Friday, November 10 – Joshua 21:45
Not one of the good promises which the Lord had made to the house of Israel failed; everything came to pass.
One of the most valuable attributes we find in people is trustworthiness. Whether we are looking for a friend or an employee, we want to find someone who will do what they say. We want someone we can depend on. When that trait is missing, it seems like all other promising traits fall flat because there is no foundation of trust.
We have many questions for God as we walk with Him, but He has proven time and again that He is trustworthy. God keeps His promises, and He is faithful even when we are not. He has a proven track record in Scripture and many testimonies since of His dependability. Yet, we still struggle to depend on Him. We forget about the blessings and promises that come as we lean on God when we are focused on the pleasures and quick fixes of today. Colossians 3:2-4 says, “Set your minds on the things that are above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.” We have so much hope because we have a God who is trustworthy and still at work every day! May God’s faithfulness motivate us to see past today to the life He has called us to live, trusting He will be with us and bless us as we seek Him.
- How does God’s trustworthy character influence the way you follow Him?
- What makes it difficult to trust God even though He has kept His promises in the past?
- Pray and ask God to grow your trust in Him and remind you of the promises He has kept.
