never fail either.

A. God’s word to Adam and Eve proved true (Genesis 2:17; 3:22-23; Romans 5:12).

B. God kept His word to Israel in this regard as well (1 Chronicles 13:10; Numbers 4:15).

III. We can still count of God’s promises.

A. He promises to provide our physical needs (Matthew 6:33).

B. He promises that all things will work together for our good (Romans 8:28).

C. He promises never to forsake us (Hebrew 13:5).

D. He has promised that Jesus is coming back for us (John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 2 Peter 3:9-11).

E. He has promised rest for the faithful (Hebrew 4:9-13) and torment for the unfaithful (Revelation 20:15).


A. Throughout history God’s promises have never failed.

B. When God makes a promise, we can know that He will keep it.
