TRUE TO HIMSELF

I will sing of the mercies of the LORD forever: with my mouth will I make known Thy faithfulness to all generations.   Psalm 89:1

Faithfulness is that in God which guarantees that He will never be or act inconsistent with Himself.  You can put that down as an axiom.  It is good for you now and good for you when you’re dying.  It will be good to remember as you rise from the dead and good for all the cons and millenniums to come.  God will never cease to be what He is and who He is.  Every-thing God says or does must be in accord with His faithfulness.  He will always be true to Himself, to His works and to His creation. . . .
 Now that may sound a little dry, but if you get that inside of you and build on it, you’ll be glad you know it the next time you’re in a tough circumstance.  You can live on froth and bubbles and little wisps of badly understood theology---until the pressure is on.  And when the pressure is on, you’ll want to know what kind of God you’re serving.

 This is the kind of God you’re serving:  All that God says or does must accord with all of His attributes, including His attribute of faithfulness.  Every thought that God thinks, every word that God speaks, every act of God must accord with His faithfulness, wisdom, goodness, justice, holiness, love, truth and all His other attributes. 


The next time I’m in tough circumstances, Lord, we will trust Your faithfulness, for we know that’s the kind of God we serve!  Amen.
