“Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.”
Our God is a God of faithfulness. He has shown this throughout the whole Bible. One of the most well-known examples of this is in Genesis 15:5 when God promised Abraham that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars. God was faithful to that promise, even though it seemed impossible, and Abraham soon found himself with a son, Isaac. This is only one example of many. So, my point is that time and time again God has shown us His faithfulness. Whenever we need someone to cry out to, He always right there for us. (Psalm 62:8) Whenever we go through trials, He is right there to help us through them. (Deut. 31:8) He is always ready to forgive us when we make mistakes. (1 John 1:9) He is with us in good times and bad. He is a faithful God.
Deuteronomy 7:9 says, “Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.” God is always faithful to us, but do we always trust in His faithfulness? How many times have we done things our own way instead of trusting in God? How many times have we tried to fix things on our own instead of letting God fix them? The list goes on. I know for myself that every time I have done things my own way instead of trusting in God, I have regretted it later. God wants us to trust in His faithfulness. Psalm 37:3 says, “Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.” God doesn’t want us to just know of His faithfulness, He wants us to feed on it. He wants that to be what makes us thrive. He wants us to accept with open arms the fact that He will never fail us. So the next time you’re about to take matters into your own hands, decide to trust in God. His faithfulness will never cease to amaze you just as it has me.
