is a quality that God Himself inspires and enables.
God is faithful to us,
and faithful to His Word.
He sent Jesus to earth to be our Savior,
so faithful was He to His Word which He promised so long ago.
He sent His Holy Spirit to indwell believers
so faithful was He to His promises spoken by Jesus to His friends.
When life seems too hard
and we turn aside in frustration,
we need to remember
we can be faithful for this one day.
Then, at evening we can say,
“God made it possible for me to do the right thing today.
With His help I can be faithful again,
trusting the One who loves us more than any other.
reaching out to Him, forsaking our self-made notions.
obeying what He said to do.
doing what He says
and leaving the results to Him.
Eternity is but a breath away,
And I want to hear Him say to me, “Friend, you have been
good and faithful.”
