God’s Faithfulness (by Beau Carpenter)

1 Samuel 12:22

For the Lord will not forsake his people for his great name’s sake: because it hath pleased the Lord to make you his people.

Here Samuel tells the people that God won’t forsake them, and it isn’t because of them, it isn’t that they are such great people, but the reason was because it is what pleased the Lord to do. It rested on God loving his people, not his people being such great people.

I am not that great of a person, I don’t have anything that makes me special, I don’t have anything that merits God loving me, but He has said “I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world” Not because I am special! But because he loves me. What a great and wonderful God we serve!
