Faithful Even Still

You know what is amazing about God? He's faithful. He's always faithful. You see, He's not like us. He doesn't have ulterior motives. He's not selfish. He doesn't double-cross anyone. He is always good, always loving, and always faithful.


Even when I haven't felt God, I know that He was there because He says, "Never will I leave you. Never will I forsake you." Get it into your mind and into your heart that your mess doesn't scare Him. He is not going to leave you because you can't get it all together, or because you have made too many mistakes. Take Him at His Word; He's not leaving you. Take Him at His Word; He's faithful to you. Take Him at His Word; His mercies never end. Take Him at His Word; He's good. Take Him at His Word; He loves you. And His love is not like the world's love. It doesn't change based off of what you do or who you are, His love for you always endures.


He will not forsake you in the difficulties. What does the Psalmist say? "Even when I walk through the valley of the Shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me." When you are walking through the valley, He is with you.


I know it's hard when you're walking through something really difficult in life, and you just don't feel or see God. Trust me, I get it. But don't give up on Him. Don't give in to the fear. Don't give in to the lie of the enemy telling you that God's not there. God is still with you. He is not giving up on you. His faithfulness is not too good to be true. It's steadfast and full of love.


When you're dealing with doubt about God's faithfulness, remember Him. Remember the times He has come through in the past where you couldn't help but say, "Wow God." You're not always going to feel Him, and you're not always going to see Him, but you can remember Him. Remember His faithfulness and steadfast love for you, and let that be the truth you stand upon. Psalm 77 speaks to this well. The Psalmist writes:

7 “Will the Lord spurn forever,

and never again be favorable?

8 Has his steadfast love forever ceased?

Are his promises at an end for all time?

9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?

Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah

10 Then I said, “I will appeal to this,

to the years of the right hand of the Most High.”

11 I will remember the deeds of the LORD;

yes, I will remember your wonders of old.

12 I will ponder all your work,

and meditate on your mighty deeds.

13 Your way, O God, is holy.

What god is great like our God?

14 You are the God who works wonders;

you have made known your might among the peoples.

15 You with your arm redeemed your people,

the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

Sometimes you feel like the Psalmist did in verse 7. And that's understandable. But you can't stay there. You can't settle in the remains of doubt. We need to get into the habit of remembering God's faithfulness. Our feelings and understandings change, but He does not, and so sometimes we just need to remind ourselves of Who He is. He is faithful. He is true. He is trustworthy. He is kind. He is loving. He is God.


His faithfulness makes me want to be faithful. His faithfulness makes me want to set aside my feelings and remain steadfast in all circumstances. Have I done that perfectly yet? No. But has He left me? No. So I will keep coming, I will keep trying to be faithful, I will keep laying my feelings aside and surrendering to trust, and I will keep loving my God. He is worthy of that.
