I recently came across the story of a father who ran to check on his young son after a powerful earthquake hit the area they lived in. When this father reached the school where his son had been, he found nothing but a pile of rubble and debris.
As other parents stood by crying, this father began to dig. Though many people told him it was useless and tried to pull him away, he kept at it. Stone by stone, beam by beam, he dug through the night and into the next day.
Finally, he heard a voice cry, "Papa!" As he furiously continued to dig, he eventually saw the face of his young son. "I told the other kids not to worry," his son said, "because you told me you'd always be there for me."
This father was faithful to his promise.
How Much More?
If an earthly father would do this for his son, how much more will our Heavenly Father do for us?
God is faithful. He's 100 percent reliable, 100 percent of the time. He does not fail, forget, change, or disappoint. He says what He means, means what He says, and does everything He says He will do.
No matter what kind of storm you're in today—no matter what kind of debris you're buried beneath—you are never cut off from God's faithfulness. He is always there to dig you out. He never quits reaching down to try to help you when you're in need.
Will you let Him help you today? If you don't know Jesus as your personal Savior, then that's the place to start. Just say the following prayer aloud, from your heart:
I come to You in Jesus' Name. I admit that I need your help. Please dig me out of the mess I'm in. The Bible says, "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Rom. 10:9 NLT). I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus, Your Son, from the dead. And I confess Jesus as my Lord. Therefore, according to Your Word, I am saved. I trust You to take care of me now. You are faithful, so I know You are helping me.
