Upwords; Max Lucado –He Always Remains Faithful

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

Did you know that the smith in silversmith comes from the old English word smite? Silversmiths are accomplished smiters. So is God. A silversmith buffets the metal until he is finished with it. Some silversmiths, I’m told, keep polishing until they can see their face in the tool. When will God stop with you? When he sees his reflection in you. “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me” (Psalm 138:8).

The pounding you feel does not suggest God’s distance but proves his nearness. Trust his sovereignty. Hasn’t he earned your trust? Has he ever spoken a word that proved to be false? Given a promise that proved to be a lie? Look up reliability in heaven’s dictionary and read its one-word definition: God. “If we are faithless he always remains faithful. He cannot deny his own nature” (2 Timothy 2:13).
