God who is unfailing

“Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.” Psalms‬ ‭89:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

For the past month plus I have been sitting, waiting for Abba to share with my heart what He wants me to post. It’s been a rather interesting season for me, one where I have been waiting for Him to give me that familiar push to write, to read posts, to even leave a comment. I’ve become so dependent on His inspiration and leading on WordPress, that I refuse to write anything that is not sanctioned by Him. Initially I felt ansy and uneasy; I wondered if the season of writing for me had come to an abrupt ending; but overtime, I began to learn that sometimes, I just need to be still and wait on Him, even if it feels like it is indefinitely.

Many of you have been with me on the journey of deep trust this year. You’ve been witnesses to the Lord breaking me in multiple ways. I have faced challenges this past year that have caused my faith to be stretched beyond anything I would have chosen for myself. I have felt the hands of the Lord disciplining me in so many ways as He’s shown me how proud and self-sufficient I’ve lived my life. He’s bruised me sorely, and yes, I’ve even felt Him crushing and pressing me in ways that are inexplicable. Through it all though, I can join with the Psalmists and many of you in declaring, He’s been so good.

“I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the Lord. The Lord has disciplined me severely, but he has not given me over to death.” Psalms‬ ‭118:17-18‬ ‭ESV

I recount how the Lord beckoned me earlier this year to begin the series on His promises. I had no idea how it would have unfolded and confess to delaying being obedient to His nudge for months on end. Scripture contains so many of ABBA’s promises, that I did not know they would be all unveiled. But, He continues to remind me that when He asks me to do something, I simply need to step out in obedience and move. He seldom gives us the details of the plans. He simply says, step out and move. Our job, respond to Him in obedience and move (or stay depending on the order).

As He began to walk me through the various promises of His Word, I began to experience Him in a fresh and powerful way. My heart began feeling enriched with views of His faithfulness. My soul became exposed to His tender mercies. My mind became a participant in His abundant grace. I began to truly experience that His love is irrevocably unfailing. Abba is the only One who is constant and enduring.

“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” Lamentations‬ ‭3:22-23‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Financial institutions have failed me.

Friends have failed me, and I’m sure I’ve failed them too.

Good health has failed members of my family.

My employment has failed my expectations.

Possessions have failed to give me delight.

Reading books have failed to give me joy.

Family members have failed to be good support.

But Abba, He has NEVER FAILED and dear friend, I know without hesitation that He will never fail.

It is His nature to be without error or fault. All that He does is wonderful, all His ways are perfect.

It is who He is to be victorious over everything. He cannot be beat or outdone.

His mercies to us are new every morning, great O Lord is thy Faithfulness. Hallelujah!

He continues to meet my daily needs each and every time, albeit they may appear to be met late, but He meets them and I am so so so grateful.

As the year 2019 draws to a close, I believe He wants us to look back over the course of the year, and see how faithful He has been. He wants us to through Holy Spirit’s lens observe how He has come through for us, time and time again. And as 2020 dawns, He wants us to take heart, to not be anxious for anything, to not be fearful of the unknown and unexpected. He wants us to recount His deeds and the marvelous things He’s done.

Yahweh our Lord, You are unfailing.

From my heart, to yours ❤️


Until next time remember, His Promises are our Guarantee…🙌🏽

  1. Yes, yes and yes, Deandra. So well put and very true. He IS faithful and loving to us as His own. It takes a great deal of testing just to show us the depth of our own ‘self’ so we can truly trust and follow Him. You know this. You have experienced this as we have and you write the truth, led of the Father and dedicated to obeying only Him. Well done.

    As this year closes it is good to read your words. They are truth. You have been very quiet, as we have been. These last three months have been very quiet for us too. We don’t fully understand it but accept this from His hand as you do. Though we do not see what He has in store we trust Him who has provided for us in the barren place to bring us through to the other side. He will bring all His people though, as you will see. This waiting is hard but at least we wait on Him and not on man. He is not like man. Jesus can be nothing less than faithful and true. He is our Beloved and we will yet see His goodness in the land of the living.

    We stand with you, our precious sister, in this waiting. Though the darkness is great the dawn yet approaches. We WILL see the Son this day!

    All of our blessings and love and a heartfelt thank you!

    1. My beloved Homer and Wanda, I have waited all day to respond because I’ve been waiting on Abba to touch my fingers.

      As He downloaded this post to me, I recall your many posts about “self” and Holy Spirit showed me that these trials and testings were to break my self-sufficiency and to implement a consistent God-dependency in all ways. Proverbs 3:5-6 is one such text that commands us to do such and if we are declaring to be children of God, we must walk in full obedience and complete dependence.

      I am thankful that you understand what it means to wait on God’s prompting, even when it comes to writing. In Him we move, we breathe and have ALL our being.

      As a new year is upon us, my prayer is that we will continue to remain steadfast in the faith. That we will keep our eyes on Jesus even as He begins to break forth and let His light shine even deeper in our lives. May we be always dependent on our Daddy for all our needs, and even our wants.

      I’m truly grateful that He is the One to whom we wait, the One that is faithful and true, He is Our Beloved.

      Press on my co-laborers in the vineyard. Do not grow weary in well doing, do not loose heart, do not quit, do not hang your heads down…the harvest is coming. It is nearly time to reap.

      My love and prayers to you both ❤️🤗❤️

      1. Our sincerest thank you for the prayers Deandra. They are more precious than gold to us.

        I see a wide river on a snowy winter’s night. The swift and deadly torrent has swelled it’s banks. A young woman struggles to cross. There is but a thin rope from one bank to the other to guide her. She must not let go lest she be lost. The water is biting cold and her body exhausted but still she hangs on to the life line. Hand over hand she battles the frigidity, the pain and fatigue and grapples with the rope. Her life is in her hands. The river will not quit nor will she. She knows on the other side will be safety and warmth. The moonless dark and falling snow wipes away all sight though and occasionally her head goes under. However, as long as she feels the braided twine between her frozen fingers she knows the way to go forward. She knows she will make it for she knows the one who put the rope there for her. This is faith.

        The God who put that rope to guide her and bring her safely across knows what He is doing. Hang on. Don’t quit. Remember both God and you are fully committed to making sure you make it to the other side.

        Bless you dear sister.

        1. You are very welcome. Prayers made for those whose faith remain fixed on Abba are like sweet drops of rain, on a very hot day.

          This is such a beautiful analogy. One that I can relate to in so many ways, especially during the past few years; and one that I know without a doubt you have been made privy to as well.

          Blessed are those who suffer for the Lord. Blessed are the one who receive His discipline. Blessed are the ones who daily declares, “nevertheless not my will, but thine be done.” 🙌🏽

  6. Wow. Such a blessed share. Truly He is unfailing. He is just the only one capable of not falling “He is infallible” but as men we are so fallible.

    I was looking at how the year came in a turn least expected and how it went from one struggle to another and He shifted my focus at the victory He won in it all. He came through, He always does and I was like “God you are too faithful”

    He is faithful.

    The new year ahead of you is of peace. Constant and absolute one sis. 🙏

    Happy new year!
    Regards to “him” too 🤗🙈

  7. My precious friend,

    Thank you for your post. It has triggered in me the realization and sober truth that God’s faithfulness allows us to go through the storm and the silence. As I sit here and contemplate on 2019 I realize that God has been victorious. He fought enemies for me, He covered me, protected me, provided for me and through it all still disciplined and taught me.
    As we go into 2020, let it be a year that we show a faithful God our faithfulness to Him. For all He is, for all He has done my prayer and desire is to be a part of a holy nation that is faithful to Him. May we all increase in faith.

    God bless you my love now and forever.

    so grateful to have you in my life.

    1. My sweet Di,

      I relished every word of your response and can certainly take them to be my own. Looking back, I’m so thankful that ABBA’s faithfulness allowed us to go through the storm and the silence. He knew that we would need the torrential rain, the boisterous winds, the dark part of the night and the stormy seas. Of ourselves, we would not have chosen any of that. We would have opted for sunshine, calm waters and a gentle breeze; instead of a sail boat we would have chosen a motor boat. Hallelujah for His Sovereignty.

      May the Lord our Father release continually His favor on you and your entire family.

      I love you deeply ♥️.

  8. I don’t know why I am just now seeing your last two posts! I looked a while back and didn’t see any new ones….

    But anyways, reading it today was God’s perfect timing!!! I read it when I was suppose to read it, just now….

    Wow is all I can say! It spoke to my heart!
    Do you realize just how far you have come since last year? The devil thought he could break you, but God planned all along to keep you!!!! Just from reading, I could sense how God has changed your heart from the trials He has allowed to enter your world. They were tough, but you were TOUGHER!!!

    Excuse me a minute while I rejoice!!!🙌🏼👏🏼💃🏼

    I think you learned a few things in that fiery furnace of affliction! I know I did last year. I faced things I never thought I would ever face.

    Like you said, it taught us to not fear the unknown, but to trust Him with all our might!!!

    Thank you so much for your encouragement! I appreciate you Dee. 💜🤗

    1. Awwww, Renee, you have my heart bursting with glee. Hallelujah!

      In some way, I do get a sense of my spiritual muscles being strengthened as I look back over the course of the year. Some things that would normally trip me up I’ve found through God I’m able to bear a bit more gracefully.

      By the way, no rush on reading the posts, girlfriend, I’m so behind on reading that I’ve given up trying. I’m like, “Lord, when I get there, You will have led me there.”

      I love and appreciate your unfailing support sweet friend. You love is not just palpable, but so infectious. ❤️

      1. Well GLORY!!! Love that your heart is bursting! I really hope and am believing with you that this year will give you more peace and joy. Trials makes us better and stronger, but I’m so glad God doesn’t leave us there forever….if so, I would have to give up the Ghost! 😱

        I feel the same way with with reading posts. I just can’t keep up! Lord help me! I have too much going on, but when I do, God always feeds my soul on each one I do read! 🙌🏼

        Your sweet words! They are like balm to my soul girl! 🙂 I love how you write from the heart. It is definitely touching! God Bless you mighty woman of valor! 😁🎶👏🏼🌻
