GOD IS FAITHFUL
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful… (1 Corinthians 10:13)
The word faithful means reliable, dependable, and trustworthy. The Bible does not use that word lightly. God is faithful and it therefore means the God you serve is reliable, dependable, and trustworthy. You may say, "Does He not see what I am going through?" He sees and is working on it. You can trust in Him. He is trustworthy
In Hebrews 10:23, Paul said, "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;" The God who promised you is faithful. Hold fast to the promise. Hold fast to your faith.
In John 11, Lazarus died. Mary and Martha sent for Jesus, Lazarus’ friend. Jesus arrived but then Lazarus was already rotting in the grave. In verse 40, Jesus said in other words, "Did I not tell you that if only you believe, you will see the glory of God?"
Jesus must have told them many things before. Jesus must have spent time to teach them the Bible but when their brother died, they thought Jesus was an unfaithful friend.
Jesus is saying today if only you believe, if you do not let problems, sickness, etc. cloud your mind, you will see the glory of God. You will see it in your marriage, family, business, job, education, etc. Mary and Martha saw the glory of God.
You are better than Lazarus. Lazarus was physically dead. You are still alive.
If Jesus had plans for a dead man, what about a living man? If Jesus was interested in a man who was already dead, if you have a problem, He is interested in you. If you are going through tribulations, He is interested in you. Faithful is He that promised. He will bring it to pass.
The God I serve is a faithful God. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Faithful is He that promised. If He said it, I believe it and it shall come to pass, in the name of Jesus.
