What does that Mean for me?

What do the promises of God mean for us?
they are unchanging
Ps 34
Psalm 33:4 CSB
For the word of the Lord is right, and all his work is trustworthy.
His work is trustworthy
What God has said will come to pass
This Goes all the way back to creation
Revelation 19:11 CSB
Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse. Its rider is called Faithful and True, and he judges and makes war with justice.
first God speaks then it happens

So what does this mean for us?

it means That we can trust God’s promises for our lives
Think back to right after the creation story to when Adam and Eve eat the fruit
and then sin destroys everything
sin separates us from God
what Does God do?
Genesis 3:1–15 CSB
Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit from the trees in the garden. But about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You must not eat it or touch it, or you will die.’ ” “No! You will not die,” the serpent said to the woman. “In fact, God knows that when you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” The woman saw that the tree was good for food and delightful to look at, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom. So she took some of its fruit and ate it; she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. So the Lord God called out to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” And he said, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.” Then he asked, “Who told you that you were naked? Did you eat from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” The man replied, “The woman you gave to be with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate.” So the Lord God asked the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” So the Lord God said to the serpent: Because you have done this, you are cursed more than any livestock and more than any wild animal. You will move on your belly and eat dust all the days of your life. I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.
Gen 3:1-
God made a promise-
Even after they messed up
and even after Adam tried to blame God
“The women whom you gave me...”
God made a promise that there would be one born of a women who would crush the serpent-
He would break the works of the satan
John 10:10 CSB
A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.
He came to undo the work of satan
Revelation 20:2 CSB
He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.
God word is true

“You will stick His heal but He will stick your Head”

This destroying of the work of satan would cost
there was a blow that He would take
there is a pain that He would endure
WE know it to be the cross
Just after the Fall God makes a promise
in Genesis Chapter 15 we see this guy named Abram who would later be called Abraham
God make a promise through a covenant with Him

an agreement between two parties (Ge 6:18; 14:13), note: the exact relationships of the two parties will vary according to context; 2. LN 34.42–34.49 pledge, a binding oath of promise

It is binding
Genesis 15:17 ESV
When the sun had gone down and it was dark, behold, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch passed between these pieces.
Gen 15:
God passes through the animals that were cut in two by Himself
saying I will take the fall if the covenant is broken
God knows that we fail that we as humans fall but His promises are true
The cross God would pay the price for us /
Abraham lived between 2166-1991 bc
God fulfilled the payment of our sin
What does that mean for us?
Does word out weighs our feelings
our feelings change
Proverbs 3:5–6 CSB
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight.
God’s Word out weighs our culture
James 1:22 CSB
But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
We live according to God’s word not what is around us
because we can trust Him
