Reflection:

When plans are frustrated or life just seems to fall apart in some way, people often wonder, Has God deserted me?

Why hasn't He answered my prayers?

 

The Bible offers encouragement for such times by assuring us of the Father's faithfulness:

"Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;"

(Deuteronomy 7:9 /KJV).

Five attributes of God make this possible.

First, He is omniscient, which means He knows everything, including our every need, thought, frailty, desire, and life situation in the past, present, and future.

Next, the Lord is omnipotent, or all-powerful, so nothing is too hard for Him (Jer. 32:17).

Then, He is omnipresent--since He exists everywhere at once, He is never beyond reach.

In addition, our heavenly Father cannot lie.

Everything that He says is true and reliable.

And lastly, God is unchanging.

Our circumstances and the world around us may seem to be in a constant state of flux, and the Lord may even modify the way He chooses to interact with mankind in different generations.

But His character is always the same.

So when Scripture tells us that God is faithful, we can rest confidently upon that promise.

Circumstances can be painful.

But even when situations seem overwhelming, believers can trust that our sovereign Lord knows all, is in control, and lovingly works everything for His children's good.

We can rest confidently knowing that the unchanging God of all creation is taking care of us.

Prayer: 

Lord, You are Omnipresent, Omniscience, and Omnipotent God. You know everything, and everything is in You hands. You're a faithful and loving God who loves me and cares for me. Thank You for molding me by allowing me to experience trials and difficulties in life so that l will learn to trust You. Thank You for Your wonderful grace. I pray to You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

"I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;... Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:... God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord."

1 Corinthians 1:4-9 (KJV)
