Lean On Me


"Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands" (Deut.7:9).

I wrote yesterday about the faithfulness of Jesus, so lets up the ante just a bit. Today's verse tells us about one more foundation of reliability that we can lean on...."He is the faithful God!" In my book that means that our God is completely reliable and completely trustworthy. When we accept Him into our lives, we have a bedrock of stability. Just how faithful is He? "No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out, so that you can stand up under it" (1 Cor.10:13). Our gracious God will provide a way out. Just how faithful is He? "But the Lord is faithful, and he will protect and strengthen you from the evil one" (2 Thess.3:3). Though Satan is on the prowl, we have this promise from God of a mantle of protection. Just how faithful is He? "May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it" (1 Thess.5:23-24). We have a God who is so faithful that he desires to keep on with his work right through our salvation. Isn't it great to have a God who is so faithful, reliable and trustworthy? A God that we can lean on....... I would probably take another Amen for that too....

Have a wonderful day....Go about doing good.... Love mark Phil.4:11
