The Scriptures abound with declarations that God is faithful. Since we live in a world that is constantly changing and face many disappointments along the way, it is reassuring to be reminded of the faithfulness of God. One definition of the word faithful is “worthy of trust,” and this is certainly applicable to God because He has repeatedly proven that His word is sure and that He can be trusted.
“Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” ~~Lamentations 3:23
The Apostle Paul reminds us that God cannot lie. Because He is holy it is impossible for Him to declare anything but truth or make any promise that will not be kept. It may seem to us at times that God has forgotten us. David experienced such a doubt but then admitted he had spoken in haste. We must remember that God works on His own timetable and just because we do not see immediate evidence of His promise being fulfilled it does not mean He has forsaken us.
No matter how bleak your future may appear you can be assured that God’s promise is certain when He says, “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” In spite of your sufferings and trials you can have confidence that He will be with you and even use the difficulties to teach you and draw you closer to Him.
Because of God’s faithfulness you can have bright expectations. He will not let anything separate you from Him. He is keeping you by His power. Having begun a good work in you, He will not abandon it but will bring it to consummation so that one day you will be safe home to live with Him forever.
Have a wonderful day in the presence of our Faithful God.
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
