According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, the word faithful means “steadfast in affection or allegiance, firm in adherence to promises, and given with assurance.”
God’s character is the true definition of what faithful means. His faithfulness is sufficient in every circumstance, including the most enjoyable and the most difficult. No matter what, God keeps His covenant promise with those who believe in Him, which is given with assurance through His word.
I don’t know about you but sometimes I fail to see God in every circumstance no matter how big or how small. When I go about planning out my day, it doesn’t seem necessary to have God in the moments when life seems unimportant. Yet God is always present and working in and through us every second of every day.
