Have you ever just really sat and reflected on the character of God? Of who He really is?
The faithfulness of God section is something He brought about to my attention in the back of my study bible.
The first thing it says is that faithfulness is apart of God’s character. It is a part of who He is. God is always faithful- never backing out on what He says He will do.
In the dictionary, faithful is defined as
“God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with His son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:9
God who calls us to salvation and heaven will be faithful to give the grace needed to fulfill that call.
“The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:24
The Word of God is His promises- God cannot lie. So when He says He will do it, we have His word.
“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:18
Take time to reflect on these verses. They are God’s very words and He is faithful. He will never back out on His words, or waver them; these are His exact words that never change.
His words are dripping with love, so when you feel like giving up remember the faithfulness of God. Remember how constant He is.
Emmanuel- God with us… a promise from our Father.
