He Keeps His Promises

"Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses." - 1 Kings 8:56

During the autumn of 2000, a U.S. company began selling an action figure called "Invisible Jim" in Great Britain for about $2.80 apiece. Why was it called ''Invisible Jim?'' Because all you got was the packaging. There was no Jim action figure doll.

The advertising boasted that "Jim" had a ''lack of darting eyes'', possessed "non-gripping hands" and ''realistic fake hair.'' Some of the boasts on the box were that ''as not seen on TV'' and the ''camouflage suit sold separately.''

Hurst Marler, the company, who distributed the non-doll, says they have received no complaints about the empty boxes. "Invisible Jim" was pitched as an alternative greeting card. The packaging -- printed cardboard wrapped in a clear plastic cover -- costs about 10 cents to make.

When it was first introduced, the company fielded calls from customers complaining the doll was missing from their box. But once they got the joke, the interest took off and the media picked up on the spoof and helped improve Invisible Jim's marketability.

With God, there are no empty promises. He keeps His word in all of His promises. Today in prayer, praise the Lord that He is faithful in all things and place your trust in Him.

"God never made a promise that was too good to be true." - D.L. Moody

God's Word: "God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?" - Numbers 23:19
