“God’s Perfect Faithfulness” By Zach Wood
” O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.” Isaiah 25:1
It’s always an inspiration to read Scriptures that specifically address God’s faithfulness. Who on earth could ever be perfect in faithfulness? There is no one who can promise us this and remain faithful to that promise. God’s faithfulness is never ending.
From the time you get up in the morning to the time you lay your head to rest, you can count on God’s faithfulness to lead you through the day. He is faithful. There is no doubt about it. While everyone else in the world fails us because they are imperfect, we have an awesome God to rely on that is always there and is always perfect in every way.
Isaiah sends this amazing prayer up to the heavens declaring the greatness of our faithful God. He has perfect faithfulness. We can rely on Him no matter what we experience. No matter how deep our pain may become, there is no greater source of faithfulness than God. He has done marvelous things, continues to do so even today and He will be that way forever. Isn’t that a great promise?
Maybe you just need the reminder today as so many around you have failed in their faithfulness. Maybe today you’re struggling and you just need little reminders that God is always there and watching over you.
Isaiah’s words here should echo into our lives each day as we seek to serve and praise our awesome Father. He is the only source of perfect faithfulness we have to rely on. There is none greater and none more powerful.
