Have A Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! The Lord Thy God Is Faithful!!!
Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
Deuteronomy 7:10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.
Deuteronomy 7:11 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
As we all know there are people in this world that are not faithful with anything in their life. It seems that it is really hard for us to put confidence in any thing some people say or do. Have you ever known anyone like that?
I have met a few people that has lied to me so many times that I really had rather not hear any thing they have to say, because your just not sure if its true or not.
Unfaithfulness is one of the biggest sins of these days that we live in. In the business world, a man’s word is, with rare exceptions, no longer his bond. At one time many years ago, people would sign a contract with a handshake; not anymore.
But there is One that has never made a mistake, One that we can totally put our trust in and believe every thing He says whether we understand it or not. And that of coarse is our Great Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ, our Father, and Only true God.
He is faithful, faithful in all things, and faithful at all times.
Faithfulness is one of the glorious perfections of God.
He is as it were, clothed with it:
2Timothy 2:13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
Every thing that He has declared would happen, has come to pass exactly like He said it would, and every thing that has not come to pass as yet, is because it’s not His time for it to happen, but we can rest assured that what ever He has declared will at the set time.
Genesis 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
Genesis 15:14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
Genesis 15:15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.
Genesis 15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
And when that generation finally came about, Abraham’s descendants groaned and cried out to God to deliver them from the awful burden that the Egyptians had laid on them and guess what, God had not forgot His promise, because He is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
But there may be times that our faith is tried,
There could be any number of things that might happen and cause heartache and sorry to come our way. The things of the world might distract us, or maybe some of our friends on whom we had confidence in have failed us, a professed brother or sister in Christ has let us down, such as this will certainly bring us to a low point in our Christian life.– We have tried to be faithful to God, and now a dark cloud hides Him from us it seems.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
If we should ever be tempted to doubt the faithfulness of God let us cry out, “Get thee hence, Satan.” Because that is Satan job, he knows that he can’t damn our soul, so he wants to make us as miserable as he can, he knows that a doubting Christian can not be very effective for God. Satan placed doubt in Eves mind as to the Word of God.
God has never forsaken nor deceived His children; He may very well be testing us.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
God has not only told us the best, but He has also faithfully described the ruin, which the Fall of man has effected.
He has faithfully told us the terrible state which sin has produced. He has faithfully made known His hatred of evil, and that He must punish the same.
He has faithfully warned us that He is “a consuming fire” (Heb. 12:29).
Not only does His Word give us many illustrations of His faithfulness in fulfilling His promises, but it also records many examples of His faithfulness in making good His threatenings.
Every stage of Israel’s backslidden condition through out her history reveals that solemn fact.
And the same was true with individuals:
Such as, Pharaoh, Korah, Achan and many others that show His faithfulness to judge their wickedness.
And the same faithful judgment will be with any that are listening today that are lost, unless you come to Jesus Christ for refuge, the everlasting burning of the Lake of Fire will be the final abode for lost sinners, God has already said so and He is faithful.
God is faithful in disciplining His people as is told in Heb.12:. He is faithful in sending sorrow as well as in giving joy.
The faithfulness of God is a truth to be confessed by all that are saved, not only of our mouths, but also of our hearts.
When sicknesses come our way, lets not be at outs with God, what ever our sickness or affliction might be, He is still faithful.
Many times afflictions are necessary,
“Affliction” is anything causing pain or distress.- to undergo hardship- suffer trouble
“Affliction” is not necessarily being sick, although sickness could bring it about.
Paul was resting on the faithfulness of God when he said,
2Timothy 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
FAITH IS THE VICTORY
Encamped along the hills of light,
Ye Christian soldiers rise,
And press the battle ere the night
Shall veil the glowing skies;
Against the foe in vales below
Let all our strength be hurled;
Faith is the victory, we know,
That overcomes the world. Faith is the victory!
Faith is the victory!
O glorious victory,
That overcomes the world.
His banner over us is love,
Our sword the Word of God;
We tread the road the saints before
With shouts of triumph trod.
By faith, they like a whirlwind’s breath,
Swept on o’er every field;
The faith by which they conquered death
Is still our shining shield.
On every hand the foe we find
Drawn up in dread array;
Let tents of ease be left behind,
And onward to the fray.
Salvation’s helmet on each head,
With truth all girt about,
The earth shall tremble ’neath our tread,
And echo with our shout.
To him that overcomes the foe,
White raiment shall be giv’n;
Before the angels he shall know
His name confessed in heav’n;
Then onward from the hills of light,
Our hearts with love aflame,
We’ll vanquish all the hosts of night,
In Jesus’ conqu’ring name
Love and Prayers
