God is Faithful
“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens. I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah. And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Lord: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints. For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?” Psalm 89:1-8
This is no new revelation. Every believer agrees that God is faithful. We know that because from the beginning of our salvation we have read about it and been taught and heard of God’s faithfulness to His people in many parts of the world and we have experienced His faithfulness in our lives. In fact, probably more than we have acknowledged.
The question we are often tempted to ask now is, will God be faithful to meet my need today? Each day offers new needs, new tests and new hopes. Each day has its unknowns that we are not always prepared to respond to, but God is faithful. We can count on it because we can count on Him!.
The Resurrection is proof of His faithfulness. He completed the full sacrifice for our salvation! He was faithful to the end and now we have a way to LIFE through what He has done.
“Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.” Joshua 21:45
We serve the same God. And He is the same today as He was with Israel and as He will be with us through all eternity. [Hebrews 13:8] We can rest in the assurance that whatever the day holds, God holds us and the day in the palm of His hand and He will not let us go. He will not abandon us to our circumstances nor leave us to fend for ourselves while He looks on uninvolved or disengaged. He remains faithful to His word and to the defense of our cause.
“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9
He maybe rejected by others, but we have His assurance that our trust in Him will not be disappointed because He is faithful. There is a greater question for us. “Will we be found faithful when He returns?” As we worship Him, we acknowledge His faithfulness. As we yield ourselves to His will our faith in Him is strengthened. The more we know Him the more we trust Him. The more faithful we become, the more His faithfulness is realized in our lives.
Will God fulfill His promises? Unquestionably, Yes! Why? Because, He is faithful.
