God Will Never Fail

But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.

Hebrews 10:39
God Will Never Fail Book Cover

We live in a broken world. The curse of sin is far-reaching, its effects apparent from the devastation of natural disasters to the evil of the human heart. Suffering, sickness, pain, and heartache are daily reminders that this isn’t how it’s supposed to be.

And that is where the beauty of the gospel bursts forth in a colorful array. The salvation of God’s people is not just good news for humanity, but for the whole world. God’s redemptive plan goes beyond our salvation to include the renewal of this world to the wholeness and perfection he designed at creation. The prophet Isaiah described it this way:

The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them. . . for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. Isaiah 11:6–9

One day, God is going to make all the wrong things right in our world. When that day comes, peace will prevail among all of God’s creatures. Wolves and lambs will live together in harmony. Little children will play with lions and leopards. There will be no more tears, pain, mourning, or death. All things will be made new. The knowledge of God will fill the earth as God himself once again dwells with his people.

Peace. Harmony. God’s presence. What a beautiful world it will be.

Does it sound too good to be true? For us who still endure the brokenness of sin’s curse on this world, the new earth can sound like a far-fetched reality that is out of reach. We might be tempted to not believe the end of all things that Scripture promises.

But God knows us too well. When he gave his vision of the new earth, he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true” (Revelation 21:5). It’s almost like God knew we’d have trouble accepting the revelation of this beautiful new world, so he gave us this reminder to trust him. His word is truth. He hasn’t failed us, yet. And he never will.

So, Scripture ends with these final promises:

All things new. Trustworthy and true. Amen.

His promise shows his heart. This is where he has purposed to take us. He isn’t satisfied with the way it is now. So I can believe with confidence that all the awful things that are happening will be taken away.

This is so encouraging since I have physical challenges. And we are living in a day that people are hiding the truth for control. I have something to look forward to: full and complete peace.

It encourages me because it’s a great reminder that I don’t have to put my hope in this world. I don’t have to stay stuck in this endless cycle of despair. I can look forward to Heaven, to a beautiful paradise, where God heals all things and all people. It’s a beautiful reminder of the goodness that’s to come.

This was such a great reminder for me! I love that he had John or whoever it was "write it down" because it was "trustworthy" and yes maybe bc it sounded too good to be true. It’s true there are days when I probably think "is HE really coming back and if so when?" What a beautiful reminder. God is truly faithful and Good. Jennie, thank you for your obedience to God.

It encourages me to not give up. To keep trying to do good by God, that he has a plan. He acknowledges that this world is not our final home, and there will be evil done to your heart, but keep trying and living out your life in his word.

The final promises of Scripture of the things to come encourage me today because I can have comfort knowing that there will be no more pain in the next life. I will see the ones I lost on this side of heaven again, I will be perfectly united with God.
