Devotionals by Rick McDaniel


I recently visited Yellowstone National Park. The park is open even during this Pandemic. The services were somewhat limited but still much to explore. There were many incredible sites to see like the Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone Falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.

But the granddaddy of them all is Old Faithful. It is the signature feature of the park, the picture on their brochure, the most recognizable of all the many sites. If you don’t see anything else in Yellowstone you have to watch Old Faithful erupt.

And I was able to view five eruptions. We had a room in the one wing of Old Faithful Inn that is open at this time. Our window looked right out at Old Faithful. I saw it in the morning and at night, I saw it erupt in different ways. But the one thing Old Faithful did like clockwork was erupt. About every 90 minutes you could count on it going off.

An Old Faithful eruption lasts 1.5 to 5 minutes and expels 3,700 to 8,400 gallons of boiling water. Members of the Washburn Expedition of 1870 named the geyser for its consistent performance. And Old Faithful is as spectacular and faithful today as it was 150 years ago.

Old Faithful faithfully erupts about every 90 minutes but God is faithful every minute of every day. In fact, II Timothy 2:13 tells us, “If we are not faithful, he will still be faithful. Christ cannot deny who he is.”

The very nature of God is faithfulness, the very character of Jesus is to always be faithful to us. Even when we are not faithful he remains faithful. He is the true Old Faithful.

Where do we turn to for help? Who can give us the strength we desperately need when life is so tough? Who can provide the hope that things will improve when there is no assurance of a better tomorrow? The answer is our faithful God.

We can count on him when there is nothing but fear, chaos and insecurity. When life is at its worst he will take care of us. He always has and he always will. He will keep his promises. His faithfulness means he will fulfill all his promises. And there are over 7000 of them in the Bible.

When this trying season is over we can look back and reflect. What we will discover is that God was faithful.
