Be Still Know

Hebrews 13.4 NLT

‘Give honour to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.’

Faithfulness is crucial to every relationship. Without it, relationships suffer from insecurity and uncertainty and cannot possibly thrive. Supremely we see it at the heart of God’s relationship with us. He can be completely relied upon. There is no moment when you need to wonder whether he loves you or will stay by your side. The Bible is full of amazing reminders of the faithfulness of God. It never suggests that life will necessarily be free from challenges and difficulties, but continually affirms that God will be with us whatever happens. I love the way in which Isaiah celebrated God’s faithfulness. He wrote, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.” (Isaiah 43.1-2)

As we worship God and get to know him better his desire is that we should reflect his faithfulness. For all sorts of reasons we often fail to be faithful. We get distracted or we forget or we are tempted to be faithless. But we need to keep our eyes fixed on God’s faithfulness to us and long to reflect that in all our relationships. In today’s verses the writer focuses on marriage because faithfulness within that relationship is not only crucial for the two who are married, but towards a whole network of relationships including children. Be sure that God is mercifully a God who is able to forgive us when we are faithless, but because he loves us he is always encouraging us to follow him on the exciting and life-giving path of faithfulness.

Question: In whose life have you seen a great example of faithfulness?

Prayer: Lord God, I worship you because you have been so faithful to me throughout my life. Teach me how to be faithful to the people in my life. Amen
