God Is Faithful
We live in troubling times. There is so much unrest and hatred in this world of ours. It’s easy to get discouraged and fearful. When we keep our eyes on God, life is not only more manageable, but we can have joy and peace in Him! The Second Letter to the Thessalonians in the New Testament says “But the LORD is faithful, he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.” I looked up the definition of faithful and found this:
strict or thorough in the performance of duty:
a faithful worker.
true to one’s word, promises, vows, etc.
steady in allegiance or affection; loyal; constant:
reliable, trusted, or believed.
adhering or true to fact, a standard, or an original; accurate:
a faithful account; a faithful copy.
So we can say the LORD is true to his word.
The LORD is steady in his affection for us.
The LORD can be trusted.
Really, God Is Faithful
So let these words sink deep into your heart. We need to keep reminding ourselves no matter what is happening around us or in our bodies that God doesn’t change. His love for us is never-ending. It’s a mind-boggling thing that the creator of the universe loves us and wants to spend time with us. Sometimes I forget in the midst of a new diagnosis, or a looming bill, that God holds me in the palm of His hand and everything will be okay in the end.
You can trust your heavenly Father, because he is trustworthy. Everything will be restored and made right when we are living with Him in heaven.
Finally, have you ever heard the phrase “you can bank on it?” According to the Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang, “since the late 1950’s the phrase means ‘to be absolutely assured of something.’ ” So, we can bank on the love and protection of God! In fact, God is more dependable today than our banks!
