God does what He says. He performs what He declares. I Kings 8:15; I Kings 8:24. He is too faithful to fail and He is too powerful to be hindered by anything or anyone when He wants to do anything. He is the Almighty. Genesis 17:1. He is the Higher than the highest. Ecclesiastes 5:8. He cannot be stopped. The Bible says:
“God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” – I Corinthians 1:9
Every believer is called unto the fellowship of Jesus Christ. We can fully be assured and be persuaded that whatever God says is what will happen. Every time we meet the conditions attached to any promise of God, delivery is the natural sequence irrespective of where we are, our gender or nationality. For instance, the simple arithmetic says two plus two is four. The answer will remain the same on any continent, in any country, in any city or village.
“Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;” – Deuteronomy 7:9
Brethren, from the text above, God demonstrates His faithfulness (among many others) by keeping His covenant and showing mercy to them that love Him and will demonstrate their love by obeying Him. Please note that mercy is only needed when we have messed up. Mercy is needed to clear off all the mess (that we got ourselves into). One may ask; why will anyone that loves God and keeps His commandments need mercy? God’s standard of purity is beyond what can be attained naturally; it can only be accomplished in Christ. Matthew 5:48. Instead of punishing us for our shortcomings, God has chosen to faithfully extend His mercy to us so that we can become beneficiaries of His justification plan.
Friends, if you are a believer, then, you are a lover of God. Having accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior; you have been accepted in the beloved. Ephesians 1:6. As a result, you are a qualified candidate for His mercy. The implication of this is that no matter what is happening, you cannot be messed up by the enemy because God is too faithful to fail. His mercy will always come to your rescue. The lawful captivity around you shall be no more and the negative trend shall be reversed. You will sing the song of victory.
When God’s mercy shows up, merit is relegated. Merit may have said “no” to you and you know it but mercy is saying “yes” to you so that the name of God that is too faithful to fail can be glorified.
Scriptures for meditation: Isaiah 49:24-26
Jesus is Lord!
