The most famous landmark at Yellowstone National Park is Old Faithful. For the past 135 years, this geyser has erupted like clockwork every 90 minutes. It doesn’t get much more faithful than that.
If only everything and everyone in our lives were like Old Faithful.
But sometimes our expectations are not met, or we are disappointed by people. That’s when we need to turn to our faithful Father in Heaven. 2 Timothy 2:13 says, “If we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.”
Our family spent this week at Yellowstone National Park. As we admired some spectacular landscapes, it was humbling to realize that God made the beautiful scenery for our pleasure. He is a loving God, and when we put our trust in him, he takes the most horrific situations in our lives and works good out of them.
There’s no one more faithful.
Psalm 117 says we should give God a hand for his faithfulness, “Praise God, everybody! Applaud God, all people! His love has taken over our lives; God’s faithful ways are eternal. Hallelujah! (MSG)
Are you praising God when you emerge from a trial?
Today, reflect back on all the difficult situations you’ve endured. How did your loving Father bring you through them?
When I admire God’s spectacular creation and think about His presence in my own life, I am thankful, because He guides me through every scenario, both good and bad.
He is a faithful Father.
