Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations…
From Genesis to Revelation, God’s faithfulness is recorded time and time again. From the moment He breathed life into man, to the redeeming blood of Jesus, through to His reign at the end of this age, God remains faithful through it all. From Adam, to Noah, to Abraham, to Jacob, to David, to the prophets, to the apostles, to His disciples and to us today – He has shown Himself personally faithful. It is not because we are special, mighty, rich, intelligent or beautiful. No, He is faithful because He simply IS. He cannot be unfaithful; it is completely contrary to his character. When He speaks, His words are impenetrable, immoveable, and eternal. While men lose their passion; forget their commitments until the motivation for affection fades past memory; our God never does!
So when God says, He’ll keep us – He will keep us always. When God says He loves us, He loves us eternally. When He says He will never leave us, He will NEVER forsake us – He never, EVER, will. When He promises to love and care for those who love him and keep his commandments, He means to never, EVER, remove His love, affection, and tender care. Even when we drift away with our adulterous eyes wandering here and there; His eyes remain steadfast upon us, waiting for us to turn his way again. When we do, we find His gaze already fixed upon us with eyes filled with love, not condemnation. We discover GREAT is God’s faithfulness; unchanging, merciful, and loving to the end.
Psalm 89:1–2 I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever; with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations. For I said, “Steadfast love will be built up forever; in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.”
