HE IS FAITHFUL!

Dearly Beloved,
HE IS FAITHFUL!
"He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it" (1 Thessalonians 5:24 NKJV).
"You can't depend on anyone, not even a great leader" (Psalm 146:3 CEV).
The Lord God is more than dependable. When He promises, He is not only ready to fulfil the promise, He is also able to fulfil the promise. Human beings are completely different. They can make promises, but they may not be ready to fulfil the promises. They may even be ready to fulfil, but not be able to fulfil such promises. No wonder, there are many injunctions in the Bible not to put one's trust in human beings, but rather put one's total trust in God (see Deuteronomy 7:9; Proverbs 16:20; Isaiah 2:22; 26: 3-4; Jeremiah 17:5-8).
The case of the Nigerian president is a good example. Early this year, Nigeria was thrown into chaos at the announcement of increment in fuel pump price by the government due to government's policy on fuel subsidy total removal. To calm down the situation, the president and his cohorts promised that there will be palliative measures to make the new policy bearable for the citizens. A committee was set up to monitor the reinvestment of the total subsidy savings which is the amount accruable to the government and creation of some empowerment programmes for the citizens. Many citizens believed the government or rather gave the government an element of doubt. However, less than two months after the promise by the government to put in place some palliative measures, the president disclosed that the promise cannot be fulfilled because the government cannot provide the palliative measures. Expectedly, many people were shocked for the rescinding of the promise. However, it is an evidence that human beings are not trustworthy; only God is trustworthy and faithful in keeping His promises.
In whom do you put your trust? No matter how affluent a man is, he is not reliable. He can disappoint at any time. Put your total trust in God. He alone will not and cannot rescind His promise. Indeed, faithful is the Lord that has called us, and He will certainly fulfil His promises. "It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes" (Psalm 118:8-9 NIV).
In His service,
Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).

Such an incredible comfort to know that, no matter how UNtrustworthy those in the world are, there is One who can be fully trusted. Thank you.
