Back in November 2004, I had strayed down roads I never thought I would travel but by the grace of God, I felt Him calling me back to Him. I remember meeting with the Pastor who introduced a verse that was so impactful to me to that I’ve held on to it all this time.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
I needed to know at that moment that no matter where I had been or what I had done, God would forgive me because honestly, the enemy had convinced me he wouldn’t and that I had done too much for God to ever look my way again.
All week long I’ve thought about how God is faithful. God was faithful then and He is faithful today.
He’s always heard my cries, my thoughts, my prayers and answered according to His will and His timing. He has shown His faithfulness more times in my life than I can count. He has shown me if I’ll trust in Him, He will keep the promises found in His word. For these things I’m grateful.
Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
