Remember Your word to Your servant, upon which You have caused me to hope. Psalm 119:49
God, You are the only one who has the power to bring Your promises to pass. If I make a promise, I have the best intentions of keeping it, but I can't control everything. When I tell my son I'll pick him up after school, I'm assuming the car will start, that everyone will be healthy, that no other circumstance will intervene.
There is nothing beyond Your control, and therefore nothing can prevent You from keeping Your promises. There are no circumstances You fail to foresee. There is no individual that hinders You. You make promises with perfect knowledge.
When promises made to me have failed or been broken repeatedly, I give up hope.
Your sure word CAUSES hope.
I depend on that.
