Faithful To The Discouraged – A.W. Tozer

thought of day header

For Monday June 20, 2022:


1 Thessalonians 5:24 (NKJV)
He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

Then there’s the discouraged person. “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it” (1 Thessalonians 5:24). You may have been serving God quite a while, but instead of getting better, you feel you’re getting worse. You know what’s happening to you? You’re getting to know yourself better! There was a time when you didn’t know who you were and you thought you were pretty fine. Then, by the good grace of God, He showed you yourself—and it was shocking and disappointing to you. But don’t be discouraged, because He is faithful that calls you and He will also do it. God will finish the job.

God sometimes makes us wait. He made the disciples wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4) and He may make you wait. But remember, God is faithful who called you, and He also will do it. This is our faithful God. I recommend to you that you withdraw your hope from a changing, treacherous and false world and put your trust in Jesus Christ. He is faithful, who also will do it.
