No one has ever trusted in the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ and been disappointed for doing so. And no one ever will.
I love thinking these words, saying them, writing them, and communicating them in whatever way our Lord grants as the vehicle for declaring His faithfulness. There is someone to trust in this life and forevermore, Someone who "cannot lie," and whose "faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds" (Titus 1:2; Psalm 36:5). God will be today who He was yesterday, and He will be tomorrow who He is today. Of no one else can this be said, and our Heavenly Father's trustworthiness is so vast that as long as He "abideth faithful," all others can forsake us without jeopardizing the peace of our hearts (II Timothy 2:13).
"At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me (II Timothy 4:16-17).
We must build this altar of God's perfect faithfulness in our hearts. That is, we must choose to believe, as enabled and confirmed by the Holy Spirit, that "as for God, His way is perfect" (II Samuel 22:31). We will not always live in the light of this sacred conviction, and we will often need to revisit the altar for remembrance of Divine faithfulness. However, the brilliant flame that burns in the candle of our spirits must illuminate our path as life winds its way through venues of blessing and difficulty. God has given the Lord Jesus Christ to super-abundantly meet our need in this moment, and forevermore (Philippians 4:19; Ephesians 3:20). We can trust Him without reserve no matter where the path may lead. Because no one has ever trusted in the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and been disappointed for doing so. And no one ever will.
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True."
