Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

God of Promise . . .

Psalm 138:1-8 NLT

[1] I give you thanks, O LORD, with all my heart; I will sing your praises before the gods.

[2] I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name.

[3] As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength.

[4] Every king in all the earth will thank you, LORD, for all of them will hear your words.

[5] Yes, they will sing about the LORD’s ways, for the glory of the LORD is very great.

[6] Though the LORD is great, he cares for the humble, but he keeps his distance from the proud.

[7] Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me.

[8] The LORD will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.

Reflection . . .

God makes a promise; faith believes it, hope anticipates it, patience quietly awaits it.


God is the God of promises. He always keeps them and He can be trusted to fulfill them.

God is faithful! Faithfulness is all about keeping promises, doing what you say you’ll do. God is faithful, and for that we give Him praise and thanks. We on the other hand continually struggle to be faithful in little things, but with God’s help and forgiveness we can know His faithfulness and walk in faithfulness before Him.

The following video is a bit long, but it’s a great example of glorying in God’s faithfulness. Listen and revel in God’s goodness, and faithfulness!
