Faithfulness

Through the Lord’s
mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new
every morning; Great is Your faithfulness
(Lamentations 3:22-23).
  Moreover it is essentially required in stewards that a man be found
faithful – proving himself worthy of trust
(1 Corinthians 4:2-Amplified)A faithful man will a bound with blessings,
but he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished
(Proverbs 28:20).
God is faithful, and renews His mercies to us every single
day. His steadfastness is surer than the rising of the sun. His desire is that
we be faithful just like Him. Faithfulness is something that we must choose to walk in. It transcends feelings
and circumstances. A faithful person is as faithful when the storm is producing
relentless rain as he is when the sun is shining. Outward things simply do not
shake the person of faithful heart.
 
Here are some definitions:
Faithfulness
: the quality or state of being faithful.
Faithful: true or
constant in affection or allegiance; loyal; firm in adherence to promises
oaths, or undertakings; firm and thorough in observance of duty.
 
The Father abundantly blesses the faithful. Part of this may
be due to the fact that the faithful person will hang in there through thick
and thin. It takes consistency to receive from the Lord. A double minded man is
unstable in all of his ways.
 
To find God’s best for your life you must be faithful! He
rarely speaks to a slack person! He’s already spoken 66 books full of
directives! And unless we’re after obeying what He’s already instructed, He’s
not likely to add more in the way of specifics!
I began ministry just by being faithful in small things.
Whatever I saw that needed to be done in my church, I just pitched in and
helped without being asked. There are so many who are much more skilled than me
to preach and to pastor. But God rarely looks at skills. He looks at the heart.
And there He yearns to find faithfulness!
 
If you’re not sure of exactly what the Father has for you,
just start being faithful. Two things will happen. First of all, you’ll be
blessed. And secondly, the Father will shed His light on your path, and you
will eventually walk into the plan of God for your life!
