Did you know that the Hebrew word for faithful means firm, steady, truth? And the Greek word in the New Testament is translated believing, sure, true? And this can mean both God being faithful to us or us being faithful to Him.
Deuteronomy 32:4 says, "He is the Rock, His works are perfect, and all His ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is He.
Psalm 33:4, "For the word of the Lord is right and true; He is faithful in all He does."
I don't know about you but I claim these truths. Every word God speaks is truth. And He is faithful to protect us and the lives of our loved ones. He is my shield.
Psalm 40:11, " Do not withhold your mercy from me, Lord; may Your love and faithfulness always protect me. "
He has everything planned out even when we doubt.
Isaiah 25:1, "Lord, you are my God; I will exalt You and praise Your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago."
God's word stands firmly planted. It never changes.
Titus 1:9, "He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it."
When we go through hardship, do we remain faithful? Do we doubt? I know I have done that. Well He continues to love us no matter what we have done and listens to our prayers. We can share our heart with Him.
Some days we just need to put one foot in front of the other and remain true and steadfast. Holding dear the truths promised. Think of Sarah and Abraham waiting for years, into old age, for a child. But God promised and they waited, they doubted at times BUT God was faithful and blessed them abundantly.
Remain faithful dear friend. Wait patiently for His answer. Don't panic because He has it covered, do not fret. Pray to Him and tell Him your concerns and then leave it there.
Lord bless, Nicki
