But God is faithful. (1Co 10:13) Now there’s a promise you can stand on when your world has been shaken.
Jesus said: “Heaven and earth shall pass away; but my words shall not pass away.” Luke 21:33.
In a world of uncertainty you can sing an old hymn: “On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.”
Your job, your health, your relationships and your investments are all “sinking sand.” But God’s faithfulness is as solid as a rock.
He will be faithful to you in the delivery room, in the operating room, in the care home, the unemployment line, the work place, in fact everywhere you may find yourself.
The Psalmist wrote (Ps 27:13-14): “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
“Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart.”
Focusing on God’s faithfulness will keep you from falling apart, giving up, having a nervous breakdown or losing your mind.
Be honest; hasn’t God been better to you than you’ve been to Him? Hasn’t He been faithful when you’ve been unfaithful, and consistent when you’ve been inconsistent?
When God gives you a gift, He doesn’t take it back. When He makes you a promise, He won’t break it.
Even when Abraham died, God remembered His promise and blessed his children down through the generations.
“For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” Rom 11:29
Why is this important to know? Because when you begin to see God’s faithfulness to you, it will make you want to be faithful to Him.
Here is another promise God makes to you. Romans 10 v13 says: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
