God is faithful. He is not like men. He always keeps his word. The goal for us it to know His Word so we are aware of His promises because He won’t break them. What good is it to believe that God is faithful if we don’t truly know what that means? There are the obvious facts about God that we tend to remember but His promises cover quite a span of truths. He made the promise to save the world and Jesus came to fulfill that promise. From that amazing promise comes an array of subcategories that fall under the umbrella of salvation. Salvation is not for later. It is for now. If you believe that Jesus is your Savior, you are living in salvation today. The question is, do you know what salvation entails? Do you know what promises are attached to salvation today? If you do what it takes to learn more about salvation, you will learn more about the promises that the Lord won’t break. He is faithful and He abides by His Word. He is so faithful that He actually is The Word. Today I want to remind you that God is faithful and true. He never breaks His promises. He embodies His truths but being His Word and He won’t let His Word come back to Him empty when we use it.
A promise is a sort of agreement between different parties. On one side there is the one who makes the promise and on the other side the people who will benefit from that promise or who will be impacted by that promise. When God makes a promise, He is on one side but He comes to our side as well. He comes to our side to help us and assist us in our quest for believing His promises. When we trust His promises and use His Word, we can see incredible things happen because He said that His Word would not come back to Him empty. When you use God’s Word and you confess it, you are on God’s side. You stand with Him on the promise. You will receive the benefit of the promise after reviving it by confessing it. Let me explain this further.
Let’s take one of God’s promises. For instance, God said He would never leave us nor forsake us. He made that promise and whoever believes in it will be the recipient of that promise. Now when a believer trusts the promise and confesses it, God stands with the believer because the believer is using the Word of God and God and His Word are One. When you remind the Lord of what He said in His Word, you are on God’s side. You absorb His Word and you make it yours. You identify with that truth and by confessing it, you are sending it back to God and He must honor His Word. His Word won’t go back to Him empty. It will be fulfilled and He is faithful so He will do what He promised He would. God is faithful so use His Word and see how He brings it to pass. Rely on His faithfulness. He can’t deny Himself!
