Great is God’s Faithfulness
God’s faithfulness gives us confidence.
“My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart!” Psalm 108:1
Faithfulness is defined as: “constant; true to one’s word or promise”. This defines Our God! “The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; My God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.” Psalm 18:2
A Firm Foundation
“Who but our God is a solid rock?” (Psalm 18:31). God has not changed. In a world where everything is rapidly and constantly changing, God is like a solid, unchanging rock that we can stand on. God’s word is true and we can count on it because it is based in His faithful character. “The grass withers and the flowers fade but the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8) God does not make mistakes or change his mind. He is not swayed by public opinion. God is a firm foundation.
An Unfailing Love
“If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful, for he cannot deny who He is!” (2 Timothy 2:13) God’s love for us is unfailing because of His faithful character. “Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.” (Psalm 36:5)
An Anchor in the Storm
Clouds come and go, swept along by the wind. But the Bible says we must look beyond the clouds and see how consistent the stars, sun and moon are. We know the sun will rise in the east every morning and set in the west every evening. In the same way we can count on God to be true to His promises. When the storm clouds crowd in and doubts flood our minds, we must cling to the firm truth that God is Faithful! It will be an anchor to hold us steady through the rough seas of this life.
“So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.” (Hebrews 6:18-19).
Pray this week:
That God would open your eyes to be able to recognize how faithful He has been to you.
