2 Timothy 2:13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.
Life… it’s totally unpredictable. Sure, we all have plans for our future and have set goals for ourselves that we strive to achieve during our lifetime. Some of them come to fruition, while others are left unfulfilled. Life is beautiful but at times messy. It’s seemingly peaceful whilst still teeming with chaos. It’s joyful yet at times filled with indescribable sorrow. Life and the situations that we face within it influence us in one way or another, whether we like it or not.
But here’s a simple truth… our lives won’t always reflect shiny rainbows, sweet gumdrops, and glitter doused unicorns. Death, loss, grief, unemployment, loneliness, sickness, disappointment… Why is it that during the seasons of good fortune that our faith seems so much easier to pronounce? The procurement and profession of our faith when things are going the way we want them to occurs almost effortlessly, but when life takes those unexpected turns, why does it suddenly become harder for us to stand on the same platform that we so easily stood on before?
During those trying times when our faith seems to dim and hope begins to waver, it’s important to remember that God’s faithfulness to US does NOT. It never has and it never will. God remains faithful to us despite what we might be facing or enduring. He promised He would NEVER leave us or forsake us. He promised us that we could trust Him. He promised to supply our every need and that He would make all things work for our good. God loves us despite our mistakes and mishaps. He loves us despite our shortcomings and failures.
We have the ability to be content in every situation, in every season, and in every circumstance in our life. (Philippians 4:11-13) We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Things might seem dark, difficult, and maybe even hopeless right now, but cleave to your faith my friends. God will answer. He will provide. He will make a way. He is faithful! Never give up on God, because He never gives up on you.
