When someone is faithful, it implies unswerving alliance to a person, thing, oath or promise by which a bond was given. You remain dedicated, even when the going gets tough and you remain loyal, even when temptations come your way. True Faithfulness brings the greatest security but when it is broken, it brings the greatest destruction and heartache.
Hebrews 11.1 tells us that, ”Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
As a Christian, Faithfulness is our foundation because we know that “without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever comes to God must believe that he exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.” (Hebrews 11.6) It is for these reasons that God calls us to “walk by faith and not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7)
Aspects of Faithfulness:
We can refer to GOD’s Faithfulness TO YOU and to the promises He has given you. To think God is forever Faithful to me gives me such a security! No matter what I do, He will always be there waiting for me…. He is unwavering towards us. He is always constant, never changing, always the same. He is our example of true Faithfulness. He will never leave nor forsake us (Hebrews 13.5).
OUR Faithfulness TO GOD and our belief in Him. How strong is your faith? Do you walk by faith even when your sight and feelings tell you not to? This is one of the greatest challenges! To keep walking the straight and narrow road, believing in His Promises, even when the road is dark and you want to give up. Do you persevere through the storms and remain dedicated, committed and steady? Don’t choose fear, Choose Faith ❤️
OUR Faithfulness TO OTHERS such as Our spouse, children, work, community and friends….
We should never criticize or ridicule those we love to other people. Think of the security it brings your children when they know you are always faithful in defending them, speaking positively about them and keeping all your promises to them. Be that loyal friend who people can trust will never gossip, even when it is tempting!
We must always remain faithful to others with our actions, words, emotions and thoughts. Ensuring we have physical and emotional boundaries with others, also helps protect relationships and maintain fidelity and faithfulness within them.
Matthew 21:22 tells Us the power of being Faithful- “whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have FAITH”. Faith, even as small as a mustard seed, is the power that allows you to Move Mountains! (Matthew 17.20).
God calls us to be a faithful and faith-filled people. People who are committed, constant, loyal and devoted no matter what life throws at us. To be a dependable and trustworthy people. Not people who are tossed and blown about by every wind ( Ephesians 4.14).
Without Faith we have nothing, can do nothing and have no hope. So choose Faith, choose to be a Faithful and Faith-filled person! Grow your faithfulness ❤️
