God is Faithful

1 John 1:9 teaches us that God, “…is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”. We can have confidence that God will continually forgive us of all the mistakes we are making as a result the bible asks this question, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? (Romans 6:1)” Then the next verse says, By no means. 2 Corinthians 12:10 puts it like this, “Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” What does that mean? It means God having every perfect quality succeeds where we fail. God is 100% strong in every area including those where we are weak. When, we struggle we can take pleasure in the fact that God is right with us fighting beside us. God has said, “…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5) or as Jesus said it in the Gospel of Matthew, “…I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:20” When we are in need God asks us to make our requests to Him in prayer (Philippians 4:6) “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)” It’s God’s will for us to trust in Him, “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. (Colossians 3:15).” How, thankful we should be for God’s faithfulness, love and mercy we deserved punishment, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8). May we all have faith, trust in Him and follow Him. Amen
