The Faithfulness of God

To even start to think about the faithfulness of God is a challenging thing. To step out on faith and say “God, I know that you will provide even when I feel like i can’t see you or feel you” is a scary thought. Our human nature tells us “You need a 2 car garage with expensive cars filling them with a 2 story house with flat screens for everyone. Xbox 360’s and ps3’s for all the children and a man cave for dad and a walk in closet for mom.” I say no. Actually, the bible shows us that as christians this should not be our thought process.Psalm 37:4 says “delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart” If we are taking in Jesus. If we are completely saturated with Christ then the desire of our heart should be Christ and Christ alone. “My heart will sing no other name. Jesus, Jesus!” this should be more than a worship song it should be our hearts cry! Notice that the song doesn’t say “My heart will sing Jesus on sunday and money, cars, and the american dream every other day” Am i saying go out and sell everything you have and live under a bridge and have a lifestyle that would make John the Baptist look like a light weight? No. I’m saying let God prove His faithfulness to you! Read Hebrews chapter 11 and see the faithfulness of God to His children. Psalm 37:25 says “I have been young, and now am old. yet i have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread” God’s promise to us is that if we are faithful to Him, He will be faithful to us. “The steps of a man are established by the Lord, WHEN he delights in His way.” Psalm 37:23. When we delight ourselves in the Lord our steps will be established by Him. God bless
