Yahweh's Constancy - 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

For Yahweh is good, His faithful love is everlasting, His constancy from age to age. Psalm 100:4-5 The Jerusalem Bible

This familiar Psalm proclaims thanksgiving to a Sovereign God whose goodness not only creates each person but provides and protects like a good shepherd. Praises and songs of gladness give honor to God. Faithful love never ends. Such goodness embodies both loyalty and truth. The attributes of God noted in Psalm 100 remain true today, just as His unchanging character is constant from age to age.

The LORD, Yahweh in Hebrew, is the one True God. This alone would be reason to worship Him; yet, God’s steadfast, enduring love embraces mercy and offers grace. While we struggle with uncertainty and constant change, comfort seems far away. The Apologetics Study Bible suggests the phrase “make a joyful noise” or “shout” is a war cry, using the same Hebrew verb that describes the shouting of the Israelites when they captured Jericho. The commentary says “this psalm takes the worshiper into the realm of spiritual warfare.” Our greatest peace comes from the Source of Perfect Goodness. For Yahweh is good! 

LORD, I believe You are the One True God, Creator and Redeemer of souls. This dark world calls to me, tries to entice me away from You, but Your goodness floods my soul. Great is Your faithfulness in every spiritual battle, every moment of doubt. I come into Your presence with thanksgiving. – dho

Focus Point: His unchanging character is constant from age to age.
