I’ve been casually studying the names of God again. This one gets me.
“El Emunah” – The Faithful God
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God (El Emunah), keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. Deuteronomy 7:9
A thousand generations!!!??!? Woah! I don’t get hung up on the “those who love him and keep his commandments”. None of us can do that perfectly except by the blood of Jesus in the forgiveness of our sins. Don’t ever forget he is also faithful to forgive.
Thank you, Father. You are faithful.
You know, friends…..
What if we would stop more often (like every few minutes) and really meditate on who our Father really is. Let’s declare who he is over situations that seem impossible and seem discouraging. What kind of impact could that have in our lives?
So I declare today that he is the faithful God over every circumstance and every difficulty in every pain and every disappointment that we face this morning. He is faithful. He will never leave us. He will never for sake us. He is faithful. He doesn’t change. He is true. He is faithful.
Father, I thank you that you are so faithful. I ask you to show your faithfulness in new ways to each one of us today. Open our eyes to see your faithfulness. We count on your faithfulness in every hard situation that we face. Thank you that you never leave. Thank you that you never for sake us. Thank you that you’ve never once left us walking alone. Father, you have always been here. You are near to the brokenhearted and you comfort and bind them up. You are trustworthy, true, reliable and faithful. We love you, Daddy.
