Welcome to Faith Connections Friday! I am so glad you joined us!
Scripture is abundant with examples of God’s faithfulness. His covenant with Abraham as the father of many nations. His promise to David that he would be king and his descendant would be the Messiah. His promise to Mary that she would bear the Messiah. His trustworthiness to the disciples when He explained the Scripture, the Word of God. His forgiveness to Peter when he betrayed Him. And His promise to us that His Word is truth and will be fulfilled. These are just a few examples of His faithfulness in Scripture.
There are many times I recognize God’s faithfulness. His continued patience when I do not seem to get it. His unconditional love when I have a hard time trusting Him for the outcome. His protection when I could have gone down a wrong path, and He delivered me. I am sure you could identify several times in which God has been faithful.
God’s faithfulness shows His character as reliable, trustworthy, and consistent. God also develops this characteristic in us to make us more like Him. As we grow, we exhibit faithfulness when we put others before ourselves and help others flourish, thrive, and excel. This involves developing relationships of loyalty, trust, and forgiveness.
What do you think of when you think of the faithfulness of God? He is all these things and more.
Two songs that speak to the faithfulness of God: The hymn, “Great is Thy Faithfulness” and “Do It Again” by Elevation Worship. Both declare that God never fails. He keeps His promises. Great is His faithfulness! Enjoy!
Lord, thank You for being so faithful! For all that You are—You are completely faithful to me. When I stray, You are still there. Great is Your faithfulness. In Your most precious name, Amen.
