Soul Snack 156/11... Diving Deep - A

God's good desire is that those who love Him should claim His promises.

There comes across each soul a parched season when the victories of life have become empty, the fame of success has waned and the debt's of the past claim re-payment. This season of hollowness is then met by the depth of God's promises.

When the world no longer allures, the passions of the flesh are quiet and the hope of tomorrow is absent from today ~ God's promises bellow and His words prevail. It is then that the grace of heaven shouts down the greed of earth. It is then that words of love consume the cries of lust. It is then that the bondage to the carnal is released into the freedom of the true spiritual.

God's promises become the only constant to life. They are secured by He who cannot die, lie or become bankrupt. The God of the cross can no more lie than break His word.

When the chirp of birds is no longer heard, when grey clouds constantly obscure a bright dawn and the heart remains heavy, it is His promises alone that can light the night and compass the day.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jer 29:11)
