(1 Corinthians 10:13) “And God is faithful…”

There are not many words that are more comforting than these – God is faithful.  These three simple little words have the power to calm your heart, dispel your sorrows, bring peace to your troubled conscience and wipe away all worries.  Why?  Because your God never breaks a promise, He never goes back on His word.  It is in His word that He tells you that He will never leave you or forsake you (Joshua 1:9), that He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13), that He works out all things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28), that He is love (1 John 4:16), that He sent His only Son to die for you (John 3:16) and that in His heaven He has prepared a room for every one of His believers (John 14:2).

The list of wonderful promises your God has made for you goes on and on.  But the reason that God’s promises provide comfort in any and every situation is because Jesus was faithful to His heavenly Father’s promises.  Jesus – the Son of God – fulfilled all the promises that were written about Him so that during your hard times you could take comfort in knowing that your God is faithful!  He kept His promise of dying on the cross for you and so He will keep the rest of His promises too!  Your God is faithful!  He keeps His promises and never goes back on His Word.  You can put your trust in Him at all times, whether good or bad, because He is faithful.

Trusting in my faithful God, just like you,
