Wednesday, July 16, 2008  -  Reflecting on God’s Faithfulness – Lamentations 3:22-23

Our heavenly Father is always faithful to His promises. We can be certain of this because He made them based upon His unchanging character and His Son Jesus Christ.

Many times during the years, Doctor Stanley has been the beneficiary of God’s faithfulness to His Word. For example, Romans 10:13 says, “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” At age 12, Dr. Stanley believed in Jesus as his Savior. Despite his lack of Bible knowledge, Dr. Stanley recognized that he was a sinner. Once he trusted the Lord to forgive his sins, Jesus save Dr. Stanley just as His word said.

Around age 14, Dr. Stanley began thinking about his future and wondering what direction it would take. On the basis of God promises, Dr. Stanley believed God would speak to him and reveal His plans for his life.

In time, God made it clear that He wanted Dr. Stanley to become a preacher. So, Dr. Stanley began putting money away for college. His source of income was a paper route, which meant his savings account grew by very small amounts. When Dr. Stanley looked at its balance, he didn’t see how he could ever afford to enroll.

The Lord then brought Proverbs 3:5-6 to life for Dr. Stanley. God orchestrated a series of events that led to Dr. Stanley receiving a full scholarship. If Dr. Stanley had depended on his own thinking, he might have given up on his dream of college. Because Dr. Stanley trusted in God, He provided what Dr. Stanley needed to fulfill His plan.

Think about how God has worked in your life. What testimony could you give of His faithfulness to you?
