God Keeping Promises by tony abram
(Gen 28:15 KJV) And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
God is giving us a wonderful 5-point sermon from this wonderful verse of scripture. We must remember that god is no respecter of persons. What He has promised others in His Word He also gives freely all things. Good old Spurgeon says that some of the promises are like the almond tree--they blossom hastily in the very earliest spring. But, he says, there are others, which resemble the mulberry tree- -they, are very slow in putting forth their leaves. Then what is a man to do, if he has a mulberry tree promise, which is late in blossoming? Why, he is to wait till it does! If the vision tarries, wait for it to come, and the appointed time shall surely bring it. Charles Haddon Spurgeon

1. Important, Jesus mentions it again here.
2. Pastor Allen in Ohio was questioning the Lord Why? He had a vision after his heart attack and split in his church of Jesus with the sandals on feet of Jesus.
When he questioned the Lord, Jesus spoke to his heart and
Said that the road He walked for us was long and rough. It brought peace to his heart.
IV. Jesus said, "I will not leave thee,"
(Mat 28:20 KJV) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

(Psa 107:22 KJV) And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
God answers prayer; sometimes, when hearts are weak,
He gives the very gifts believers seek.
But often faith must learn a deeper rest,
And trust God’s silence, when He does not speak;
For he whose name is Love will send the best.
Stars may burn out nor mountain walls endure,
But God is true; His promises are sure
To those who speak.
M. G. Plantz
