2-18-2018 False Hope


February 18, 2018


A sale flyer from Bass Pro Shops came out about two weeks ago indicating an amazing sale starting February 16th. I’ve keep an eye on a new graphite casting rod and premium reel combination for most of the winter waiting for it to come on sale. And finally, there it was… on page 1… half off! All I had to do was save my allowance, wait till February 16th and place the order.


Well, Friday the 16th came… I made my way to the computer early, logged into my on-line account with them to place the order and behold… the site indicated it was an ‘in-store’ only sale. I was a little frustrated because the flyer gave no indication it was an in-store only special. Disappointing! I really believe possessing a 17th rod (oh, come on now… they’re like tools, they all have different purposes) would have made all the difference this summer.


Aren’t you glad God’s Word never gives us false hope?! Aren’t you glad that we can always have full faith and confidence in what He promises?! Aren’t you glad that God never disappoints?! Aren’t you glad that false advertising is impossible with God?!


God can’t tell an untruth…

Titus 1:2 (NASB)
2 in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago,


God is always the same…

Hebrews 13:8 (NASB)
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.


And there is no variation in Him…

James 1:17 (NASB)
17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.


How amazing is our God!!!

Thank you for your faithfulness. Pastor Larry
