Can I give you some good news? God does not restrain His faithfulness. He doesn't hold back. TobyMac sings about it in his song "Faithfully," and David sings about it in Psalm 40.

Tag along with me as we explore God's faithfulness together.

In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week's Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include: 
    • Study a topic
    • Read in context
    • Define words
    • Complete a word study
    • Share with a friend
  • Episode Guide
  • The story behind the song "Faithfully" by TobyMac - YouTube Video
  • The variety of Greek and Hebrew words used to describe God's faithfulness all closely linked to God's truthfulness (veracity)
  • Looking up the word "faithful" in the English dictionary
  • Recognizing that faithfulness is an attribute that we should display (communicable attribute of God) - God is faithful, and we are to be faithful
  • Faithful and True as a name of Jesus - Revelation 19:11
  • God's faithfulness saves us from the despair of our own unfaithfulness
  • Using the Psalms Explorer in my Logos Bible Software to choose Psalm 40 to study the theme of God's faithfulness
  • Exploring the idea that God "inclined" to David - a state of engagement in a relationship - the Lord really sees us in our pain and wants to engage with us
  • God is ACTIVE in His engagement with us - Psalm 40:2-3
  • What makes this Psalm a Messianic Psalm - Hebrews 10:5-7
  • David's response to the faithfulness of God - Psalm 40:9-11
