The Certainty of God’s Promise
13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.”[d] 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised. 16 People swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument. 17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. 18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul
Clinging onto His truth and goodness and righteousness
Knowing that He will provide
He always delivers
We have are able to love deeply and boldly and vulnerably because we know that God is the provider and the deliverer. He is steadfast in his love, faithful in his promises, and timely in his deliverance.
In 277 days I will put an oath before the Lord who is faithful in his promises, and I will promise before him to love the man who is in front of me for all the all the days that the Lord has numbered for me.
