It is one thing to accept the faithfulness of God as truth; it is another thing to act upon it.

 HEB 10:23 - He who promised is faithful.

 He is faithful in sending sorrow as well as in giving joy.

 The point is that Abraham willfully lied, and yet God was faithful to him.

JOH 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. The indwelling of Jesus Christ is the guarantee of our escrow blessings from the justice of God the Father. NUM 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Titus 1:2 - it is impossible for Him to lie. 1PE 4:19 - to those who were going through some measure of suffering, Peter says to "entrust your soul to the faithful Creator who will do what is right!"He is faithful in what He withholds just like in what He gives. HOS 5:15 I will go away {and} return to My place Until they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.God the Father is faithful, JAM 1:17.
The Lord Jesus Christ is faithful and the same yesterday, and today, and forever, HEB 13:8.
The Holy Spirit is faithful to indwell us, JOH 14:16, and to teach Bible doctrine to the believer, JOH 16:13. God is greatly honored when under testing for blessing or chastening, we have proper thoughts toward Him and recognize His divine attributes in action. GEN 12:13-19 - Abraham willfully lies to deceive the Pharaoh and protect his own life. Sarah was very beautiful and Abraham was afraid that the king would kill him to take Sarah as his wife. The Lord struck Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarah, Abraham’s wife. GEN 26:7 - he committed the same sin as his father Abraham; he lived in fear of losing his life and therefore he willfully lied and told the men of Gerah that Rebekah was not his wife but his sister.
