God’s Faithfulness to You is Sure

I often see photos on Facebook that have quotes on them. A couple of weeks ago someone posted one that read,

“Show God your faith and He’ll show you His faithfulness.”

Did you know this is actually a false statement? God’s faithfulness is not dependent upon our faith. He is faithful no matter what; whether we “show” Him our faith or not. That’s what faithfulness is. It’s remaining true to His Word, and God is always, without fail, true to His Word.

Sometimes it’s more visible to us than others. Sometimes we’re not looking hard enough to see it.

When God says that He has accepted you, you can be sure He’s faithful to His word. (Romans 15:7)

You are accepted.

When God says you are wonderfully made, He meant it! (Psalm 139)

You are wonderfully made!

And moms, when you stumble, when you fail, He’s there to pick you up every single time. (Psalm 94:18; Isaiah 41:10)

I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10b

I don’t know about you, but for myself, I’ve noticed it’s easier to believe the bad stuff about myself. It’s easier to believe that I’m not good enough then it is to believe that Christ has completed me.

We need to change these mindsets! They are wrong and we are living as if they are truth. Whatever you meditate on, you become. If you meditate on the Word, it takes over.Holley Gerth - Book - God's Heart for You

 

You know, Holley Gerth has a neat little book out called “God’s Heart for You” and it is packed with God’s faithfulness. It’s the perfect compilation of truth about who God says you are. I encourage you to pick up a copy and replace those lies with His truth.

    This is so so SO encouraging Christin…thank you.
    It helps so much to recognize those whispers of untruth…as lies from the enemy.
    I love 2 Cor. 10:5–”taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”
    “Taking”– it’s an ongoing battle to cling to His faithfulness and His promises–to who He is and what He actually has done.

    Tuesday’s post for me was “Don’t Listen to Yourself; Preach to Yourself”
    (from a Martin Lloyd-Jones quote mushed with the study I’m working on in Ephsians :) ).
    I love MLJ’s reminder that our “self” is not always trustworthy, but God’s Word always is.

    This seems to be a recurring topic this week, at least in the posts I’ve read. I think it’s amazing how God puts in front of us exactly what we NEED to hear, even if we don’t like it.

    Thank you for the beautiful reminder!

    *hugs*
