God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. —1 Corinthians 1:9
Are we going to trust God? Are we going to commit our entire future to Him? What more assurance do we need than the character of God Himself? It is God’s own eternal Person and His faithful character that tell us our salvation is secured through the blood of Jesus Christ, our Savior. It is because God is who He is that we can trust Him and be assured that His covenant will never change.
How rewarding it is to be able to make a proclamation like this! Our forgiveness, our hope for salvation, our confidence in the life to come rest upon God’s unchanging love and faithfulness…. Because holiness is God’s being, He cannot lie. Because He is God, He cannot violate the holy nature of His being. God does not will to lie. He does not will to cheat. He does not will to deceive. He does not will to be false to His own dear people.
Or to put it positively, in the very perfection of His character, God wills to be true to His children. Because He is perfect and because He is holy, His believing children are safe. Confidently knowing that the Lord God omnipotent reigns, and knowing that He is able to do all that He wills to do, I have no more doubts. I am safely held in the arms of the all-powerful God.
Thank You, Father, that You are faithful to Your promises. I’ll trust you and have no doubts today. Amen.
