-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful...and righteousness He judges and makes war. -Revelation 19:11 NKJV
All of us desire meaningful relationships where people can trust one another. One of the hardest things to overcome in any relationship is unfaithfulness. Once trust has been broken in a marriage, it is devastating and may take years to rebuild the damage that has been done. There are other situations where trust can be broken. Someone may say, "I am having a hard time at work because I can't trust my boss." Someone else may say, "I trusted my friend with a deep secret, and I was shocked when he betrayed my confidence."Trust is a word that is directly related to someone's character. We are not born with character. It is something that is developed in us. Trust is built in others not by those who are promise-breakers but by those who are promise-keepers. Trust creates security within a relationship.
Jesus carries the name Faithful because He is worthy of our complete trust and confidence. The Bible tells us that those who put their trust in the Lord will never be put to shame. He will never let us down. His words are true, and that makes Him believable; His actions are consistent, and that makes Him dependable; His power is limitless, and that makes Him reliable; His character is without flaw and that makes Him indescribable!
