Reflecting on God’s Faithfulness

 

READ | Lamentations 3:22-23

Our heavenly Father is always faithful to His promises. We can be certain of this because He made them based upon His unchanging character and His Son Jesus Christ.

Many times during the years, I have been the beneficiary of God’s faithfulness to His Word. For example, Romans 10:13 says, ‘Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ At age 12, I believed in Jesus as his Savior. Despite my lack of Bible knowledge, I recognized that I was a sinner. Once I trusted the Lord to forgive my sins, Jesus saved me, just as His Word said.

Around age 14, I began thinking about my future and wondering what direction it would take. On the basis of God’s promises, I believed He would speak to me and reveal His plans for my life. In time, God made it clear that He wanted me to become a preacher. So, I began putting money away for college. My source of income was a paper route, which meant my savings account grew by very small amounts. When I looked at its balance, I didn’t see how I could ever afford to enroll.

The Lord then brought Proverbs 3:5-6 to life for me. God orchestrated a series of events that led to my receiving a full scholarship. If I had depended on my own thinking, I might have given up on my dream of college. Because I trusted in God, He provided what I needed to fulfill His plan.

Think about how God has worked in your life. What testimony could you give of His faithfulness to you?
