God's Faithfulness



Therefore, I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the Gentiles,

And sing praises to Your name.

 

2 Samuel 22:50


Throughout her historic seventy years as Britain’s ruler, Queen Elizabeth II only endorsed one biography about her life with a personal foreword, The Servant Queen and the King She Serves. Released in celebration of her ninetieth birthday, the book recounts how her faith guided her as she served her country. In the preface, Queen Elizabeth expressed gratitude for everyone who had prayed for her, and she thanked God for His steadfast love. She concluded, “I have indeed seen His faithfulness.”


Queen Elizabeth’s simple statement echoes the testimonies of men and women throughout history who have experienced the personal, faithful care of God in their lives. It is this theme underlying a beautiful song King David wrote as he reflected on his life. Recorded in 2 Samuel 22, the song speaks of God’s faithfulness in protecting David, providing for him and even rescuing him when his very life was in danger (v 3-4). In response to his experience of God’s faithfulness, David wrote, “I will sing the praises of your name” (v 50).


While there is added beauty when God’s faithfulness is seen over a long lifetime, we do not have to wait to recount His care in our lives. When we recognise that it is not our own abilities that carry us through life but the faithful care of a loving Father, we are moved to gratitude and praise.
