Great id thy Faithfulness!

Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentation 3:23

He is “a faithful God.” Deuteronomy 32:4

“And God is faithful.” 1 Corinthians 10:13

“He is faithful.” 1 John 1:9

“Your faithfulness surrounds you.” Psalm 89:8

We live in a world of broken promises. People don't mean what they say and they don't say what they mean. When they do say something they are going to do, they do not deliver on the promise. That is one of the reasons why there are so many active wars around the world. I have some great people in my life but neither one has been fully reliable at all times. The only One I know know who has been reliably persistent, consistently dependable, good and faithful to me is God. I am not trying to insult the people in my life. I am simply expressing a fact. They all have failed me one way or another because they are not perfect. The truth is I expected people to be dependable when I was younger. I used to require it or else I will cut people out of my life. It never occurred to me that I was asking for the impossible. I was asking for something I couldn't offer. Friend no matter what people say or do, they are not perfect. Despite good intentions they will let you down. I assure you.

In John 14:6 Jesus Christ said, “I am the truth.” and later on in John 18:37 he told Pilate, “I came into the world, to testify to the truth." Friend, because He is the truth, You can count on Him. You can be assured that He will do all that He says He would do. Listen, God will not fail you because He cannot fail, change, forget or disappoint. The only person you know who can meet every qualification is God himself. He alone is 100% faithful all the time. You can place your trust in others who undoubtedly will fail you or you can choose to trust the only One who cannot let you down. It is against His nature to lie. He is the truth.

Friend, if there was ever a time to rely on God it is now. The world is in chaos. The stock market keep taking in dive. The economy is not improving. People are dying of hunger all around us and there are many active wars all over the globe. Jesus Christ is the only shield. Thrust Him. He is faithful. Have you ever accepted Him as your personal Savior and trusted him as your Lord? I can assure you that inviting Christ into your heart is the single most important decision you could ever make. Dear friend, I am asking you to rely and trust the only trustworthy person I know.

And Father how grateful I am for your love! I am in awe of you. You are a faithful Father. Thank you for never let me down. Thank you for sending your son Jesus Christ to save me. It is in His holy name that I pray. Amen.

Praise the Lord!
