THERE ARE TWO THINGS I KNOW as sure as I know the sun will rise; God is good and He is faithful. Are you in a difficult season? Do you feel so depressed that you can’t look up? Maybe you’re in a time of rejoicing? Everything is coming up roses? Has there been a sudden calamity? Or maybe you haven’t heard that still, small voice for months on a certain subject? Listen friend, your circumstances do not change who God is, nor do your feelings have anything to do with the matter. His character remains constant. He is good and He is faithful.
I remember a day when I thought nothing in my life would ever change, I felt stuck and entirely discouraged. I have fallen into depression from time to time and dealt with a panic disorder most of my adult life. I’ve experience loss and I have felt lost and forgotten. I have been abandoned, rejected, defeated and betrayed. Life is a series of mountains and valleys and I have had to change my mind and my thoughts, sometimes a hundred times a day. Yet, God does not change. He remains good and He remains faithful.
It is the steadfast character and nature of God that we can rely on Him, regardless of how we feel or what we are experiencing. He cannot lie, neither does He believe the lie. He cannot be coerced nor manipulated. God is good and He is faithful. But your trust is in Him, not what you want Him to do. Trust Him to act only in accordance with His character and know that the outcome will be for your good. “”The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is he.” Deuteronomy 32:4 ESV #runyourrace
