He Who is faithful

None is faithful like the LORD GOD.

Deuteronomy 7:9 NKJV — “Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;

His faithfulness is evident in the whole of creation.

His work on behalf of mankind testifies to His unwavering love.

He cared for Abraham and set him apart to be the lineage of Jesus Christ.

God’s promise to Abraham was also a promise to save mankind from sin.

He didn’t stop there. God knew without instruction, mankind wouldn’t even acknowledge their need to be saved from sin.

God taught Israel (Abraham’s grandson) and through his twelve sons built the twelve tribes which all were a foreshadowing of things to come.

God drew the World’s attention when He brought Moses and Aaron to bring the children of Israel out of Egypt.

He proved no man, not even the most powerful ruler can stand in the way of God and His promises.

Psalm 119:138 NKJV — Your testimonies, which You have commanded, Are righteous and very faithful.

God was faithful to lead the Israelites out of bondage. He gave them the Ten Commandments, and the first books of the Bible, to bring them understanding.

God’s faithfulness continued in His patience with these children of Israel. Through them He would save the whole world from sin.

At the appointed time, God’s Son, Jesus came. God in flesh. Another testimony to God’s faithfulness.

1 Corinthians 1:9 NKJV — God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

After Jesus rose from the dead and instructed the disciples, the church was born on Pentecost.

God’s faithfulness continued, He sent His Spirit to guide, teach, and direct.

2 Thessalonians 3:3 NKJV — But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.

And He’s still working.

For those who believe in Jesus and are called according to His purposes, our greatest joy is to walk in His will daily.

Hebrews 10:23 NKJV — Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

God knows us better than we know ourselves. He realizes we are sinful and at times overcome by it.

2 Timothy 2:13 NKJV — If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.

But He promises…

1 John 1:9 NKJV — If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

God, Himself, picks us up, washes us off, and holds our hand in loving correction, because He is faithful.

I can testify that God is faithful.

He has been throughout my entire life.

I know He will continue to be.

His Word says so:

Hebrews 13:5 NKJV — Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

This week I’m going to focus on the incredible attributes of God.

Faithfulness is today’s.

These Scriptures and Bible stories are some of the ways I’m remembering how faithful God is.

I’m also purposing to rummage in my memories, to look at even the moments of pain through the lens of God’s faithfulness.

How has God been faithful to you?
