I have seen and declared God’s faithfulness. I have given testimony to His amazing provision. And, shortly afterward, I have wondered whether He will, indeed, continue to provide for my needs.
Yes, I’ve known His manifold blessings. But that was yesterday. Will He come through tomorrow? I am sometimes doubtful.
Yet, I don’t think I’m the only one who has struggled with this. I have heard from too many others who, in moments of candidness, have shared similar stories. We humans seem to have a tendency to lean toward being mercurial: changeable, fickle, flighty.
The Lord, on the other hand, isn’t like that. He is unchanging. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) “God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” (Numbers 23:19)
And one of my all-time favorite passages of Scripture: “If we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself.” (2 Timothy 2:13)
Do not fear. God is faithful.
