A Sunday Message

Posted: March 21, 2010 at 7:20 pm

I just read my devotional email I get each day and for some reason, felt compelled to post it here for you all to read as well. I hope this is an encouraging message and if it was meant for even one person to read and feel inspired by, then it was worth posting. 🙂

March 20-21
The Trustworthy Character of God

2 Samuel 7:21-22

Whom do you trust? These days, it's not easy to find many people who are true to their word. At some point, we all learn the hard way that anyone other than almighty God can disappoint us. Let's look at the Lord's character to discover why He can be trusted.

First, He is the one true God. Back in Old Testament times, it was common for people to actually carve and worship a false god. Today, it is more typical to idolize something unseen, such as wealth, power, fame, or relationships. These can consume our passion, money, and time—and in the end leave us fruitless and empty. Jehovah, on the other hand, is alive and real, ready to be intimately involved in our lives.

Second, God is truth, and He is always faithful (John 14:6; 1 Cor. 10:13). Unlike sinful man, the Lord is trustworthy—and everything that He says will happen comes to pass. Our sovereign God has all power and is in control of every situation.

Third, Christ loves us unconditionally. How can we ever doubt His love when He willingly gave His life in our place? And His love is based not on our behavior or status, but rather on His character alone.

Fourth, the heavenly Father is unchanging. All of the above are timeless attributes that will forever be true.

God can be trusted. So don't give Him just the easy concerns; rely upon your Creator for everything. He desires a personal relationship with His beloved and is able to guide each believer through life victoriously. In a changing, suspicious world, you have a Friend who is 100 percent reliable.
