It’s 3:02A – I wake up in a panic. This seems to be the running trend in my life for the past few months, no actually, since 2018 started. Anxiety hits and the pressures of finances, relationships, everything rushes in. Sound familiar? We’ve all been here. For me, this feeling knows me all too well. This morning was no different. I couldn’t sleep in the wee hours of the night. Immediately I felt God ask me, “but have I not already taken care of you?” Faithfulness is one of the hardest things for me. God has proven Himself in my life over and over again yet I never seem to understand in my moment of desperation that God is faithful.
Isaiah 40: 28 MSG
Don’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening?
God doesn’t come and go. God lasts.
He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath.
And he knows everything, inside and out.
I was reminded of this verse in Isaiah about God’s faithfulness. I love The Message translation where it says, “God doesn’t come and go. God lasts.” He knows me, He knows what I’m going through and he didn’t even pause to catch His breath. How incredible the faithfulness of God this verse displays.
At my weakest, when there is nowhere I can turn, when I don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel – God lasts. If that’s not encouraging I don’t know what is.
As you make your way through your day, I want to encourage you that God is faithful. Whatever you’re going through, big or small, God is faithful.
