God is Faithful

God is faithful.

In the book of 1 Samuel, Samuel sets up an Ebeneezer stone, a reminder stone meaning “Till now the Lord has helped us” (1 Samuel 7:12). I have my own Ebenezer stones, things that help me to remember that the Lord has been with me and he is faithful. I can look back on these situations and experiences and clearly see God’s faithfulness.

What about you? What are some of your Ebenezer stones?

We don’t always see God at work in something as it is happening. Instead we can look back to times that prove his promise that he will never leave us nor forsake us. He is eternally faithful.
One of my favorite verses comes from the book of Lamentations (3:22-23). This truth has been a comfort to me so many times when I’ve felt overwhelmed, confused, alone, hurt, full of sorrow, anxious, or angry.

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.

When the storms rage in our lives, he blankets us in peace. When we feel empty in our loneliness, he reminds us he is always with us. When we feel consumed by struggles and difficult situations, we don’t have to fear or worry because he is our refuge and strength. When the world feels bleak, the sun still rises every morning to remind us that he is always at work and he is faithful.

I encourage you to take it all to the Lord. Anything that is holding you hostage or making you feel defeated, you can lay it at his feet. He promises that “he will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart” (Psalm 91:4).

God is faithful.
