“If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.” - 2 Timothy 2:13
I just want to give you a simple reminder this week: God is faithful.
You may be troubled by the thought that your mistakes may have cost you the call of God upon your life. And while our disobedience toward God can certainly slow His work in our lives, our disobedience does not mean God’s inactivity.
Even when you are stubborn, He is faithful. Even when you are fearful, He is faithful. Even when you are not keeping up with all of the things that you know you should be doing, He is faithful. God’s grace supplements our disobedience.
Should we abuse that grace? By no means!
This just means that when you think you’ve gone too far, when you think you’ve messed everything up, He remains faithful. No matter how far you’ve gone or how long it took you to get that far, a single moment of repentance can bring you all the way to righteousness.
Look to the future, and be empowered by God’s grace, which is brought about by His faithful nature. Be encouraged today!
You’ve not been counted out. You’ve not been overlooked. God still wants to use your life.
He is merciful – not because we deserve it, but because He is faithful, and He cannot deny Who He is.
