Tag Archives: God’s faithfulness

“Now behold, today I am going the way of all the earth, and you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one word of all the good words which the LORD your God spoke concerning you has failed; all have been fulfilled for you, not one of them has failed.”  (Joshua 23:14, NASB)

As he neared the end of his life, Joshua spoke those words to the Children of Israel; and reminded them of the Lord’s faithfulness to them and to their ancestors.

The same may be said of us today: Not one of God’s promises has failed — ever!  Really.

Look back over the years of your life.  Remember illnesses, failures, difficulties in personal relationships, trials at work, and dark times.  Remember how God delivered you — and others with you.  Remember how when deliverance was not His plan for you, He stood with you, even when others had gone.

Therefore, resolve to trust Him in everything.  Hold nothing back.  God honors his word.  He keeps His promises.  He will never leave us or forsake us.  – Luther

“Why, Lord, do you stand far off?  Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?”  (Psalm 10:1, NIV)

There are times in life, as the psalmist in today’s scripture states, when it seems that God has departed on vacation; or is asleep; or is indifferent to our suffering.  But don’t be fooled: God has not forgotten us, nor has He deserted us.

In such times, we need only reflect on our own personal history with our heavenly Father: The times when we thought Him late, but He was already at the point of decision — waiting.  The times when we thought Him absent, but only because He was standing behind us. . . out of view. . . guarding our blind side.  The times when we thought He was indifferent to our suffering, but He sent others to encourage us, to comfort us, to hold us; to hear us; and to wipe our tears.

No one loves us like our heavenly Father.  No one.  – Luther
