The Faithfulness of God
Faithful is defined as steadfast and firm.
“Your word, Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations.” Psalm 119:89-90
How can we learn to trust and lean into the faithful, steadfastness of God?
In the Psalm that we just read, we learned that faithfulness is equated to the Word. What does this mean for us? Well, if God spoke something thousands of years ago, has it changed or evolved? No, it is steadfast. His word is never-ending truth.
When we speak of God’s character, He is truthful, He is steadfast and He is faithful. Since his character is faithful and He is truthful, His word is unchanged. Even thousands of years later, His Word remains unchanged.
“For I am the Lord, I do not change;
Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.” Malachi 3:6
Even though we often are unfaithful to our Lord, He remains faithful to us and keeps the promises that he has made to us.
If we are faithless,
He remains faithful;
He cannot deny Himself. 2 Timothy 2:13
How do we learn to understand faithfulness as a Fruit of the Spirit and learn to trust in Him?
The more we study his Word and get to know just WHO our Heavenly Father is, the more we can grasp just how good, just how loving, and just how faithful that he is.
- He never changes
- He never lies
- He has never failed
There is a constant battle between the flesh and the Holy Spirit. The world pulls in one direction while the Holy Spirit pulls us closer to God. It is important to spend time in his Word learning to distinguish the Lord’s voice from other noise.
