“For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? (Romans 3:3).
God is determined to fulfill every one of His promises. Too much is at stake for Him to fail. Yet there are many who doubt Him and question His authority and abandon their post defecting from the faith. Does unbelief negate God’s faithfulness? He allows the rain to fall on the unjust as well as the righteous. He provides for believers as well as unbelievers. Seasons of the year that change for all to receive the benefits of change. Yet God is determined to raise up a remnant among His people who will obey Him and receive the full benefit of His promises. They will hear His voice and heed to His call. If not the parents, He may reach some of their children. What is rejected by one generation may have been embraced by their successors. God will provide future evidence of His truth. When all else is shaken and crumbles to the earth, His Word will remain. And what was once cast down and rejected will be raised by and through what God has already spoken. Our faithlessness cannot alter His faithfulness. What parents may reject their children will be open to receive. What one generation may ignore the next generation will fully embrace. God is faithful even when we are faithless. No actions can change what He has decreed. If prayer is communication with God and He answers prayer, then why is it that so many prayers go unanswered? The demand is for evidence preceding faith rather than faith in God preceding answered prayer. Faith brings us to a new place of trust.
