God Is Faithful


 

1 Corinthians 1:9

 

“God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,” 1 Corinthians 1:9.

 

The Greek translation of this verse begins this way. Faithful is God. Faithfulness is an attribute of God. He cannot be any other way. God is faithful the same way that He is love. Who, in their right mind, would want to put his life in a wishy-washy god?

 

I do not know about you, but I am a high maintenance child of God in need of a faithful Father. Thankfully, I am not alone. You need Him, too. God fills this need completely and perfectly. As hard as he might try, an earthy father can only do what is humanly possible but our Heavenly Father is not bound by humanity. He is always available to help us, to hear us and to keep us.

 

Have you ever seen two siblings competing for their father’s attention? Well, we do not have to compete! God’s schedule is always open for each of His children. He does not have to change an appointment, clear His list or fit us in between other commitments. He is one hundred percent in tune with us at anytime. He is not distracted by anything, even by Satan.

 

When Satan tries to discourage us, all we must do is remember that God is faithful. He will never leave us or forsake us. We are His children and He is our Father.

 

REFLECTION

 

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it 1 Cor. 10:13).
