One Generation Tells The Next – Psalms 45:17

I will make Your name to be remembered to all generations; therefore, the people shall praise You forever and ever.”

One of the many names of God is FAITHFUL. Our God is faithful. He always has been and always will be!

In this posting, I am calling on all my brothers and sisters, who believe in our faithful God, to help me with a special project for one of my students.

So, here’s the story: I have a 12 year old student that I have been teaching and mentoring in his new walk with God now for a few months. He believes in God and has accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. He is so eager to learn new things about God. He is like a little sponge, just soaking up new information and teachings about God all the time. Some of that learning is easy for him. But there are some things that he struggles to understand. What I love, is that he is asking LOTS of questions. Lately we’ve been talking about God’s faithfulness. He has said, “I don’t see God’s faithfulness in my life yet cuz I think I’m too little and God doesn’t seem to be answering too many of my prayers yet.”

Just the other day, while I was talking with him, he came up with a really great idea. As he told me the idea, I saw the excitement in his glittering eyes. I heard the anticipation in his voice as the words stumbled out of his mouth in an eagerness to get started. It is an idea that he hopes will help him in the process of learning more about the faithfulness of God. The idea? He would like to interview other Christians – those who also believe in God and have asked Jesus Christ to be their Savior and who want to live a good Christian life. He would like other brothers and sisters in God’s family to help him learn about our God’s faithfulness.

Here is what my student writes, describing his idea:

Ms. Kathy, as you know I am really struggling to understand about God’s faithfulness. So I thought I would like to conduct an interview with other Christians in hopes they might share their thoughts and I might learn from them. Hopefully they will have good things to share with me as I learn. Since I cannot do interviews in person (thank you bad coronavirus) I thought I would do them on Facebook and Blog Sites. Ms. Kathy do you think that your friends on Facebook and all your blog readers might answer 2 simple questions for me? They would be helping a little guy learn more about God. Please ask them to help me learn. Please.”

So, what do you think of that idea? Any blog readers out there want to help me teach a 12 year old about the faithfulness of our great God?

Here are his 2 questions:

  1. How do you KNOW that God is faithful to you?
  2. Is there a verse in the Bible that tells you about God’s faithfulness and you can share with me?

Well, I guess the challenge is on.

Ms. Kathy has already posted this on her Facebook page. And now, here it goes out on her Blog.

Hmmm, I wonder, how many responses will my little student and I get back? He wonders what countries those answers will come from?

Could one of those answers be YOURS?

  1. You can share with your student that long before he was born, back in 1983, I started a journal to record God’s faithfulness to our family. ( I explained the backstory on my blog in a post titled, “Proving God’s Presence”–in case he’d be interested in the story.) That looseleaf journal now contains over 1300 examples of God’s faithfulness–his provision, protection, guidance, encouragement, blessings, and more. YES–God is faithful! “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted” (Job 5:9).

    • Nancy – – I didn’t just like this response of yours – – – I LOVED it!!! Thank you for taking the time to answer me and my student and to share with us about your journal of God’s faithfulness. I’ve kept one of those as well. It was amazing to me just how quickly it filled up. God’s faithfulness is all around us to experience for ourselves and share with others. I definitely want to go read the backstory in your blog. Thanks again Nancy for sharing God’s faithfulness with us!
