He Remains Faithful
We have endless examples of the power of great faith: the woman who forced her way through a crowd simply to touch Jesus’ garment for healing (Mark 5); Abraham who believed God that he would have a son when he and his wife were well past the age of childbearing (Genesis 17); or the centurion with a sick servant who had so much faith that he did not request the presence of Jesus to heal his servant, but believed just a word from the Lord could do it (Matthew 8).
Some of us are not much different from the people in these stories. Maybe you have been faithfully praying for your child’s healing or your own healing, but you never considered that the situation might actually worsen. Maybe you have been expecting God to heal a strained relationship, but you never thought it would end up in a break-up or separation. You might have been believing God for a supernatural encounter with Him, only to hear radio-silence every time you pray. Or maybe you’ve been trusting God to be more financially stable, and all of a sudden, you’ve lost your job or been furloughed due to the economic recession.
You need to know that it is never too late for God! Although your faith may have been shaken up, He is no less faithful! He is still the same Faithful Father to you, because that is His nature and He cannot deny Himself (2 Timothy 2:13)! It may seem like God is too late on the scene but have faith – even if it’s just a little – and believe in God’s character even when you can’t see His hand! Believe that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Believe that He always stays true to His word. And believe that even if you’ve never seen anything like the miracle you need from Him, God can still do it! It’s not too late, even if you think all hope is lost. The darkest situations are the perfect settings for the light of God to shine brightest. Only have enough faith to continue to call on Jesus. Like the popular song goes, “When I call on Jesus, all things are possible!”
