God is a selfless being, and one of his attributes is that he upholds his word above himself (Psalm 138:2). This means God is determined to fulfill what he has spoken, unlike human nature, which focuses on “me first” before others. God’s unselfish aspect should make us trust him more because we understand that his desires for us are good, and ultimately, he wants each person to succeed in life. These attributes are more reasons to trust God and believe his word and promises because he does what he says (Isaiah 55:11).

As we approach the end of the year, we may reflect on some unmet goals, objectives, or promises. Instead of feeling discouraged, we should trust God. He watches over his word to perform it and upholds it above himself. Heaven and earth will pass, and years will end, but God’s word will never pass away (Jeremiah 1:12, Matthew 24:35). They shall live by faith- keep the faith. God is still watching over the promise He gave you to perform it.  Remember, Jesus’s birth was a promise God gave Moses in the wilderness with the Israelites (Deuteronomy 18:15). The promised Holy Spirit came with an outpour and fire on Pentecost (Acts 2). When God speaks, he concurrently creates; your promise will manifest!
