Begin with God … He Is Faithful
In the Word
Will God always be faithful?
The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made (Psalm 145:13b).
Of the Word
We live in a world that is not always faithful. Spouses are unfaithful, children are rebellious, families are torn apart. Human love that was pledged does not last.
But God is different. He comes to us and says, “I am always here. I will never leave your side.” The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made (Psalm 145:13b).
God never finds someone He loves more nor does He run off and leave us alone. Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations … (Psalm 119:89–90a).
God’s Word is eternal … it will last forever. He has been faithful to those who came before us and will be faithful to those who come after us. His words and promises are unchanging. God is aware of the heartbreaks life brings. He knows when we have challenges in our health or work or family. To lighten our burdens He calls us to come to Jesus for the help He promises.
God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9). No matter what we face in life, we can depend on God. He is faithful.
Walking with my Lord
Faithful God, I am grateful that I can depend on You at all times and in all circumstances. Forgive me for the times when I have been unfaithful to You and to others. Help me to remember that Your faithfulness is forever. Send Your Holy Spirit to strengthen me. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
