You found his heart faithful in Your sight, and made a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Jebusites, and Girgashites — to give it to his descendants. You have kept Your promise, for You are righteous. Nehemiah 9:8 HCSB

Faithfulness is a constant display of deserving trust or doing what you’re supposed to do. Our text reveals this stirs God because it’s His nature.

Beloved, Abraham’s faithfulness provoked God to pull out 6 nations to plant him and his descendants in their stead. Nothing excites and provokes God to action like faithfulness. There’s absolutely nothing that He can’t do for you when He finds you faithful. You cannot receive anything from God unless He judges you faithful. Whatever that’s lacking in your life is lacking simply because He’s not found you faithful to be entrusted with such. Faithfulness can only be fashioned on the altar of sacrificial obedience. God is still in the business of pulling out and planting the faithful!

Grace upon grace!
