Remaining Faithful

Psalm 12:1

Help, LORD, for no faithful one remains; the loyal have disappeared from the human race.

This sounds like a response straight from our news headlines. The media shines favorably upon the evil, and those who stand for what is right have become villains. Isaiah 5:20 warns those who call evil good and good evil that judgment is coming. We must remain faithful, even when it appears we stand alone.

The Devil is a master of deceit. What appears to be true is not always the truth. Elijah thought he was the only faithful Hebrew in Israel when Jezebel was queen, yet God still had 70,000 who had not bowed their knees to Baal. Jezebel did not have the power she so greatly craved, and God was still in control. While it may appear that evil has taken charge of our culture, God is still in control in the U.S., as well. What currently reigns is temporary, and the coming King will set all things straight. We want to be found faithful when He returns.

If it looks like the enemy is winning in your own life, know that everything is not always as it appears to be. We have to accept the condition of our situations, but we must leave the conclusions to God. He has the final say. He will either deliver you from your trouble or see you through it. Either way, you become the victor. Don’t believe the lies of the enemy; stand firm in your faith. God’s word is more reliable than man’s, and we must come to the point where we believe Him and not the craziness we see applauded around us. God is still in control, and His word is still true. God is faithful to us, even when no one else is. In fact, He is faithful to us when we are not faithful to Him. Be encouraged in His faithfulness to you in the past, and know He hasn’t stopped being faithful to you.

Have a blessed day!
