If someone was describing you would they call you reliable? Trustworthy? Dependable? Reliable people are people that you can count on now matter what. Let’s first think about what it means to be truly reliable? The short answer is that it means to be trustworthy which is someone who is worthy of trust. Hopefully, we all have that type of person in our own lives but in this article today I want to look at what the Scriptures say about reliability. Both from our perspective and also by looking at God’s characteristic of reliability and trustworthiness. Consider the following verses…

1 Kings 5:56 “Blessed be the LORD who has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised. Not one word has failed of all his good promise, which he spoke by Moses his servant.”

Bible Verses That Show Us Not Being Reliable/Trustworthy

Exodus 20:16  You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

Proverbs 6:16-19 There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

Matthew 15:18-20 But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person. But to eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone.

Revelation 21:7-8 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.

My hope and prayer is that you are a reliable/trustworthy type of person. Both in the small things of life (like being someone that can be counted on to show up for work every day) but also in our faith. Is you faith growing and can it be said of you that you are reliable in matters of spirituality? Praise to the Lord that He is patient with each of us.
