TOPIC: HAVE FAITH IN GOD’S FAITHFULNESS
TEXT: 1 Thessalonians 5:24 “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it….”
Do you feel like God is leading you to do a certain thing or move in a certain direction and you’re feeling anxious because you’ve got lots of unanswered questions? Then read this: ‘By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going’ (Heb. 11:8). That’s what you must do too! Not only will you not have answers to all your questions, sometimes you won’t be able to explain what you’re doing to the people you love either. God’s Word says, ‘He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it’. So you can say, ‘I don’t know all the details or how this is going to work out, but I know God has promised to be faithful and that’s all I need’. In other words, your faith is in the faithfulness of God. It doesn’t get any better than that!
‘Blessed be the LORD, who has given rest to His people … according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised’ (1 Kings 8:56). Even if you stumble on the road to success, the Bible says, ‘If we are faithless, He remains faithful’ (2 Tim. 2:13). Will Satan attack you? Yes. ‘But the Lord is faithful, who will establish … and guard you from the evil one’ (2 Thess. 3:3). Knowing that, your attitude should be to ‘hold fast the confession of [your] hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful’ Today have faith in God’s faithfulness.
