Impossible to Fail

Impossible to Fail

The rejection of the Gospel by the Jews particularly bothered Paul. As a faithful Jew himself, he knew that his people had been given the covenants, the Law, and God’s promises. God had sent prophets to warn and teach them. Yet they turned their back on Him and all that He had done for them.

But Paul wanted the Romans to know that God had not failed. Regardless of the actions of other people, His Word is always true. He is always completely faithful. Paul cited numerous examples, showing how God’s principles always have proven to be true. Over and over again, He always kept His Word and fulfilled His promises.

Paul also taught that all people are flawed, both Jews and Gentiles. Yet God always remains sovereign. We always can count on Him and His Word.

David was another man who realized that people may fail and not live up to our expectations. Even our closest friends may break their promises and disappoint us. Even those human beings we consider the best can fall short. But David knew that God is different. His Word is sure and “settled” forever in heaven (Psalm 119:89). In fact, His law is “perfect” (Psalm 19:7).

Today, make sure that you place your hope and faith in God’s Word. Teach it to your family. Meditate on it. Put it into practice. You can depend upon Him. Declare His promises to be true in your life.
