Blessed be the Lord who had given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised. Not one word has failed of all his good promise, which he spoke by Moses his servant.
1 Kings 8:56 (ESV)
I wish I could say that none of my words had ever failed. But, I’m human. I can’t. My words fail. My words fail more than I’d like to admit.
Do you ever find yourself comparing God to human standards? You know you fail and you know those around you fail so you just assume that God does, too.
He doesn’t fail. Ever.
How do I know that God never fails?
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:8 (NCV)
Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:8a (NKJV)
God is love. Love never fails. God never fails.
The next time your tempted to compare God to your own standards, take a moment to reflect on these verses. Just as Solomon declared that all God had promised to Moses came to pass, all God has declared over us already has or will come to pass.
Remember, just because people have let you down doesn’t mean that God will.
