uplifting thoughts and inspiration on faith

God is Trustworthy

Isaiah 40:8
Before we can talk about how trustworthy God is we must first believe without a shadow of doubt that GOD IS and then meditate on WHO GOD IS.

Hebrews 11:6   But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

In the 36th book of Job Elihu Proclaims God’s Goodness.  He says:

Job 36:4-5   For truly my words are not false; ONE WHO IS perfect in knowledge is with you. Behold, God is mighty, but despises no one; He is mighty in strength of understanding.

Job 36:26   God is Great! Beyond our understanding.

We serve a great and mighty God.  Frankly speaking, who would want to serve a puny God?   An average God?   A kinda strong God?   If God is not the creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient,  omnipresent, righteous, sovereign, supreme ruler, then why bother?

The human condition is not a walk in the park.   Life can be hard, unfair, and downright unbearable at times.   Why add the burden of jumping through a bunch of religious hoops in the name of some pitiful little God who might not even exist?

If you believe in God then believe in a
GREAT BIG MIGHTY GOD.

Human beings are finite creatures.   We are born, we live a while, and we die.   We are limited in so many ways and we have a tendency to put God into the same cramped box we live in.   This is a huge mistake.

Isaiah 55:8   “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.

King Solomon was the wisest and wealthiest man who ever lived.  He was the son of King David, the beloved of God.  David is credited with writing many of the Psalms and Solomon is credited with writing Proverbs. From heavenly father to earthly father to son the admonition to fear the Lord has been passed down to us:

Psalm 111:10   The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.

Proverbs 1:7   The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 9:10   The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

The type of fear these scriptures speak of is not an anxious, cowering fear of an angry God just waiting to smite someone. This kind of fear means reverent awe.   Take time to meditate on God.   Consider WHO HE IS.   Humbled in God’s presence we get just a glimpse of His power and majesty.   Any more would kill us.   Like Elihu said, “GOD IS GREAT! Beyond our understanding!”

When God called Moses to go and free the Israelite children even Moses wondered how he was going to explain a God who appears in a burning bush that is not consumed.

Exodus 3:13-15   Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?”

And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’

God didn’t say “I am this God or that God,” He said, “I AM WHO I AM.”   God is not subject to past, present, or future tenses.  He just is.   He is God.

Revelation 1:8   “I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “WHO IS and WHO WAS and WHO IS TO COME, the Almighty.”

The words we use to describe God are less adjectives and more simply just WHO HE IS.   Being trustworthy is not something God does, it’s something GOD IS.

God is Supremely Trustworthy


Trustworthy:
 deserving of trust or confidence;  dependable;  reliable

Deuteronomy 32:4   He is the Rock, His work is perfect, for all His ways are law and justice.   A God of faithfulness without breach or deviation, just and right is He.

1 Kings 8:56   Blessed be the Lord, Who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. Not one word has failed of all His good promise which He promised through Moses His servant.

Psalm 9:10   And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

2 Samuel 7:28   Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.

Psalm 9:10   And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;  For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

Psalm 28:7    The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

Psalm 62:8   Trust in Him at all times, you people;  Pour out your heart before Him;  God is a refuge for us.

Psalm 111:7   The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.

Psalm 118:8   It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man.

Daniel 6:23   The king was overjoyed and gave orders to lift Daniel out of the den.  And when Daniel was lifted from the den, no wound was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.

God is Supremely Faithful

Faithful: strict or thorough in performance; true to one’s word, promises, or vows; steady in allegiance or affection; loyal; constant; reliable, trusted, or believed

Deuteronomy 32:4   He is the Rock, His work is perfect, for all His ways are law and justice.   A God of  faithfulness without breach or deviation, just and right is He.

Psalm 36:5   Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, extend to the skies, and Your faithfulness to the clouds.

Psalm 89:1-2   I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.   For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens.”

Psalm 92:15   [They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises;  He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

Isaiah 40:8   The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.

Lamentations 3:22-23   Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
