He Will Never Let You Down

(Today’s post by Joshua Jones)
Psalm 105
People will let you downGod is faithful. Sounds a little cliché right? I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that. However, God’s faithfulness is far from cliche. As you read through Psalms, and Scripture in its entirety, this truth is seen over and over. What does it mean that God is faithful? He holds true to his promises. God always does what he promises to do, and we can depend on him never to be unfaithful to his promises. 
God’s promises are always fulfilled. In today’s passage, the Psalmist exhorts that God’s faithfulness is properly accompanied by his praise: 
“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell of all his wonderful acts.” 
For the rest of the chapter, the Psalmist dives into a brief history lesson of the Israelites. Every person hearing this Psalm would have grown up hearing the stories of God’s promises coming true to his people. Remember back in Genesis when God made a promise to Abraham? He promised Abraham that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky. He also told Abraham that he would make a great nation out of him, and that all people on earth would be blessed through his bloodline. The Psalmist continues to remind God’s people of this promise. God freed his people from the slavery of the Egyptians. He delivered a land of promise to his people. He upheld his promise, and hearing these stories over again, His people would be filled with gratitude and praise. 
So, what is our response to this passage? We may or may not have grown up hearing the stories of God’s faithfulness. We may be in seasons of life where God’s faithfulness seems to be non-existent. God’s faithfulness may be abundantly overflowing in our lives as well. Regardless, what do we do? 
Verse 4 reads: “Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.”
Because God is faithful, we can put our trust in Him. We can praise him for his promises that have been fulfilled. We can know that he will fulfill those that have not come to fruition yet. We can know that God is for us. God will not break a promise, and in that we can find strength. Whether you are walking today in God’s answered promises, or you are waiting on those promises to be answered, seek his face. Remember what he has done for his people. Know that God will not let you down.
