"Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;” Deuteronomy 7:9
“The faithful God” is a wonderful description of who God is. Faithfulness is something we learn about God over a period of time. We may experience moments when God shows us His faithfulness, when we receive an answer to prayer or receive some provision. However to truly appreciate His faithfulness, we see His track record of repeated examples of His faithfulness. The sun rising everyday is an awesome demonstration of the very nature and character of God. He could “pull the plug” on the whole thing, but continually demonstrates His love and concern for us by allowing us to seek for Him. When we see natural disasters which cause such destruction, we must focus on God's faithfulness, in the fact He is faithful and helps us rise up and rebuild. Let us not focus on the moment to appreciate His faithfulness, but remember the many testimonies of what He has done and know that He will continue to show that He loves us.
I pray we focus on God faithfulness in our times of trouble.
