The scripture is replete with many instances of God’s faithfulness. The story of the children of Israel being delivered from Pharaoh is an act of God’s faithfulness. His promise to Abraham, and its fulfilment is also an act of his faithfulness. It is no doubt that God is indeed faithful.
The Lord whom we serve has in many ways demonstrated his faithfulness to us such that if we decide to take an inventory of his faithfulness, we’ll be unable to name all. The fact that you’re alive today is a proof of his faithfulness. The fact that he promised you and then fulfilled his promise shows to you that he is faithful.
Shouldn’t we therefore appreciate him for his faithfulness? Shouldn’t we look to him, and say, “You are faithful, God?”. When we think of God’s goodness and mercy towards us, we cannot but say he is faithful. The Psalmist testified to God’s faithfulness in this verse below,
“Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them , they are more than can be numbered.” (Psalm 40:5).
Thinking about God’s faithfulness, he couldn’t even recall all, and so he had to summarise saying, many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done [ meaning, You’re just so faithful, and many things You’ve done to show You’re indeed faithful. Your faithful works are just so many], and thy thoughts which are to us-ward [ even your many thoughts toward us is a proof of your faithfulness].
Then he says, they cannot be reckoned in order unto thee [meaning, they are so many that I can’t count them in order of their occurrences]: If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered[ and even if I try to declare all, they are just too many, and it will be impossible for me to do that]. Glory to God.
Dear believer, just as the Psalmist has said, our God is indeed faithful. His works and thoughts towards are a proof of his faithfulness, and if we were to count them in order, we won’t be able to do that. The least we can do therefore is to just let him know we are ever grateful for his faithfulness towards us. God is faithful.
Thought for the day: The works and thoughts of the Lord towards us are a proof of his faithfulness. God is indeed faithful.
