A promise is an effort or commitment from one to another, that is, God to us. And the value of His promises depends on His reliability and trustworthiness. When in Rom 10:13, God says "For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved", He means it. In both grammatical and legal terms, the word "shall" implies must, will, obligatory, mandatory. Therefore, when God promises that He will do something, you can count on it. This study therefore is on the promises of God for our well-being and future, all of which we can count upon, the storms of life notwithstanding, because God is faithful; even "if we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself" (2 Tim 2:13).
