I will sing of the Lord’s unfailing love forever! Young and old will hear of your faithfulness. Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens. Psalms 89:1-2 NLT
One of the most intimate parts of our relationship involves the growth of your trust in My faithfulness. I keep all of My promises. I am not like you in that I change often, rather I am steadfast in all that I do. So why is it hard for you to place your continued trust in Me?
Disappointment creates a fog that keeps you from seeing how I am leading. You were hoping for a different outcome for the thing that was so important to you, but the end result has left you aimless about My leading. You feel as though I am distant, unconcerned, too busy, or that I just don’t care enough. You have convinced yourself that you are not worthy of My intervening.
You are my child! I will never fail you. My faithfulness toward you means that I always keep My promises. As sure as spring time and harvest, summer and winter, I will be present in the seasons of your life. As a small child jumps by faith into his father’s arms, you can also learn that I am trusted to catch you. To know Me as faithful is to learn that I am always trustworthy.
My word can be trusted. My Son was asked “if it is truly you, command me to walk on water?” He told Peter to come and he walked on water with my Son. Peter’s walk was totally dependent on his faith in the command to “come.” Trust my voice as I invite you to walk with me. Even if you start to sink, I will lift you up for I am faithful. Don’t let fear of making a mistake control you. Let the body of My Son, help you know how My Spirit is leading.
The bond of trust strengthens as you recount My faithfulness in your life. The singing and remembering helps you to focus on My involvement in your life. Others find My path trustworthy as you engage them in the retelling of My involvement in your story. King David sums up My faithfulness to his life as he wrote, “I have been young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or His children begging for bread.”
Trust Me when I say that I am faithful.
Whispers from your Father, God
