A Trustworthy God
October 26, 2010 § Leave a comment
The Lord is trustworthy, says Psalm 119:137-144. God’s promises have been thoroughly tested through the ages (119:140). When trouble and distress come upon us, we find delight in the fact that God can be trusted throughout times when the going gets tough (119:143). In the congregation where I serve as pastor, we begin a new series of reflections on Christian life when the going gets tough (a three Sunday sermon series based on 2 Thessalonians). The understanding we need so that we may live (119:144) does not consist of more knowledge, but an integrated lifestyle of trusting God despite difficult circumstances. We do not worship God for God’s blessings, but because we trust God no matter what.
