Unfailing Faithfulness ~ 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

I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great assembly. Psalm 40:10

The Bible tells the stories of many people who stand in the center of adversity but remain obedient to a faithful God. Very visible people, like Abraham, Esther, and Daniel, those in high positions like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, Joseph, and Nehemiah, the Disciples of Jesus, Paul and countless first century Christians endure ridicule and persecution for choosing to live in obedience to God. In placing their present and future lives in the hands of the constant, unchanging, unfailing love of God, their testimonies reveal God’s faithfulness to those who honor Him.

Today, Christians face difficulties, endure circumstances, and suffer injustices that test our faithful obedience to God. Seasons of distress and discomfort bind us to pain and grief. Whispers from the world evoke discouragement and create doubt. Trusting God within the events that stressful, daily living brings challenges every heart’s obedience. Then and now, God goes before us and provides everything we need. God’s eternal faithfulness must be the promise we claim. 

El Shaddai, All-Sufficient One – find me on my knees, find me in my struggles. You see all my needs, see all my enemies. Let me hear only Your whispers ~ fill me, encourage me, rescue me. Great is Your faithfulness in every moment, now and always.   – dho

Focus Point: Then and now, God goes before us and provides everything we need.
