In this season of Ready to Worship, we are examining the “God is” statements of the Bible. These statements remind us of the nature of God and provide us with numerous reasons why He is worthy of our worship. In this podcast, we want to examine that God is faithful.
To the saints at Corinth, Paul wrote, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Cor. 10:13). As you know, the Corinthians were not known for their faithfulness. They forsook God many times and in a multitude of ways. However, the God that they served was faithful. He could be counted on. He would not suffer them to be tempted above that they were able. The temptations that came their way would be common to man. He would allow no superhuman or irresistible temptation to come against them. He would always provide a way of escape. Of course, the same promise holds true for us today.
One of my favorite passages on the faithfulness of God is found in Paul’s second letter to Timothy. We read, “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself” (2 Tim. 2:13). Our unbelief or unfaithfulness does not change God’s nature. Though we may waver, He never will. In the book of Hebrews, we read, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)” (Heb. 10:23).
Though we may leave Him, He will never leave us. In the book of Hebrews, we read, “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” (Heb. 13:5). Though we may be slack with our promises, He is not slack with His. Peter wrote, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3:9).
I believe that you will agree that a God who is faithful is worthy of our worship. As we get ready to worship this week, let’s remember the faithfulness of God.
