Getting to Know God: El Aman

Today's topic may seem a bit familiar.  Several posts back, we discussed El-emet, the God of truth.  Today, we'll be looking at El Aman, faithful God.  I was tempted to skip this name because it was so similar to El-emet, but then I realized that we could never discuss God's faithfulness too much.  But rather than my saying much of what I said in the earlier post, I'm going to let Scriptures speak for themselves today.  See for yourself what the Bible has to say about our faithful God.  "Yes, He'll always do what He's always done.  He's the Faithful One."

Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations - Deuteronomy 7:9

For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. - Psalm 33:4

Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever. - Psalm 146:6

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. - I Corinthians 1:9

Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. - I Thessalonians 5:24

I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens. - Psalm 89:1-2

But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. - II Thessalonians 3:3

If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. - II Timothy 2:13

For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea. For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. - II Corinthians 1:19-20

And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof. - Joshua 23:14

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) - Hebrews 10:23
This is, by no means, an exhaustive list of the things God's Word proclaims about His faithfulness.  It's only a mere sample of what we know about God and His nature.  He is faithful.  He cannot stop Himself.  That's just who He is.  No matter what we do or how often we fail Him, He will never let us down.  He will remain faithful to us despite our faithfulness to Him.  That's El Aman.
