The Faithfulness of God

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Num 23:19


Hi friend, welcome back to another post. The last few weeks, I've been sharing with you some of the things I've encountered and learning from my personal journey in a series that I called "growth series".


Today, I wanted to step back for a minute and just reminisce with you as well as thank God about the last year. It's going to be a short post, but one of gratitude and thankfulness; which is why I've titled today's post: The Faithfulness of God.


About a year ago, this blog came to life after months of prayer, soul-searching, planning, fasting, obedience, more prayer.... (Okay I think you get the point). Initially, I struggled with the decision because I wasn't sure about the outcome and simply lacked the faith to pursue this dream. A year later, several subscribers / faithful readers and a faithful God who is still working on me, the blog is still going.


The word faithfulness according to Webster means "steadfast in affection or allegiance". In other words from Webster, it means "firm in adherence to promises or in observance of duty". I don't know about you, but that sounds like the God I serve.


If the past year has taught me anything, one thing it has taught me is about the faithfulness of God. Today as I sat in Church, I was reminded about God's faithfulness through the worship service and then when our Pastor read from 1Thes 5:24 which states: "He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it." (ESV).


Friend, God is faithful. And he will remain faithful to His Words. I realize this is just a simple reminder, but my prayer is that this verse encourages your faith like it did mine and that you continue on the journey and not give up.


What is God calling you to do? What are some promises that God has given you that don't seem like they're going to come to pass? What are you hoping for that hasn't come to fruition yet?


Whatever your answer to the above questions are, I hope and pray that in the end you still believe that God is faithful.


Conclusion

As I wrap up today's post (short as promised); I want to challenge you this next week to look for areas of God's faithfulness in your life, family, friends, things around you. Focus on those positive times and let God encourage and build your faith in spite of your current circumstances.


I do not own or claim rights to the above song, but it's fitting for the close of today's post.


Stay Blessed
