Daily Verses: Galatian 5 : 22, Isaiah 11:1-10.
Key Verse: Isaiah 11:5: Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.
Faithfulness is one of the characters possessed by our Father in heaven. He is faithful to bring up the sun every morning, He is faithful in watching over and care for the lives of His children and He is faithful to bring to pass His words. In Isaiah 11:5, God’s faithfulness is likened to a belt of His waist that shall never be removed. That is to say, whatever condition we are experiencing, He is a faithful God, He is faithful in loving His kids, even though in reality sometimes it’s a one way street. What about us? Often, we are only faithful when we are experiencing joy and things that are in accordance with our wishes. Husband and wife can be unfaithful towards each other due to changes and situation that are not to their liking. Friendship can be fractured only because one party does something that is not acceptable to the other party. A person can walk out from his/her ministry because of a painful event or false hopes. If God possesses a shallow faithfulness, none of us will enter the gate of heaven. Let us learn from Lord Jesus to remain faithful to love, to care, to hold dear, to minister, to do what is good and pleasing God’s heart and others.
Faithfulness should act like a necklace attached to our necks and continue to hold firm wherever we go.
Every time I feel bored and lazy to do my daily activities and ministries as part of my responsibilities, I will remember that the fruit of the spirit of faithfulness must live within me.
Psalms 100:5: For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.
Daily Prayer: I will faithfully pray until my prayer list is answered by God
