Supremely Faithful Via His Word
Jon Bloom, cofounder and teacher at Desiring God with John Piper, has written a vital book of meditations for our time: "True to His Word: 100 Meditations on the Faithfulness of God" (Moody Publishers). What if you're struggling to believe that God is truly faithful? And what if it doesn't look that way to you right now? This conversation is for you.
Go Further - God is supremely faithful via His Word
Jon Bloom serves as teacher and cofounder of Desiring God. He is the author of four books, including Not by Sight and most recently True to His Word. He and his wife have five children and make their home in the Twin Cities.
The Bible teaches that God is always faithful, that He’s always TRUE to HIS WORD. Saints throughout history have affirmed it, and hymns and worship songs celebrate it.
But what if it doesn’t look that way to you? You’re not alone. The Bible is full of examples of God’s children struggling to trust him in seasons of disappointment, discouragement, danger, disaster, depression, and deep grief—only to see God’s faithfulness to them manifest in surprising ways.
These meditations are designed to help you grow in your ability to recognize God’s faithfulness in places you may not typically look, at times you don’t expect, and in providences—especially the most disturbing and devastating ones—that often don’t look like God’s faithfulness.
Because the more you see it, the more wonderful God’s faithfulness becomes to you. And the more you’ll realize that “all the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness” (Psalm 25:10).
