And God is faithful
1 Corinthians 10:13
Have you ever promised to do something for someone & then neglected to do it? This can be a frustrating experience both for you and for the person you promised. You had every good intention to complete it but it just didn’t happen. Some people will experience this scenario frequently while others won’t. Your experience will come down to your ability to be faithful to what you promised.
Today’s verse gives us a window into the character & nature of God. We’re told by the Apostle Paul that “God is faithful”. In addition to everything else Paul tells us about God he’s ensuring that we understand that God will never let us down. NEVER, EVER!!! For us to understand this, we must understand that God is not like us [Numbers 23:9, Hebrews 6:8, Isaiah 55:8)
We can’t judge God’s behaviour by how we’d act in similar circumstances (2 Timothy 2:13). If we’re feeling inadequate, He is our sufficiency. If we’re feeling trapped, He is our freedom. If we’re feeling sad, He is our joy. Even when we’re unfaithful, God is ALWAYS FAITHFUL. Everything God has promised He will complete (Philippians 1:6) because He is faithful.
This week let’s get ourselves out of God’s way so His faithfulness can enter into our lives. Let’s stop making excuses & apologies as to why God cannot do what’s needed in our lives. Let’s take the promises that God has given us in His Word, believe them and let the Faithful One work on us to produce them in our lives (1 Thessalonians 5:24).
