God’s Faithfulness is Not On Trial

The bottom line is—God’s faithfulness is not on trial, nor should it ever be. God is faithful.

If we ever doubt His faithfulness—it’s not God who needs to be questioned—quite the contrary—we have only to look at our own heart and soul—questioning ourselves about our unbelief.

God continuously comes through—maybe not always when or what we want, but He does come through.

I know there are times when we can’t see or feel God’s faithfulness, but that does not contradict the truth about who He is.

If we ever find our self pummeled by the unforeseen—in a place of suffering—that leads to questioning His trustworthiness—we must simply believe what we can’t see—but know to be true.

Hebrews 11:1 tells us,

 Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

We step into God’s faithfulness by faith—faith is believing what we cannot see. We trust what we know is truth—the Bible says God is faithful—therefore by faith—I believe.

It takes faith to apprehend God’s faithfulness.

The evidence of what we believe is seen in who God is and in what He has done for us and others.

God is not human therefore He is perfect.

Numbers 23:19 says,

God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

Have you ever met anyone so faithful? Humans lie and change their mind—humans disappoint—God never does.

James 1:17 expresses truth,

Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.

Psalm 121 straightforwardly states the God who watches over us never slumbers or sleeps.  Hebrews 13:8 says, He’s the same yesterday today and forever!

Be encouraged to seek and rest in God’s faithfulness—you will never be disappointed.

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. Psalm 33:4

  1. I am so thankful for your messages. I cling to them. I get such a ton of useless email but when I see THIRSTY I stop and cannot wait to read your words. I found you through Carl Tuttle. I lost three daughters and the last my precious Maria did me in. I want so to be in love with Jesus again but I am so devoid of feeling.

    1. Susanne my heart aches with yours.
      The amazing thing about loving Jesus is that feelings are not required. Love is a choice. In His faithfulness He always meets us where we are. He’s the author of love–we can love Him because of His love for us. On our own we can’t work up this kind of love, we need Him to fill us. Keep the eyes of your heart (your faith) on Him and in His faithfulness He will fill your broken heart with His healing love. Praying for you.
