"'For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but My steadfast love shall not depart from you, and My covenant of peace shall not be removed,' says the Lord, Who has compassion on you."
God is always faithful to His Word. He always honors His promises. He does not lie and He doesn’t change His mind when He has entered into a covenant.
We, on the other hand, are often faithless, fail to honor our promises and easily go back on our word to Him. We often break the promises made at our baptism, the promises we made at our Confirmation, and the prayer we made so sincerely when we asked Jesus to come in and to be the Lord of our life.
II Timothy 2:13 says, “if we are faithless, He remains faithful— for He cannot deny Himself.”
God is still faithful to His Word and to the covenants He made with us in those moments of our life. When we find that we have broken our promises, the answer is to return in repentance to the covenant, to which God remains faithful. We will find Him waiting there.
Lord, Your Word is truly Your bond, since You have committed Yourself to it. Thank You for never wavering from Your promises. Forgive my faithlessness and my wandering heart. Receive me now and restore me as I return to You, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
