“And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered Him faithful who had made the promise” (Hebrews 11:11).
She considered Him faithful. She carefully thought about, and concluded, He was trustworthy and would do what He said He would do.
His faithfulness: what a thought for us, too, to not only consider but allow to wash over our hearts and minds. He is faithful. Dependable. Trustworthy. Regardless of how we feel or what we see. Regardless of the challenge in front of us. Regardless of how hopeless a situation appears. He is faithful.
As we near the end of this trying year and more importantly celebrate the fulfillment of God’s ultimate promise, the coming of the Savior, there is no better truth for us to meditate upon: He is faithful. He was faithful then. He is faithful now. He does not change.
“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14) “But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman…” (Galatians 4:4-5)
In contemplating the birth of our Savior – the fulfillment of the promise – in walking through these difficult times, in all we do, let us too, think upon – deem – consider – Him faithful.
