Understanding God’s Faithfulness

The theme of God’s faithfulness is deeply rooted in various parts of the Bible, not only in the images provided but even in the frequency of its mention.

God claims that He is ultimately faithful.

Other words for faithful are truth, firmness, fidelity, steadfastness, steadiness.

“The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice...” (De 32:4).1

“O LORD God of hosts, who is like Thee, O mighty LORD? Thy faithfulness also surrounds Thee” (Ps 89:8).

“And My faithfulness and My lovingkindness will be with him, and in My name his horn will be exalted” (Ps 89:24).

Biblical analysis

The Hebrew word for ‘faithfulness’ is ‘Amen’, depicting certainty, also meaning truth. It’s root verb means to confirm, support or uphold (TWOT#116). This support can refer to the steady hands of a parent who carry his child.

As a God of revelation, we are totally dependent on the words and pictures that He reveals to us. They are totally reliable and therefore depict truth.

Our Expected Response

We are expected to respond to His faithfulness. Because He has revealed Himself, then we ought to trust Him and respond to what He has revealed as trustworthy. Though the world is confused by what it sees, we can live by our trust in what He has said about Him and this world.

Reliability of our faith is in the reliability of God Himself

Our lives are to be shaped by this trust in Him. “Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness” (Ps 37:3). We become faithful by being shaped by what is true and real. “...The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness” (Galatians 5:22).

“O LORD God of hosts, who is like Thee, O mighty LORD? Thy faithfulness also surrounds Thee” (Ps 89:8).

“And My faithfulness and My lovingkindness will be with him, And in My name his horn will be exalted” (Ps 89:24).

“For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting, And His faithfulness to all generations” (Ps 100:5).

“He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark” (Psalm 91:4).
