so you can trust Him to always keep His promises.
"O Lord God Almighty! Where is there anyone as mighty as You, Lord? Faithfulness is Your very character" (Psalm 89:8).
Faithfulness is at the heart of all that God is and does. His truthfulness, holiness, love, righteousness, and other attributes ensure His faithfulness. He is incapable of being otherwise.
God is faithful to protect you from temptation and the evil one. Paul wrote, "God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can't stand up against it. When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it" (1 Corinthians 10:13). When you are tempted to sin, do not focus on the attractiveness of the temptation, but on God's faithfulness to deliver you from that situation.
God is faithful to forgive you even when you are unfaithful. Because you are still in a body of flesh, you have a tendency to sin and, ultimately, to be unfaithful. How encouraging it is to remember God's promise, "If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself" (2 Timothy 2:13). But, you must be sincere in your repentance and not abuse God's grace. The Bible states, "If we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong" (1 John 1:9).
God is faithful to purify you from unrighteousness. It is God's plan for you to become holy and advance His kingdom. And, He is faithful to bring this to pass. Paul declared, "I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again" (Philippians 1:6).
God is faithful to fulfill His promises. Hebrews 10:23 states, "Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have, for God can be trusted to keep His promise." God is ready and able to deliver all He has promised.
God is faithful to help you in your need. He will never fail you! He is reliable. He is trustworthy. He cannot be otherwise. Your holy and loving God is faithful!
"If you are suffering according to God's will, keep on doing what is right, and trust yourself to the God who made you, for He will never fail you" (1 Peter 4:19).
