God Is Faithful

You can trust Him to always keep His promises”
“O Lord God Almighty! Where is there anyone as mighty as You, Lord? Faithfulness is Your very character” Psalm 89:8
Faithfulness is at the heart of all that God is and does. His truthfulness, holiness, love, righteousness and other attributes ensure His faithfulness. He is incapable of being otherwise.
God is faithful to protect you from temptation and the evil one. Paul wrote, “God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it. When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). When you are tempted to sin, do not focus on the attractiveness of the temptation, but on God’s faithfulness to deliver you from that situation.
God is faithful to forgive you even when you are unfaithful. Because you are still in a body of flesh, you have a tendency to sin and, ultimately, to be unfaithful. How encouraging it is to remember God’s promise, “If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself” (2 Timothy 2:13). But, you must be sincere in your repentance and not abuse God’s grace. The Bible states, “If we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong” (1 John 1:9).
God is faithful to purify you from unrighteousness. It is God’s plan for you to become holy and advance His kingdom. And, He is faithful to bring this to pass. Paul declared, “I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again” (Philippians 1:6).
God is faithful to fulfill His promises. Hebrews 10:23 states, “Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have, for God can be trusted to keep His promise.” God is ready and able to deliver all He has promised.
God is faithful to help you in your need. He will never fail you! He is reliable. He is trustworthy. He cannot be otherwise. Your holy and loving God is faithful!
If you are suffering according to God’s will, keep on doing what is right, and trust yourself to the God who made you, for He will never fail you” 1Peter 4:19

God Is Just

“I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve” Jeremiah 17:10

God is absolutely just in all His judgments. Because of His holy righteousness, He cannot be bribed or corrupted in any way. God cannot be fooled. Because He is all-knowing and ever-present, He has all the facts at His disposal. He knows the circumstances and motives, so His decisions are always based on absolute truth. God is also a perfect judge because when He pronounces judgment, He has the power and sovereignty to carry out the punishment. “Everything He does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright He is!” (Deuteronomy 32:4).

Justice is a pillar of society, ensuring that the innocent are vindicated and the guilty are punished. But all too often, this standard for justice is compromised for personal gain by corrupt judges and unscrupulous lawyers. Consequently, many people mistakenly believe they can manipulate God’s system of justice. They think that God is fooled by their excuses and alibis.

But because He is a just God, His verdict will always be right. King David said, “The Lord is righteous, and He loves justice” (Psalm 11:7).

Because God is just, He will always treat you fairly. However, as the holy and righteous sovereign of the universe, God cannot ignore any act of sin. God hates sin with a holy passion. The psalmist writes, “You spread out our sins before You-our secret sins-and You see them all … Who can comprehend the power of Your anger? Your wrath is as awesome as the fear You deserve” (Psalm 90:8, 11).

God’s anger over sin should never be underestimated. You need to have a healthy fear of God to help you avoid anything that would violate your relationship with Him.

God also rewards right behavior. Although your salvation is secured by faith in Jesus Christ, your good works confirm that you are a child of God and determine the rewards you will receive from Him. We serve a just God, so what you do in this life will matter for eternity.

God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad” Ecclesiastes 12:14.
