At FredWes this month we have been unpacking these four powerful promises God made to His people through His servant, Moses.
In these four promises God makes known His passion for His people, His purpose for His people and His plan for their lives and their nation!
We have based this study series around a book by Chris Hodges entitled "The Four Cups". Pastor Hodges founded and leads Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, Alabama. He is also the head of ARC - (Association of Related Churches) one of the most effective and influential church-planting movements in America.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who may be looking to refine or reshape the focus of your life OR for a church leader wanting a clear and compelling vision for his church.

Promises are only as valid as the one who makes them, right?
So, the reason Chris Hodges can write a book about these promises and build a church vision upon them is because GOD made these promises!
The reason we can spend an entire month preaching and studying these promises is because they were made by GOD!
A promise made by an eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing and loving God is a sure thing! A promise made by a God like this is done as soon as it is said!
God cannot break a promise that He makes! So, whether the promise was made 3,500 years ago or 35 seconds ago it doesn't matter! It is as good as done!
What are you building your life upon?
Is your foundation as sure as the promises of God?
