Our heavenly Father is not fickle nor flighty, and does not lie or change His mind. When He speaks, He acts, and what He promises, He fulfills.
Just like a determined child that wants his/her way, we ask God again and again for what we want, rather than what we need. When God speaks, His word remains unchanged. His truth is timeless and may not be refuted. Our Father is faithful to fulfill His every promise, and carries out all that He commands. It is our job to listen and obey. As we do, we begin to recognize that where man is flighty, God is faithful. He is true to His word and worthy of all of our trust. He loves us too much to change His mind.
Like a small child, we need a constant and reliable Father. Though He will not give us all that we want, He is faithful to supply, all that we need.
Thank You Father that You know our needs and are faithful to fulfill all that You speak. May our hearts understand just how worthy of trust You truly are. Equip us with an ever growing faith, so that we may embrace Your every act of mercy and grace. Amen.
