Yes, I spelled it that way on purpose. And yes, two years ago I wrote a similar blog post when I was blogging for Southern.
But it’s definitely worth revisiting.
This morning I was reading through Ps. 89. It chronicles God’s faithfulness to the covenant relationship with His people.
I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known Thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: Thy faithfulness shalt Thou establish in the very heavens.
Today we live in a world that expects unfaithfulness. In fact, if you claim to be faithful, people assume you’re lying. Trust can be broken in a thousand new ways. But in all of this, God is screaming His faithfulness to you. From the moment you were born, to today–He has been faithful. When every one else chooses to leave. He’s been there. His faithfulness is more than just staying. His faithfulness is faithfulness to His character. He is faithful to His word. He is faithful to the love He has for you. He’s faithful to His mercy. He is faithful to His compassion. He is faithful to His justice.
His faithfulness doesn’t always equal deliverance. His faithfulness doesn’t mean everything will make sense. His faithfulness doesn’t mean no storms will come. His faithfulness doesn’t mean you’ll always win. His faithfulness doesn’t mean getting everything you want.
It does mean receiving good things. It does mean that though ten thousand fall at your right hand, He will hold you up. It does mean that He will do what is best for you. It does mean that He doesn’t change when everything is falling apart. It does mean that He will never let you down. It does mean that He doesn’t leave.
He is faithfull. Remember that.
