Psalm 12 – God Is Trustworthy
The words of the LORD are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times. (Psalms 12:6)
Everything God says he does. When the words around us sound uncertain or misleading, we have Someone we can count on. God does what he says, and says what he does. This means His words, promises, and motives are uncontaminated by any sin, unlike ours. Fortunately for us, God is not like us.
So what God has said, he will do. But how can we know for sure? The most convincing evidence we have is the Gospel. Instead of leaving us to our own ruin, God gave us his word that he would send help (Genesis 3:15). And in the first page of the New Testament, we have the record of that promise fulfilled (Matthew 1:1-17). God means what he says, and says what he means. God kept his promise when he sent the Creator and Sustainer of all things, to die for us. Jesus Christ voluntarily gave his life, so that we could have a second chance, a new life. That’s the proof. Everything God says he does! So what words and promises of God will you count on today?
