Unfaithful Men, Faithful God

Updated on May 9, 2017

At all Times

Whenever I go through difficult times in my life, I hold on to God's promises, knowing that his faithfulness will not fail me. Yes, those hard times of loneliness, despair, fear, anger, and those times when no one seems to understand, I wait on Him. For the years I have served Him, I have waited upon the Lord. I can say that He has not and will not fail me.

Perhaps, you are going through a difficult time right now. Maybe you feel like giving up. You have searched everywhere for an answer to your pain and have found none. Let me tell you that His word says to come to Him and in Him, you will find rest.


Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT)

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

Bible verses about His faithfulness

Deuteronomy 7:9 (NLT)

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.



Hebrews 10:23(NLT)

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.


1 Corinthians 1:9 (NLT)

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.

We all know God is faithful, our problem is waiting on his faithfulness.

Faithfulness

Faithfulness is part of God's nature, but we are the total opposite. What is natural for us is to be unfaithful. However, we all desire others to be faithful to us. Often we don't realize that the most faithful relationship we can have is a relationship with God. Throughout scriptures, we can read how God showed his faithfulness to His people. He made pacts with them to assure them that he would come through. Why did He have to make a pact with them? Men's sinful nature of unfaithfulness leads him to not believe.

Faithful means:

loyal, constant, staunch, steadfast, resolute mean firm in adherence to whatever one owes allegiance. faithful implies unswerving adherence to a person or thing or to the oath or promise by which a tie was contracted.

One of the reasons we find it so hard to be faithful is because we tend to get into agreements we know we can't fulfill. We do them because it is convenient at the time or because we want to please a specific person. That is how we fall into our own traps and we begin to think that we can be fully faithful to another person.

2 Timothy 2:11-13(NLT)

This is a trustworthy saying:

If we die with him,

we will also live with him.

If we endure hardship,

we will reign with him.

If we deny him,

he will deny us.

If we are unfaithful,

he remains faithful,

for he cannot deny who he is.

How can we be faithful?

It is through accepting God's perfect and loving faithfulness that we are able to appreciate its value.

Can we truly be faithful?

I believe that we can. The Bible says that we have been given the Holy Spirit, and one of the functions of the Holy Spirit is to guide us to the truth. Every person that allows the Holy Spirit to guide them will be able to be faithful, not only to God but also in their relationships. Having a loving relationship with God is key for how we relate to others. When we can genuinely love others we can be faithful to them.


1 John 4:20 (NLT)

If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?



How do you find strength to cope in hard times?

      God made us how we are. Both sinful, and beautiful. And he gave us a conscience to help us get it right.
