Faithfulness: Ten Days of Prayer

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. – Ephesians 2:8

How great is the Father’s faithfulness towards us! Despite our countless failures, missteps, and shortcomings God has remained ever faithful to His people. “If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself” (2 Tim. 2:13). God keeps His promises – He will not deny what He has promised He will give. One of His greatest promises to us is that if we ask anything in accordance with His will and in His name, He will give it to us.

Think – what an amazing promise that is! Remember that nothing is impossible with God, all we have to do is have faith in Him and believe not only in Him or on Him, but simply believe Him.

Yet, there is a part that we have to play as well for like muscles faith must be exercised. The day to day decisions we make condition us for how we will respond in times of great trial or great joy. “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much” (Luke 16:10). Choose in each moment of every day to be faithful to the Lord and His desires for your life. Although you may not know where you are going or what you need to do, continue to step out in faith and trust that God is preparing your way before you. We are to walk by faith and not by sight.

So choose to believe God – believe that He loves and is devoted to you. Believe that He cares and provides for you. Believe that He has your best interest in mind and that in His time all things will come together. Believe and have faith, that you may be molded ever closer to the image of our Savior, Jesus Christ, who died to cleanse us of our sins and rose again that we might have eternal life.

Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!
