“Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;”
Deuteronomy 7:9 NKJV
One of my very favorite things about God is that He is faithful. Whenever He makes a promise He keeps it.
God said it, l believe it, and that settles it.
“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”
Numbers 23:19 NKJV
The bible assures us of God’s faithfulness time and time again. This means that when life gets hard, we mess up, He is still there, loving us.
God is still faithful even when we are not.
Do you remember the story of Daniel in the Lions Den? God was faithful to Daniel whenever He closed the lion’s mouth.
What about the time when God kept Moses safe as he floated down the Nile River in a basket?
God was faithful then and He is faithful now.
Another example in the Bible of God’s faithfulness is Abraham.
God promises Abraham that through his line all the earth would be blessed and instructs him to leave where he was and go to a place He would tell him.
That place became known as the Promised Land.
In the same way, God is faithful to us because He stays true to His promises. God always holds up His end of the deal.
“The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think.
No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.”
2 Peter 3:9 NLT
What promise has God kept to you?
“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.”
II Corinthians 1:20 NKJV
The year “2020” has really been a roller coaster due to Covid-19, but God has kept His promises by being faithful to the end.
May be you have lost so much, or couldn’t accomplish anything, and as a result you have lost hope and your faith and trust in God is no longer as strong as it used to be.
I encourage you to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, faithful is He Who has promised and He will deliver.
Faithfulness is not something God does, it is who He is.
Your latter days cannot help but be greater than your former day, because the Glory of God will rain upon you and touch every aspect of your life.
Even though in a couple of weeks, we will close down the curtain on “2020”, there is still plenty of time for God to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.
“But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
II Peter 3:8 NKJV
“You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.”
Psalms 65:11 NKJV
God is too faithful to fail you.
God is too faithful to disappoint you.
God is faithful to the end.
May the faithfulness of God abound in your life, now and forever. Amen!
