The Lord is a faithful God:

• “Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands” (Deuteronomy 7:9).

• “He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does not wrong, upright and just is he” (Deuteronomy 32:4).

• “For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does” (Psalm 33:4).

• “But you, O LORD, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness” (Psalm 86:15).

• “For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever” (Psalm 117:2).

• “If we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself” (2 Timothy 2:13).

Definition of God’s Faithfulness: God will always do what He has PROMISED TO DO.

God is faithful to His promises:

• “Not one of all the LORD’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled” (Joshua 21:45).

• “Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses” (1 Kings 8:56).

• “The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made” (Psalm 145:13).

• “For not matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God” (2 Corinthians 1:20).

• “Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ for the faith of God’s elect and the knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness—a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time” (Titus 1:1-2).

Questions about God’s Faithfulness:

• “Why does God sometimes delay the fulfillment of His promises?” Answer: His delays are not His denials. Example: Christ’s return (Hebrews 10:37; 2 Peter 3:8-9).

• “Why does God sometimes seem to change a promise?” Answer: Changing a promise is not breaking a promise. Often, God changed a temporal promise into a spiritual promise. Often God permits His children to suffer the lack of temporal blessings in order that they might possess spiritual blessings. Example: Paul (Philippians 4:10-13, 19).

We live in a world of broken promises:

• Marriage vows are broken.

• Politicians break their promises.

The Big Idea: People will let you down, but GOD NEVER WILL.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:23).

“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand” (John 10:28).

“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:13).

“He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful” (1 Corinthians 1:8-9).

3. When you are TEMPTED to sin, remember God’s faithfulness.

“But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one” (2 Thessalonians 3:3).

“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).

4. When you have made a MESS of your life, remember God’s faithfulness.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

5. When you feel UNEQUAL to your tasks, remembers God’s faithfulness.

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).

The word of God is full of inspiring assurances of how God will provide for his followers. God is fully aware of our needs and the Bible tells us of how God wants us to come to him with every need and care and worry that we may have. We often turn to God for our physical needs but many (this writer included) fall short in asking God and seeking his provision for our spiritual and emotional needs. We must remember that when our focus is on God, and when our worldview about God shows that we believe that he is interested and cares about every area of our life; then we are starting to be in the place that God desires for us. That place will be where we talk constantly to God and listen for him to speak to us. There are many, many verses that speak about God’s provision for us. Here is a sampling, just 21 Bible verses about God’s provision for you to read and meditate on.

Luke 12:24 “Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!”

1 John 3:22 and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.

Final Thoughts 

One of the main impressions that I thought on while writing this article is the picture and feeling that I get as God being our true Heavenly Father. The words of Scripture paint this beautiful picture of God loving us so much that he will provide for us in all areas of life. God will take care of you just like he takes care of the lilies of the field. God is the best Father ever and He knows what our needs are and what our wants are. Sometimes, we get these two mixed up but we truly can trust God. Maybe you came to this article because you are in a bad stage of life where you just don’t know where to turn. Maybe you are in over your head financially or emotionally or spiritually. Maybe you feel that you are in it all alone. I hope that reading through some of these Scripture passages encourages you that God knows what is going on in your life and He will provide for you. We don’t always know how that will happen and there are situations that seem hopeless but the Lord God is a big God and He is still in the business of making beautiful things out of our messes. My prayer for you today is that you pray and talk to God about whatever you are going through. He loves His children and He has made promises that He will always be with us regardless of what we are going through.
