I Corinthians 1:9 ” God, Who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.”

God is faithful…keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations. (Deuteronomy 7:9)  He is trustworthy, just, and true, unlike anyone else on this planet. For others will betray you…even those professing their love for you.  But God will never go back on His Word.  He can be trusted…so in turn, we can believe in Him.  And in that confidence,  springs hope. (Hebrews 10:23)

I Timothy 4:1 “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.”

Whether you agree we’re in the end times or not, this verse points out the subtle and indirect way we can be lead astray.  We don’t have to rebel outright…turning our backs on the Gospel,  to be caught up in deception.  In fact, in casual listening, what we hear may not sound wrong at all.  For twisted and corrupted “religious beliefs” are all around us…with new and even more Holy Spirit grieving ones popping up everyday.  As a Believer, you need to carefully discern what you hear…does it line up with the Bible, not just a little, but totally?

Romans 10:4 ” Christ is the end of the Law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.”

Jesus Christ came to earth and died on the Cross to fulfill the demands of the Law.  He freed us from the impossible observances of those Laws…giving us instead His perfect Law that offers freedom from sin and guilt.  For anyone who puts their faith and trust in Jesus…the old Law-keeping vanishes, as the new covenant is activated in their heart.

Psalm 107:21 ” Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men.”

The Lord loves to bless you in small gestures that only you would recognize.  Little blessings are a way that God shows you just how special you are to Him, and that He too cares about ever aspect of your life.  These unexpected little blessings should come as no surprise though…for God’s kindness and mercy is unending towards you…His love for you is unmeasurable…His desire to give you good gifts is part of His being.

I Kings 8:23 ” O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like You in heaven above or on earth below – You Who keep Your covenant of love with Your servants who continue wholeheartedly in Your way.”

He’s a promise keeping God.  If He’s said it…He’ll do it.  He’s also a faithful and trustworthy God…He will never go back on His promises.  Have you trusted Him for something lately?  Not just saying it,  but really standing on His Word and believing?  That kind of faith building strengthens our walk and allows us to rely on Him more.  And as we come to rely on Him more, our love for Him grows, and so does our trust.

We’ve got to live: Faithfully in His Word

In James it says to not merely listen to the Word…but do It.   In order to put your trust in the Lord,  you must take what you hear and apply it to your life.  You need to take that head knowledge and internalize it into heart knowledge.  The Word of God is powerful and alive, but if it goes in one ear and out the other, it’s of no use to you.  For just hearing God’s voice will never cause change within… unless you do something with it.

Psalm 145: 13 “…the Lord is faithful to all His promises.”

There’s no one else we can trust…no one else that we can believe in .  For it says in Joshua 23:14, ” God is faithful, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commands.”   We then can stand firmly on that promise…for God keeps His word.
