Resting in the Faithfulness of God - I Corinthians 1

When plans are frustrated or life just seems to fall apart in some way, people often wonder, Has God deserted me? Why hasn't He answered my prayers? The Bible offers encouragement for such times by assuring us of the Father's faithfulness: "Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments" (Deuteronomy 7:9).

Five attributes of God make this possible. First, He is omniscient, which means He knows everything, including our every need, thought, frailty, desire, and life situation in the past, present, and future. Next, the Lord is omnipotent, or all-powerful, so nothing is too hard for Him (Jeremiah 32:17). Then, He is omnipresent - since He exists everywhere at once, He is never beyond reach.

In addition, our heavenly Father cannot lie. Everything that He says is true and reliable. And lastly, God is unchanging. Our circumstances and the world around us may seem to be in a constant state of flux, and the Lord may even modify the way He chooses to interact with mankind in different generations. But His character is always the same. So when Scripture tells us that God is faithful, we can rest confidently upon that promise.

Circumstances can be painful. But even when situations seem overwhelming, believers can trust that our sovereign Lord knows all, is in control, and lovingly works everything for His children's good. We can rest confidently knowing that the unchanging God of all creation is taking care of us.

Current Sermon Series
      The Gospel of John gives us a marvelous and glorious picture of who Jesus Christ is, His character, His motives, His interactions as He echoes the Old Testament declaration of God through His seven I Am claims.

Last Week:
      Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life. No one can get home except through Him. We talked today about what this means to us today.
      Sunday's message is usually available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      We will continue looking at who Jesus is by looking at when He said, "I Am the Vine," from John 15.
