God’s Truth Makes Him Faithful

‘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

We live in a world full of broken promises. From workplaces to marriages there are people suffering from broken promises and unfulfilled commitments.  A person’s word has no merit when it comes to contracts and legal documents.  Unkept promises make for a very frustrating life.

When we learn about the truth of God we know that faithfulness is part of His character.  It’s what makes Him God. He keeps His word because He is faithful.  If God were not faithful, we could not be saved nor would there be any reason to pray and absolutely no hope for the future.

To say that God is faithful we must realize that what He speaks is the truth.  He says what He means and means what He says.  His word never fails or falters.  His promises will always come to pass.  2 Corinthians 1:20 says, “For all the promises of God find their Yes in Him. That is why it is through Him that we utter our Amen to God for His Glory.”  If God says it we can count on it.

Sometimes when we face trials in our life we tend to think that God has either forgotten about us or He doesn’t care what happens to us.  That is far from the truth and we must change the way we view God’s character.  God loves His children and He is faithful in every aspect known to man.

Pray

Lord, thank You for keeping Your promises. I know that You can only be the Truth. As I rely on Your word for hope and joy, let me never forget Your faithfulness.

He Is God

“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

Faithfulness is part of God’s character. He keeps every promise because He is faithful and true. If God were not faithful, we could not be saved nor would there be any reason to pray and have hope.

God has proved His faithfulness by staying true to His word. God will never let you down.

We live in a world of broken promises. There are people suffering from broken promises and unfulfilled commitments. A person’s word is no longer considered good enough to keep a contract. Unkept promises make for a frustrating life.

There are times in our life when we face trials so challenging that we tend to think that God has forgotten about us or that He doesn’t care about what happens in our circumstances. That is not God’s character.

God loves you and He is faithful in every aspect known to man. He knows and cares about what you are facing.

Sometimes we tend to have an earthly perspective of God. We almost try to bring God down to our level. That is a big mistake.

God’s thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are higher than our ways. (Isaiah 55:8) The next time you face a difficult situation just remember that God is faithful to His word. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will never give up on you. He will never let the enemy devour you. He will never stop loving you.

Pray

Lord, thank you for always keeping your promises. Your words are faithful and true. Help me to always remember that You will never fail me.

Faithful God

Faithful God

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,
Deuteronomy 7:9

Every Word Matters

We live in a world of broken promises. From the workforce to marriages there are people suffering from broken promises and unfulfilled commitments.  A person’s word has no merit when it comes to contracts and legal documents.  Unkept promises make for a frustrating life.

He keeps every promise because He is faithful.  If God were not faithful, we could not be saved nor would there be any reason to pray and absolutely no hope for the future.  We live in faith knowing that God is faithful and true.

To say that God is faithful we must realize that what He says is the truth.  He says what He means and means what He says.  His word never fails or falters.  His promises will always be kept.  2 Corinthians 1:20 says, “For all the promises of God find their Yes in Him.

Prayer

Show the Lord that you trust His faithfulness by praising Him in every circumstance you face whether it is good or bad.
