You can say that God is faithful; you can even know that He is faithful—but are you postured in such a way that you experience it? Most of us have not experienced very much faithfulness in our lives, and this presents a problem. Suddenly, we are to trust that God—who we cannot see—is faithful to us?
People can let us down. Workplace leaders may not come through with promised advancements. Our emotions are fickle. Then, we come into a relationship with Jesus and are told that God is faithful. That He is trustworthy. That He is reliable. How do we step into a deep level of trust in the nature of God? Join me on this week’s podcast, Experiencing God’s Faithfulness.
Experiencing God’s Faithfulness
People can let us down. Whether it’s a mother, father, sister, brother, spouse, boyfriend, son or daughter—it hurts. Workplace leaders may not come through with promised advancements. I am not a pessimist. There are a lot of good, loyal people out there. People with whom you are safe and with whom you can confide. But we cannot look to people to understand true faithfulness. True faithfulness comes only from the One who is called Faithful and True!
I will tell you right now, I have been betrayed in the worst ways, God, Himself, brought me through it and placed me on higher ground. He increased revelation in me, gave me broader vision, and made me know all the more in my knower that I have HOPE and a FUTURE!!!
When we come into a relationship with Jesus, read that God is faithful. That means He is true to His word and His promises. It means He is trustworthy. That He is reliable. Most of us did not experience a healthy father relationship. I did not have a father figure. Mine died when I was only four. Some of you also had absent fathers for other reasons. Without having known a faithful father, how do we step into a deep level of trust in the faithfulness of God? What exactly does that mean?
