10 Psalms To Remind You of God’s Faithfulness — By Dean Marini
As a former United States Marine, the word faithful resonates with me in a deep and visceral way. Marines spend hours learning the history and deeds of our predecessors. In fact, our motto exhorts that we will carry on the tradition and uphold the honor and name we work so hard to earn. We know that if others have been so courageous and brave, we can too.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been studying the book of 2 Thessalonians. Chapter 3 verse 3 reads: “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.” The Lord is indeed faithful. While many things in this world will fail us — economies, leaders, employers, sports teams, friends and family — God will not. He will always be faithful.
As you go about your day today, allow these passages from the Book of Psalms to lift your Spirits — to assure you that He is always with you. You can (and should!) believe in His promises for He is forever loyal.
10 Psalms To Remind You of God’s Faithfulness
“He will cover You with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”
“I do not hide Your righteousness in my heart; I speak of Your faithfulness and Your saving help.“
“Your love, Lord, reaches to the Heavens, Your faithfulness to the skies.“
“He sends from Heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me. God sends forth His love and His faithfulness.“
Psalm 89:1-2, 8
“I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make Your faithfulness known through all generations. I will declare that Your love stands firm forever, that You have established Your faithfulness in Heaven itself. Who is like You, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, are mighty, and Your faithfulness surrounds You.”
“For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.“
“The works of His hands are faithful and just; all His precepts are trustworthy. They are established for ever and ever, enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.”
“Praise the Lord, all You nations; extol Him, all you peoples.
For great is His love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord.”
“I will bow down toward Your Holy Temple and will praise Your Name for Your unfailing love and Your faithfulness, for You have so exalted Your solemn decree that it surpasses Your fame.“
“Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in Your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.“
As you read through this list of promises, remember that the authors of the Psalms faced the same (if not worse) trials and persecution we face today. Disease, injustice, betrayal, famine, natural disasters, political and social unrest, etc plagued their lands. Many of us today are going through some of the most uncertain times we’ve ever faced. But here’s the Good News: Through Christ, we’ve got an unfailing anecdote for every life circumstance! When your days feel unsure and overwhelming, when there seems to be nothing on earth you can rely on, turn your eyes to God. He is always faithful.
Prayerfully meditate on these powerful and divine Words every time you’re feeling uncertain. And, remember: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will never pass away” –Jesus Christ; Matthew 24:35.
