Some people make gods with their hands and worship them. But idols are not able to do anything that God can do. They can’t think, feel or act. But the Lord in Heaven knows all about you, thinks of you and loves you.
The Faithful God (El Emunah)
Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments. Deutronomy 7:9
The Lord is El Emunah, the Faithful God of the Future. Some people make gods with their hands and worship them. But idols are not able to do anything that God can do. They can’t think, feel or act. But the Lord in Heaven knows all about you, thinks of you and loves you. The Lord has promised to guide you, protect you and work all things together for His own good (Romans 8:28).
Because the Father is the Faithful God, He will keep His promises. The Lord is El Emunah, the Faithful God of the past. He was faithful to bless His people when they kept past covenants, and He was faithful to punish them when they disobeyed His commandments. You can see His faithfulness when He judged His people, and you can see His faithfulness when He forgave them of their sins.
As the Father has been faithful to Israel, so He will be faithful to you. Because of His mercies, we are not destroyed. His compassion is new every morning. Great is His faithfulness (Lamentations 3:22-23). The Lord is El Emunah, the Faithful God of the present. Your present is grounded in God’s past; because He has faithfully kept His word in the past, He will be faithful to you today.
Prayer: Lord, forgive me when I doubt Your Word and don’t believe Your promises. Thank You for Your reminder that You are El Emunah—the Faithful God. Help me to walk confidently today and to serve You faithfully. Amen.

You can trust God in this 4th month of the year because He was faithful in the past.
My prayer for you in this new month! (April 2019)
In the wonderful name of Jesus Christ. By the power in the blood of Jesus Christ. Almighty Father, Jehovah El Emunah (My faithful God). You are worthy to be praised. All glory, all honor, all adoration belongs to You. You are the Alpha that has brought us so far. You are the great oracle in our obstacles. You are the pillar of the whole world. You are the One that no power can oppose and stop. You are magnificent in holiness. You ordain the sun to rule by day and the moon and stars to rule the night. Father, receive all the glory! My Father Lord, hear my voice this 1st day of 4th month of the year of the Key of David. Let the purposes for which You gave your son/daughter in this month be established in his/her life, in the powerful name of Jesus Christ.
