Promises From God’s Word 6.3.2011

Proverbs 3:3-4 “Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.”

What are two characteristics that God promises that both He will bless and will also help you find favor and success with others? Steadfast Love and Faithfulness. That pretty convicting when you think about it.

Are those two defining characteristics of my life? Am I so committed to them that I could say that they are bound around my neck and written on the tablet of my heart?

How about you?

Are steadfast love and faithfulness characteristics in your life?

If they are, then here is a great promise for you. If they are not, then you need to make a change and ask for God’s help and He is more that willing to help you and give you the grace you need (Hebrews 4:14-16) to do what He asks you to do. Do you realize that God wants us to cash in on His promises and to hold Him to what He has said? That’s the cool part, God loves to be sued by His own promises and to pour out His grace on those who seek it. It must bring great joy to the Father when we do so, because it reveals that we really do put our faith in Him and His Word and also that we truly believe He is worthy to be trusted.
