GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL

It is important to remember that God is always faithful, no matter what happens.

  • Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands. (Deuteronomy 7:9).
  • For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does (Psalm 33:4).
  • The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving towards all he has made (Psalm 145:13).
  • The Lord remains faithful for ever (Psalm 146:6)
  • The Lord, who is faithful has chosen you (Isaiah 49:7).
  • And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear (I Corinthians 10:13).
  • But the Lord is faithful and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one (2 Thessalonians 3:3).
  • If we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself (2 Timothy 2:13).
  • Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful (Hebrews 10:23).

 

In these passages, the profound truth that God is faithful is stressed. Note that the quotations come from the Law, the Psalms, the Prophets and the New Testament. This is an everlasting and universal truth. No matter what happens, God is still with us. Even if we appear to fail, he does not!
