I will not take my love from him, nor will I ever betray my faithfulness. Psalm 89:33, NIV
Some people become famous, or infamous, for stunning acts of betrayal. Think of Brutus, who betrayed Julius Caesar; Benedict Arnold, who betrayed the American Revolutionaries; Joseph’s brothers, who betrayed him; and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus.
The word betray means “to violate a trust and to willfully expose a friend to the enemy.” Betrayal is an act of treason, and it’s among the most difficult injustices to handle. Millions of people today are wounded by a sense of being betrayed by a husband, wife, parent, or loved one.
Jesus predicted that the Last Days would be full of people who “will betray one another, and will hate one another” (Matthew 24:10).
But God will never betray His faithfulness to you. The twentieth-century evangelist, Wilbur J. Chapman, wrote a hymn that said: “Jesus! What a friend for sinners! Jesus! Lover of my soul; / Friends may fail me, foes assail me; He, my Savior, makes me whole.”
Jesus promised to be with us to the end of the age, and He will never let you down. Even when you feel overwhelmed, remember—you’re actually undergirded. He is faithful!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving, He is with me to the end. Wilbur J. Chapman
