“A promise is a comfort to a fool” as the old proverb dissuades the excitement of a promise, we, as humans can’t help but love to be promised something especially when we want it – inexplicably – bad. To hold on to a promise that comforts us and gives us hope means that we undoubtedly trust the promisor. Trust is not easy when intertwined with patience. That’s because “good things come to those that wait” but who really wants to sit in limbo? Often times when we are told to trust God and hold on to His promises (as outlined in the bible) we shrug at the idea because again our human eye prefers to operate by sight. We’d rather believe what someone says than what the Father promises. Time after time we discover that no man’s promise is sure, no man’s promise is perfect and no man’s promise will totally satisfy. And so … God is the answer. Trust in Jesus, you’ll be happy when you accept – not my will but His way!
