God’s plans, presence and promises
Of course, our timetable is not God’s.
Whether facing a personal crisis or a general uneasiness about the state of our world, God has not abandoned the throne.
When I take a step back and choose to dwell on the entire narrative of Scripture, the evidence is clear:
He is working out His good plans in ways we don’t always understand.
We can lament in times of struggle, and God listens to our heart’s cries.
But thankfully, we have the peace of His presence available to us while we endure.
That God is faithful to hear and answer our prayers, and that He is faithful to keep his promises are two things we never have to doubt.
28 Bible Passages on God’s faithfulness
The Bible is quite literally the story of who God is, what he has done and what he will do.
What a blessing that we have a record of this full account!
He gives us exactly what we need to know about His nature, and what we can expect from the one, true God.
Let’s dig into just a few examples of how Scripture teaches us specifically about God’s unchanging faithfulness to his people.
*All verses below are from the NIV translation.
#1. Exodus 34:5-7
“Then the Lord came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the Lord. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.”
After receiving God’s commandments on a second set of stone tablets, the Lord gives Moses a testimony of His faithfulness.
It’s not a loyalty or a devotion that’s dependent on our ability to be perfect; which was a good thing for unfaithful Israelites then – and imperfect worshipers like us today.
Even the fact that there are consequences for sin should be good news to hearts that long for justice.
Within that perfect justice, God also offers us the choice to avoid eternal punishment through relationship with his son, Jesus- who bore our punishment on the cross in our place.
#2. Deuteronomy 7:9
“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.”
In preparation for entering the Promised Land, Moses has a series of instructions and warnings for the people to understand the gravity of what God is about to do for them –
– and why it is critical they obey; for themselves and for future generations.
But he also reminds them over and over of what God has already done for them by bringing them up out of Egypt, through the wilderness, and providing for their every need.
If we fail to look back, we miss the miracle of what God has already done for us.
#3. Deuteronomy 32:4
“He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.”
Moses is about to pass into his heavenly home, but first he pens a song. In it, he proclaims the faithfulness of God.
Moses will not see the Promised Land himself, but he knows who made the promise.
He trusts that He will fulfill it, because he “does no wrong”; He is a trustworthy God.
#4. 2 Samuel 22:26
“To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless.”
Like Moses, David also sings of God’s constant-ness.
In the wilderness, on the run from Saul- God had many opportunities to teach David who He really was.
The Lord had preserved his life and David understood what it meant to fully rely on God’s faithfulness in good times and bad.
This song in Samuel 22 is repeated in Psalm 25 , in case we needed to hear it twice!
#5. Psalm 25:10
“All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.”
We see a pattern in Scripture that God’s faithfulness is his nature; it is unchanging.
However, only those who are in a covenant relationship with him truly reap the blessings of his faithfulness.
To know Him is to experience His love; to be submitted to Him is to experience freedom from the sin that blinds us to just how loving and just God really is.
#6. Psalm 36:5
“Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.”
Do the skies have boundary lines?
There is simply no end to God’s faithfulness.
7. Psalm 89:5
“The heavens praise your wonders, Lord, your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones.”
God’s faithfulness is recognized by all of heaven, too. It is inescapable.
8. Psalm 89:8
“Who is like you, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.”
Faithfulness in human relationships is not always consistent.
This is one more reason God’s devotion stands out to us. We crave faithfulness even as we miss the mark ourselves.
9. Psalm 89:14
“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.”
10. Psalm 111:7
“The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.”
If God himself is perfectly faithful, then it follows that everything he does reflects this quality.
11. Psalm 146:6
“He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them— he remains faithful forever.”
God established order and goodness out of nothingness.
His sustaining, creative power is another testimony to his faithfulness.
12. Isaiah 25:1
“Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.”
Have you ever stopped to think about God’s plans being eternal, just as he is?
It’s an amazing realization that his plans for us stretch back far beyond our imagination.
13. Isaiah 49:7
“This is what the Lord says— the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel— to him who was despised and abhorred by the nation, to the servant of rulers: “Kings will see you and stand up, princes will see and bow down, because of the Lord, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.”
14. Isaiah 55:3
“Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.”
God never fails to remind us of his patient, continual love and covenant that we can rest in, when we choose to follow him.
15. Jeremiah 3:12
“Go, proclaim this message toward the north: “‘Return, faithless Israel,’ declares the Lord, ‘I will frown on you no longer, for I am faithful,’ declares the Lord, ‘I will not be angry forever.”
He is the perfect Father, who welcomes us again and again.
16. Lamentations 3:22-23
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
The famous hymn, “Great is thy faithfulness” might be ringing in your heart about now.
His faithfulness is worth singing about!
Like a new day is God’s faithfulness; it never fails to arrive and bring new promise with it.
17. Joel 2:23
“Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.”
The prophet Joel delivers a message with a call to return to the Lord God.
God answers his people with pity and emphasizes the faithfulness that he longs for them to experience.
18. Zechariah 8:8
“I will bring them back to live in Jerusalem; they will be my people, and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God.”
In another call to repentance, God once again extends his love to his wayward people.
19. 1 Corinthians 1:9
“God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Paul reminds the church that God’s work in them is not done yet, and they can rely on His faithfulness to keep them “firm until the end” (verse 8).
20. 1 Corinthians 10:13
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
21. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.”
Let us not forget we have the power of the living God in us, as Believers!
The same God who grants salvation also sustains us and will make it possible to serve Him as we walk beside Him.
22. 2 Thessalonians 3:3
“But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.”
23. Hebrews 3:6
“But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.”
Because Christ is faithful, and His spirit dwells in the hearts of Believers – we have the power to remain faithful to God in the same way.
24. Hebrews 10:23
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”
Our hope doesn’t lie in this world and isn’t found in ourselves.
It lies with the promises of the eternal God.
25. Hebrews 11:11
“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.”
Not even having a baby at age 90 is impossible for God.
Sarah knew enough to know that God was faithful, and he keeps his promises.
26. 1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
God’s promise of salvation is always fulfilled for those who are willing to accept this free gift of forgiveness.
We give him our sin and shame, and he is faithful to wipe the slate clean and welcome us as his children.
27. Revelation 3:14
“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation.”
28. Revelation 19:11
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war.”
At the end of time, God’s faithfulness will be captured in the return of Jesus, the one called “Faithful and True”.
He will defeat sin and evil once and for all, and Satan will no longer be the Prince of this world.
Leaning on, and sharing God’s faithfulness
We can read about God’s faithfulness in far more than just these 28 passages.
All of Scripture testifies to His unwavering, unfailing steadfast nature.
He is perfectly good, perfectly wise, perfectly just, and perfectly trustworthy.
But let’s not stop with just reading about God’s faithfulness.
Let’s use these verses to live in light of this reality.
God is faithful to his people; let us be the Imago Dei He intended by testifying to who He is.
God’s earnest, promise-keeping love is the best news, but we can’t keep it to ourselves.
The time is short.
