Spring, summer, fall, and winter-these are the seasons of the year. Life also has its seasons. Some are filled with joy, while others are characterized by difficulty. Take comfort because there is a principle from the Bible that can encourage and sustain you through every season: Our God is faithful.
We learn about this attribute of the Lord from passages like 1 Corinthians 1:9, where Paul says, "God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." To say that God is faithful means He always does exactly what He says He will do.
How reassuring it is to know that He will keep His promises to His children and never leave their side, whatever "season" of life they are in. No matter how deep, how dark, how depressing, how hopeless, or how good things may seem, the child of God can count on the Father's abiding presence.
So regardless of your present trials or triumphs, embrace these three truths:
1. God will be faithful to you because it is His very nature (Ps. 36:5).
2. God knows all about your situation; you are never alone in any season of life (Ps. 139:7-12).
3. God is omnipotent, so He has the power to meet every single need, and He knows how to move you through the various seasons of your life (Rom. 8:28).
Hold onto this fact: You will change and seasons will change, but our wonderful God is always the same. That means He won't fail you, He won't waver on you, and He won't vary-you can fully rely on Him. And He will never forget about you; He is with you always. Great is His faithfulness!
