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 through us in every second of every day.
“Know that Yahweh your God is God, the faithful God who keeps His gracious covenant loyalty for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commands.” Deuteronomy 7:9.
God Remains Faithful to the Unfaithful
Do you remember the Israelites who proved to be unfaithful to God? Well God proved that His loyalty is unfailing and unending.
“If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.” 2 Timothy 2:13.
All believers can lack faith or trust in God at some point. However, God is always with you. In His faithfulness, He will continually call you back to Himself and His mission.
God’s Reveals His Faithfulness through His word
We continually learn about God’s faithfulness through the Bible. His word deserves praise because it is trustworthy.
“For the word of the Lord is right and all His work is trustworthy. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the Lord’s unfailing love.” Psalm 33:4-5.
God is a faithful God who can be trusted to fulfill all of the promises that He has said in His word.
Gratitude for God’s Goodness and Faithful Love
Ultimately, God’s greatest act of love towards undeserving sinners through Jesus Christ on the cross was the greatest testimony to His faithfulness. All we have to do to remind ourselves of God’s faithfulness is to look towards Jesus.
“For His faithful love to us is great; the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Hallelujah!” Psalm 117:2.
Give praise because God’s goodness and faithful love towards us is unwavering and everlasting. Next time you feel that God is not present, turn to His word and pray that He may reveal Himself to you. Always remember God is with you and Jesus has overcome.
