Psalm 89:33 (NKJV)
“Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not utterly take from him,
Nor allow My faithfulness to fail.”
As God’s children, sometimes we go through periods of unfaithfulness and rebellion against Him in our lives. We fight against God’s will for us when it’s only in our best interests to follow it.
But we have a faithful father. Even when we are rebelling against Him, He doesn’t give up on us! He lovingly corrects us and gives us another chance to do better. Of course we shouldn’t take God’s grace, mercy and faithfulness for granted, but isn’t it wonderful that even when we are being unfaithful to Him, God is still faithful to us? Even when life is not fair, God remains faithful. Even when we lack faith, He is still faithful (2 Tim 2:13). Hebrews 13:8 says “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” He never changes, isn’t that so amazing?
As Max Lucado said “God has proven himself as a faithful father. Now it falls to us to be trusting children.” Our response to God’s amazing faithfulness is for us to put our trust in Him without any reservations!
