Hosts Wayne Shepherd and Rev. Percy McCray discuss the faithfulness of God. Is God always faithful? Even when it feels like we are abandoned? Listen to this episode to discover what the Bible says about the faithfulness of God even in our dire circumstances.
When we face a devastating diagnosis or other dark circumstances, we may question the character of God. Hosts Wayne Shepherd and Rev. Percy McCray candidly discuss the struggle of believing God’s faithfulness.
First, they tackle the concept of perception. It may seem like God abandons us, but our view can be skewed because of despair. “Our perception or what something may feel like, in many cases is very different than who God is—and what He is doing,” Rev. McCray says. “If something happens to you that makes you think God is not faithful, then there is something that we are misunderstanding.”
They also talk about God’s grace when we struggle. “He’s big enough to understand that we sometimes struggle…but it does not change the faithfulness of Him toward us and for us.” Rev. McCray shares about the faith of the Apostle Paul. “(He) came to terms with the fact that, ‘It is not in my strength that God’s power rests upon me. It is actually when I am weak— when I’m struggling—that the power of Christ rests upon me.’”
Learning to trust the faithfulness of God sometimes looks like a journey, rather than a constant state of mind. “We will be tried, and we will be proven by the promises of God on some level in our lives. At the end of the day, it is not where you start, and it is not where you are, but—ultimately—where you end.” Rev. McCray hopes listeners end with trust in God’s faithfulness through Jesus Christ, no matter the circumstance.
- “We need to understand that we walk by faith and not by sight.”
- “We don’t understand all that God is…we need to simply be prepared to wait and see what the Lord will ultimately do…He is not finished with us despite where we may find ourselves in the midst of a situation.”
- “Jesus Christ, because He was an atonement for your sins, past, present, and future…you cannot do enough things wrong to disqualify you from God’s faithfulness.”
