“There is none like God, O Jeshurun,
who rides through the heavens to your help,
through the skies in his majesty.
The eternal God is your dwelling place,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.”
Today I simply want to focus on faithfulness. The steady, constant faithfulness of my God. The God of perfect love. The God of all comfort and hope. The God who is the sovereign ruler of the universe, who keeps the planets in orbit and puts breath in my lungs. The God who sees me. The God who understands my heart, every fear and hope and motivation, everything that troubles me and all the reasons why—even when I am at a loss to explain. The God who knows exactly what I need to hear to quiet my heart and rest in Him.
My God has written my days, and He gives strength for each one. He rides through the heavens to the help of His people, pouring out perfectly apportioned grace for every need.
He is faithful. He is good. He is strong and mighty. Every purpose, every plan of His heart, will be fulfilled exactly as He wills. We may not understand why He chooses certain paths for us, filled with difficulty and struggle, but we can be assured that His faithfulness never wavers and His love never fails. Every decision is made with wisdom and understanding, and all that we face is for our good and for His glory. It is all making us like Christ. It is bringing us nearer to our God, the great and all-surpassing treasure.
“Through [our Lord Jesus Christ] we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:2-5)
Whatever valleys we walk through, as we see the faithfulness of our God in each step—strengthening us, sustaining us, assuring us of His truth, and revealing to us new depths of His glory—He is intent to produce hope in us. Hope firmly grounded in the God who will never fail.
