When our back is against the wall, and we want out of a situation, we cry to God and make promises to Him.
Don’t tell God what you’re going to do, and turn around and say, you didn’t mean it.
Keep your promise, or there are consequences.
It’s better not to make promises you can’t keep.
Ecclesiastes 5:4-6 (KJV) – when thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause they flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?
