Excuse the colloquialism.
The meaning for "My Word is Bond" is used for saying that people can trust you because if you promise to do something, you will do it.
I thank God for children. Why, because they are some of the biggest believers in keeping promises. If you have ever made a promise to child and broken that promise, I know that the conviction you felt was quite heavy. Children are great at making us adults accountable for what comes out of our mouths. I know that as a child yourself you have experienced the disappointment of a broken promise. It certainly did not feel good and you felt slighted in many different ways.
As an adult some of us have broken promises to ourselves. We promise that we will do a particular thing to make us better and we decide to put it on hold for something less important. If we can't keep a promise to ourselves, how can we keep our promises to others.
I learned several years back in studying about God's promises that there are close to 8000 promises or more in the Bible. Yes, I just said, 8000. Can you imagine God making 8000 promises to us and keeping them all. Yet, we have difficulties with keeping 1 or 2 promises. Need Proof - 2 Peter 1:4 And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
Here are a few:
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope
John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
Philippians 1:6 He who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus
Shall I go on? I would run out of space on this blog.
Imagine if you will, God breaking his promises to us. Where we would be today?
I challenge you to take on an assignment for the week. If you have made at least one promise, try to fulfill it and keep your Word. Don't make excuses and/or try to forget about it. Whether the promise is to you or someone else, "BE A WOMAN - WHOSE WORD IS HER BOND."
Meditate on that!
