He is Faithful // Chronicling the Lord's Faithfulness in Everything

Monday, May 7, 2018

"It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness." ~ Lamentations 3:22-23 KJV
Something I've been exploring recently is God's faithfulness.

Sometimes we think that the faithfulness that God exhibited in the Bible is not true for our everyday lives.

I mean look at some of the amazing stories of God's faithfulness...

There's God's promise to Abraham that he would have a son. Abraham and Sara thought it was too late for them to have children so they tried to take matters into their own hands. But still God proved faithful that He would do what He said He would do in His way and His time.
"Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised." (Hebrews 11:11 KJV)
There's the promise God made to the Israelite's that they would one day inherit a land "flowing with milk and honey" (Exodus 3:8). And even after the Israelite's rebelled, complained, and wandered in the desert for 40 years, God still kept His promise and brought them to the land.
"And he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, even a land that floweth with milk and honey." (Deuteronomy 26:9 KJV)
Those seem like two pretty big promises that God kept His Word on and followed through on in the Old Testament.

Today, I'm going to explore three ways that God is faithful in the life of a believer. So let's dive in!
God is faithful, not only in the way He saves us from our sins, but also in the way that we have eternal security.

 Anyone can come to God realizing his need for Him and get saved, no matter what that person has done in his past.

God has also promised us in the church age eternal security, which means that once we're saved, we'll always be saved, no matter what we do. It's one of the best promises in the Bible, that we can't lose our salvation based on what we do.
"And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it." (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 KJV)
Of course, we all will deal with temptations in life, but this is another area where God is faithful. God promises that whenever we face temptations (and we will because we live in this body of flesh), that He will always provide a way out. 
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV)
God forgives us at salvation, but He also promises to forgive us whenever we come to Him and confess our sins. As long as we confess that sin to Him, He is always faithful to forgive.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9 KJV)
Those are just three areas in a believer's life where God is faithful. There's many more.
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
The Lord has been so faithful to us; every single day I wake up He has new mercies!

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." ~ 2 Peter 3:9 KJV

What are some other ways that the Lord has been faithful to you?
