A famous American once offered this surefire formula for a do–it–yourself magic trick:
"To make people disappear, ask them to fulfill their promises." (Mason Cooley)
Unfortunately, these comical words aren't far from reality. We live in a world where "I promise" is seldom sincere and true faithfulness is a foreign concept.
We've all been disappointed by promises unkept. Our hearts have been broken by family, friends, those in the workplace. And, yes, the pain of broken promises can even be found in the church. We feel we can trust no one, and so we retreat to our fortresses of distrust and suspicion. We start guarding our hearts, at all costs, even to the point of doubting the sincerity of those closest to us. This leaves us lonely and unfulfilled, because we're too afraid to trust.
Can we ever trust again?
Yes, we can. But first we have to take down the self–made walls of protection surrounding our hearts. Only then, when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, do we discover that true protection and peace are found only in the Father's arms. Within these pages, you'll learn the meaning of promises kept and the true freedom that comes to those who surrender their fortresses of fear. As you discover the depths of God's Unbroken Promises, you can learn to trust again.
