God is faithful and trustworthy not because we reciprocate those things... but because He IS FAITHFUL and HE IS trustworthy.
His character is entirely His own and is not affected in any way by what we do or don’t do.
Why is that important? Because we mess up all the time. And His love and faithfulness to His people is not based on how much we mess up! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
14 Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The Lord has taken away the judgments against you; he has cleared away your enemies. The King of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst; you shall never again fear evil.
16 On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: “Fear not, O Zion; let not your hands grow weak.
17 The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
18 I will gather those of you who mourn for the festival, so that you will no longer suffer reproach.[c]
19 Behold, at that time I will deal with all your oppressors.
“Don’t pile up treasures on earth, where moth and rust can spoil them and thieves can break in and steal. But keep your treasure in Heaven where there is neither moth nor rust to spoil it and nobody can break in and steal. For wherever your treasure is, you may be certain that your heart will be there too!” -Matthew 6:19 (PHILLIPS)
"So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth."
There's a succulent plant that has been growing in one of my grandma's planters outside for years. No one waters it, weeds it, or really even pays it any mind but yet it grows. I know it's generally a low maintenance plant but still. I have three in my house that I tend to on a weekly basis and they're the ones who look like they've been neglected. We can do all we can as humanly possible to take care of daily lives but God is the one who has the ultimate decision. I'm so glad- I'm sure I would have withered away a very long time ago if it was left up to my hands.
God is control of every aspect of life- even the seemingly neglected ones. Why worry about the big ones?
