When my grandson runs to me as I get home in the afternoons, he often says, "Hey Pa, do you want to play with me?" I say "Yes of course I want to play with you but I will need to do a few things first, like get a cup of coffee and relax for a little while." He says, "THEN will you play with me?" and I say, "Yes". For him it seems like an eternity to wait, but he trusts in my promise to play with him. He believes in me because I am a person who has the AUTHORITY TO MAKE SUCH A PROMISE AND ALSO THE POWER TO FULFILL IT. Multiply this power and authority to keep a promise by ten thousand and you would not even be close to the power God has to keep His promises.
