The Lord Is Faithful

In all that has happened to us, you have remained righteous; you have acted faithfully, while we acted wickedly. Nehemiah 9:33 NIV


In Nehemiah chapter 9, God's faithfulness towards his people right from the beginning was reminisced.

However, it was also pointed out how the people of Israel have been unrighteous in the eyes of the Lord. But, this does not remove the fact that we have read from the first statement. THE LORD IS FAITHFUL.

Even before we were born, God has been true to every word that He spoke. He has been faithful to our ancestors from Abram, to us in the present, and He will continue to be to the future generations up until eternity. It is His character, He is unchanging.

This is not a permission for us to be evil, but an encouragement that no matter how iniquitous we have become, God's hands will never be too short to reach us out. He has His promises for us to fulfill, and He will. We just have to remember them, go back and call unto Him, and hold on to our faith.

Because of our sins, its abundant harvest goes to the kings you have placed over us. They rule over our bodies and our cattle as they please. We are in great distress. (Nehemiah 9:37 NIV)

Our sins would have brought us in a situation of immense pain and sufferings, and we are now on the verge of giving up. But, brothers and sisters in Christ, do not lose hope, take heart for He is faithful!
