God is Faithful

          Information comes at us from all angles – television, radio, Facebook, word-of-mouth, books…sometimes it is difficult to process what is the most reliable source. One news anchor gives a certain “fact,” while an online article disputes that information and offers an alternative view. How do we know who to trust?
          Regardless of what is going on in society, we can always rely on the trustworthiness of God. James teaches us, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1:17). We can trust God to follow through on His promises.
          He was faithful to Israel. “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” (Deuteronomy 7:9).
          He is faithful to provide for His children. “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
          He is faithful to fulfill His promises in eternity. “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:9).
          The Psalmist recognized the might and fidelity of Jehovah. “O Lord God of hosts, who is mighty like You, O Lord? Your faithfulness also surrounds You” (Psalm 89:8).
          Man will lie. News reports may mislead. Facebook articles may distort the truth. Key facts are omitted in word-of-mouth. Don’t believe everything you hear or read in the world. But you can always believe God and His Word.
          It is a great blessing to be able to serve the One who rules over everything, the One who will never change or turn against us, the One who will keep His Word. God is faithful!
