THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD!
Lamentation 3:21 ―This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
Faithfulness is one of the major attributes of God. Man is naturally unfaithful in most of his deeds; this is why it is very hard for us to comprehend that God in His infinite mercies can be faithful to those who are not faithful. Man is never faithful, man would say I am coming when in fact he is leaving. Man would say I will be there for you but when the time comes, you would not be able to find him. But the Bible says the compassion of God fail not, great is thy faithfulness.
WHAT IS FAITHFULNESS?
I) FAITHFULNESS IS BEING THOROUGH IN PERFORMANCE OF DUTY. In other words, God is a Faithful Worker, though things might not be going the way you would like them to go, God is working out some things that will give you favor. What God says He would do for you He will surely do.
II) TRUE TO ONE: When somebody is true to their words, promise or vow. God is always true to His word & Vows!
III) STEADY IN ALLEGIANCE: God is steadfast in allegiance with you, it might not be visible to you but, but He is at work.
IV) RELIABLE, TRUSTED: when God says He will do a thing, He will do it because His promise never fails. You
can go to sleep with God‘s trust working for you.
HOW DO WE KNOW GOD IS FAITHFUL?
1 Cor. 1:9 says ―God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.‖ You are called to serve a Faithful God. The Faithful God you are serving is not like a man. Our God never fails.
1 Thess 5:24 says ―Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it.‖ He will do whatever He has promised you. It may look late in your assessment but realize that God is never late.
In closing, whatever you are doing let this attribute of God‘s Faithfulness comfort you. Put all your trust in God. Lamentation 3:22. They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.
