The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made. The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down (Psalm 145:14).
Have you ever had a relationship with someone who was faithful? You knew you could depend on that person to do what they said. You learned that their word was completely trustworthy. If they said they would call you, they would. If they said they'd be somewhere at a certain time, they'd be there. In fact, if they were late you began to wonder if they had an accident because it was so contrary to their nature. It's great to have friends who are faithful.
God is faithful. He is faithful to fulfill every promise in His Word. Sometimes we think God isn't faithful because it appears he has not fulfilled a desire that we have. Sometimes we think He is not faithful because of a crisis event that seems to say God isn't faithful. We must remember that God is more concerned about accomplishing His ultimate purpose in the life of every believer rather than giving us the desire of our heart. Sometimes this results in hardship.
The Bible is full of accounts of the faithfulness of God that was often accompanied with hardship. He brought Joseph out of slavery to be greatly used in a nation. He delivered the people from Egypt and brought them into the Promised Land. He gave Abraham the son of promise late in his life. He delivered David from His enemies and made him a king. In story upon story we learn of the faithfulness of God.
Are you a faithful man or woman? The marketplace needs faithful men and women. Take an inventory of your life today and ask God if you have been faithful with what He has entrusted to you.
