Honesty, faithfulness, and trustworthiness go hand in hand. God does not fail us. God proves trustworthiness by his consistency in our lives. Proverbs 3:5-6 states, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
When we trust God with our hearts and minds, He guides us. God leads us in the right direction. His will and His plan for our life take center stage. Jeremiah 17:7-8 says, "But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit."
God is always with us and never turns his back on us. The latter portion of Hebrews 13:5 states, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." No time or space falls outside of the realm of never. God is always with us, and not only does He promise to remain present in our lives, but He also promises that He will never abandon us.
For further confirmation, Psalm 139:7-12 eloquently reminds us of God's never-ending presence in our lives. It says, "I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night—but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you." So, remember that God is always with you in those lonely moments or times where no one seems to be around.
God is able. There is nothing He cannot do. He is all-powerful and almighty! Ephesians 3:20 states, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
When you face challenges that appear impossible to overcome, you can take comfort in knowing that God is able, and because He is able, we are able. Jeremiah 32:17 states, "O Sovereign Lord! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you!" Additionally, Matthew 19:26 states, "Jesus looked at them intently and said, 'Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.'" Each one of these scriptures reiterates that God is able. Find comfort in knowing that there is absolutely nothing impossible for God. He is able!
