Feed On His Faithfulness

Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.
- Psalm 37:3-5 (NKJV)


Our faith in the word of God, in His promises and realities, is incomplete until we also trust in His faithfulness! The integrity of the person who has spoken is even more powerful than the words that they have spoken. It is because we have confidence in God’s ability and faithfulness that we are inclined to believe His word against all odds.

God will never compromise in His faithfulness even if when we fall short in the area of our faith. If He did so, He would be contradicting His personality. “If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, HE REMAINS FAITHFUL; HE CANNOT DENY HIMSELF” (2 Timothy 2:12-13).

This doesn’t mean that God will bypass our faith to meet our needs, but rather that we will always find Him on standby, waiting for us and ready to back up His word in our lives as soon as we repent and get back in faith.

To “feed on His faithfulness” simply means to meditate on the things that God has already done for you in the past. The conclusion will be that the same God who came through for you in your past will come through for you again in your present and future. This was how Sarah was able to believe God for a child even when she had reached menopause. “By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised” (Hebrews 11:11).

Beloved, do not be dismayed or discouraged. Do not give up because God will come through for you again, again and again! He will bring to pass all that concerns you.
