Faithfulness and More ~ Lent 2015

God’s Faithfulness ~ Our Everlasting Hope!
LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You and praise Your name, for in perfect faithfulness
You have done wonderful things, things planned long ago. Isaiah 25:1 NIV

During this season of reflection and renewal, join me in exploring God’s Faithfulness. Do you find strength for every circumstance in God’s Faithfulness? God IS Faithful!  God’s Faithfulness is our everlasting Hope! ~ Donna Oswalt

Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.  Psalm 36:5 NLT

Faithfulness, defined in the dictionary, includes characteristics of showing constant loyalty, deserving trust, keeping promises. Words like fickle or false, dishonesty or disregard cannot share space with perseverance or reliability or truth. In reading Psalm 36, the examples of a faithful God stand in sharp contrast to the heart and mind of the unfaithful, the confused, the wicked. While the corrupted heart defines rebellion, hypocrisy, bullying and vulgarity, the faithfulness of God soars higher, reaches beyond, seeks deeper with unfailing love.

God’s characteristics of unfailing love, righteousness, and justice are the foundations of His faithfulness. This holy compassion, safe shelter, and abundant provision bring us peace and rest and fulfillment. God is the unlimited source of life, our unceasing satisfaction in living, and unfailing hope for eternal life. 

Yahweh, the One whose love desires me, whose grace completes me, whose abundance overwhelms me. Great is Your faithfulness, my source of all things needed. – dho


Focus Point: God’s characteristics of unfailing love, righteousness, and justice are the foundations of His faithfulness.
