God Is Faithful

"Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me..."

This morning during my Jesus Moment - what I call my daily time of prayer and meditation - I asked the Lord to speak to my heart and show me how I could be a blessing to His people today.  Once I stilled myself in His presence, He gently whispered "Remind my people of my faithfulness."  I knew it was the Lord, because thoughts of God's faithfulness have flooded my heart this week.

Over the past few days, my mind has drifted back to those times when I found myself stuck between a rock and a hard place...those times when pain and trouble were so deep I couldn't see a way out.  I reminisced on the seasons when it seemed God had completely forgotten about me, and I had reached the end of my rope. My thoughts took me back to that place where I had prayed and cried,  and worried and stressed, trying to figure out how situations would work out in my life.

As I sat reflecting over my trying times, I realized something - God came through for me. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Without fail, He came to my rescue, met me at my point of need, and held true to His promises to me in His Word.  Whether the situation was great or small, something I'd brought upon myself or occurred from being tried in the fire, even when I'd been faithless, the Lord has always been faithful to be and do all that I have needed.

Worry is a natural reaction when situations grow beyond your ability to solve them.  When what you see, or feel, shows you that the thing you're dealing with is bigger than you, it's easy to panic and believe that there's no solution to your problem.  And sometimes, no matter how much you pray, because your problem seems so enormous, you forget that God is all-powerful and there is absolutely nothing He can't handle or fix. Once you have tried everything you know to do - that didn't help - you feel like there's nothing else that can be done to bring the resolve you need.

But wait, don't give up just yet.

Before you stress yourself another day, think about this:  Has God ever failed to come to your rescue? Has His mercy and grace ever failed to cover you?  Has His hand of provision ever failed to meet your need?  Has He ever failed to keep a promise?  Has He ever failed to answer your call?  Has He ever left you alone?

If you answer truthfully, you will see that God has always been faithful to you...and He forever will be.  There's no need in worrying when the God you serve has a track record that lacks any ounce of inconsistency.  Even if it's at the ninth hour, God will always prove Himself to be faithful.  He is totally incapable of letting you down.

God is reliable. God is trustworthy. God is consistent. You need only trust him.

In your marriage...

In your health...

In your pain...

In your struggle...

In your finances...

In your ministry...

In the call upon your life...

In every single thing that concerns you...

Great is the faithfulness of our infallible God.

Here are a few scriptures to remind you of the Lord's great faithfulness:

"Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass." 1 Thessalonians 5:24, NASB

"God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord."  1 Corinthians 1:9, NLT

"For the Lord your God is a compassionate God; He will not fail you nor destroy you nor forget the covenant with your fathers which He swore to them." Deuteronomy 4:31, NASB

"Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands." Deuteronomy 7:9, NLT

"God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?" Numbers 23:19, NLT

"For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the Lord, who has mercy on you." Isaiah 54:10, NLT

"For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us." 2 Corinthians 1:20, KJV

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10:23, NKJV

Today, may you be reminded that God is faithful.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Hi LaKeisha,

    I believe this message was for me. The enemy is trying his best to make me doubt God. I wish I could stop worrying about things out of my control. However, the tears just can't seem to stop flowing, and it feels like God has abandoned me in my time of need. I'm trying to stand strong in my faith, hold on to his promises, and to just trust God. Thanks for all of your wonderful posts on this blog. Your words are such an encouragement to me.


    1. Hi Charity!

      So glad to know this ministered to you. God has not abandoned you. He sees every tear, He hears every prayer, and He knows every need. At the appointed time, He will move by His power in your life. Keep your hope in Him. He will not fail you.

      Love & Prayers,

  2. Thanks for posting. Just what I needed. God is faithful even when we aren't and for that I am incredibly thankful!

    1. Yes, Mell! Even when we are faithless, He remains faithful to us. Such a merciful God!

  3. Thankyou so much for the reassurance I know my Heavenly Father and I know He is forever faithful but being able to read these specific verses from the word will help strengthen my faith.I will keep them close and implant them in my heart.

    1. The Word of God is where we find strength, hope, and assurance. May your faith be strengthened as you hide His word in your heart. Love you, Sharon!

  4. Beautifully written. Every now and then, God gently reminds us that He is ever present. That's what this post has done for me. Whenever I can't seem to "trace" Him, I try to remember David's words in Psalm 77:1-12. David felt forsaken many times in his life and didn't understand why God allowed certain things to happen. I encourage everyone to read this Psalm and pay close attention to how David decides to respond to his situation in v. 10-12.


I appreciate your comment. Peace and Blessings to you!
