God Is Always Faithful

faithful GodIf I’m honest, I have times of tremendous faith as well as times of plaguing doubt. I’m confident and I’m wavering. I trust completely and I wonder.

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.

    Your post reminded me of how even John the Baptist wavered—-he went from “Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” to sending his disciples to ask, “Are you the One, or do we look for another?”

    Dear Tom,

    This post was perfect timing. I’m going through a struggle at the church I serve in and it seems change is coming; in fact it kept me awake last night as scenarios ran in my mind. Thank you for this reminder that God is faithful even when I have my doubts about the future.

    Brian
