Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall prevent it? Isaiah 43:13
Many Scripture prophecies, delivered long ago, are not yet fulfilled; but the fulfilling of some is an earnest that the rest will come to pass.
We can trust in God because we can trust in His character. Confidence in God, is to have trust in His Word and character. The Lord calls us foolish, when we rely on our own strength and wisdom, and cursed when we place our trust in other people.
Isaiah 46 is worth a read; through the prophet Isaiah the Lord rebukes those who trust in idols and challenges them to compare Him to another god. He says, who can tell the future like I can? And then tells of a man that He would use to deliver Israel from Babylonian captivity (Is. 46:11). This scripture was fulfilled in 538 B.C, by the Cyrus the king of Babylon who released the Jews to return to Jerusalem!
The bible tells other countless of stories about God’s faithfulness. And we can meet people from all walks of life and all parts of the world whom can tell us about the faithfulness of God in their lives as well. For instance: God told Adam and Eve, He would send one who bruise the heel of the serpent: God promised Abraham, he would give him a child and make a great nation of him: God told Moses, he would deliver Israel: God gave Joseph a dream that his brothers would somehow bow down to him. And guess what, God was faithful to His word! He saw Adam and Eve’s sin. He saw Abraham and Sarah’s impatience. He saw Moses hastiness. And he saw Joseph’s suffering throughout the process. God sees us too. God is and will continue to be faithful to us as well.
The word of God is true: what God has said is true, and we can trust in all that He does (Ps. 33:4). Faith doesn’t rely on feelings but relies on God’s unbreakable promises.
Lord God we acknowledge you, your greatness and sovereignty. You are the All knowing God. I pray today for revelations of your love, and purpose for each of our lives. May we learn to rest in you and in what you say! In Jesus name, Amen.
