You are So Faithful Lord


Faithful

Bob Fitts

Like the sun that rises everyday,
You are so faithful. Lord, You are faithful.
Like the rain that You send,
And every breath that I breathe,
You are so faithful, Lord

Verse 2:
Like the rose that comes alive every spring,
You are so faithful. Lord, You are faithful.
Like the life that You give,
to every beat of my heart,
You are so faithful, Lord.

Pre Chorus:
I see the cross and the price You had to pay,
I see the blood that washed my sins away.

Chorus:
In the midst of the storm
through the wind and the waves,
You’ll still be faithful, You’ll still be faithful,
When the stars refuse to shine and time is no more,
You’ll still be faithful,
You’ll still be faithful, Lord.

A wonderful song by Bob Fitts. It has ministered to my heart today in a new way. Knowing that God is faithful and that He changes not, gives the Christian confidence that He will perform what He has promised. We rest in the Finished Work of our Great High Priest, the Lord Jesus Christ, and trust that He will see us through until we reach the Golden Side. He promised us eternal life and we stand upon His promises.

How wonderfully broad the faithfulness of God is, so that it reaches every human need. So often we associate God’s faithfulness with the supplying of our physical or financial requirements, and no more. But it is far more comprehensive than that. In a world of wickedness, it is His faithfulness that confirms us through the Word, and keeps us from evil. (2Thess. 3:3). In the moment of testing, He is faithful in not allowing us to be tempted above what we are able to bear, and in making a way of escape (1 Cor. 10:13). During a period of pride or disobedience, it is in faithfulness that He allows us to be afflicted (Psalm 119:75), that we might be drawn back to Himself. Though we were born in sin, and though we come short of the glory of God, He is merciful and faithful to make reconciliation as our High Priest (Hebrews 2:17). In the hour of broken fellowship, due to our having sinned against His righteousness, through our confession He is faithful and just to forgive us, and to cleanse us from all our unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

Numbers 23:19:   God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

God is always faithful.  God is not like men: whatever He says is, is.  Whatever He says He will do, He will do.  God absolutely makes good on everything that He has said.  That is what comes to mind when I think of the faithfulness of God- God’s faithfulness and His integrity to His Word.

Throughout history, God has given His Word to men, and they could believe it, or they could not believe it.  Belief or unbelief hasn’t changed that which was spoken.  “The scripture cannot be broken.”  It cannot be broken, or changed, or mutated, or scratched, or dented, or wrecked….or anything.  Simply, God’s Word abides, and men come and go.  If men believe God’s Word, they are blessed; and if not, they do not break the Word.

How comforting it is to know that Jesus Christ, the son of God, is returning for the Body of Christ.  How comforting it is to know that God is faithful to His Word and we will all be changed at the day.  How comforting it is to know that God will perform His good work in us until the day of Jesus Christ.  How comforting it is to know that God is faithful to forgive us our sin.  How comforting it is to know that God can make a way when there is no way.  How comforting it is to know that God is faithful.
