Psalm 89:1, “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.”
This is a very well-known verse of the Bible. The portion of the verse I want to focus on is two words—Thy faithfulness. To be faithful is to be, “Loyal, constant, and steadfast.” God is faithful. Let us examine the faithfulness of God based on the definition.
God is loyal. To be loyal is to, “giving or showing firm and constant support.” God is not AGAINST you; God is FOR you. God does not do anything to hurt us. He may allow hard times to come into our lives to increase our faith and make us stronger, but God is not our to get us. He will correct us when we are out of line, but His goal is not to make us miserable. He is loyal.
God is constant. To be constant is to, “remain the same over a period of time.” I am so glad that we have a God that never changes. In a world where change (often bad change) is all around us, we can rest assured in the fact that our God never changes. Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
God is steadfast. To be steadfast is to be, “resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering.” We never have to wonder if God will be there for us. God is always there when we need Him. Hebrews 13:5 states, “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
As we can clearly see, God is faithful. He was faithful to those in the Bible, He is faithful to us today, and He will be faithful to those coming after us. If you have benefited from the faithfulness of God (which we all have), do not be afraid to share it with others. As the psalmist wrote, “With my mouth will I make known Thy faithfulness to all generations.”
