He Remains Faithful

 

December 30

 

Read 2 Timothy 2:12-13

If we endure, we will also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He also will deny us; if we are faithless, He remains faithful-for He cannot deny Himself.

 

Reflect

How does this verse challenge you to faithfully persevere? How does it encourage you in your struggles?

 

I don’t know about you, but I have been disappointed in my faithfulness to God on more than one occasion. I have doubted Him when I should have believed Him. I have questioned His ways when I should have just accepted them. I have failed to speak up when given the opportunity to speak His truth. I have looked the other way instead of engaging in acts of compassion in His name.

 

If salvation were based on acts of faithfulness, we would all fail. What a hopeless feeling it must be to believe that our salvation is based on our faithfulness to our faith! Thankfully, our faith is not in our own faithfulness but in the faithfulness of Jesus Christ.

 

He is faithful, and He has promised us salvation. If we look to Him and put our trust in His work on the cross, He will forgive our sins and grant us everlasting life. Then, even when we fail, He remains faithful.

 

But friends, if we deny Him and reject His gift of salvation, He will deny us as well. When we stand before the Father, we will either stand before Him with Jesus faithfully representing us, or we will stand before Him all alone. Standing alone before God after denying Christ will be a terrifying thing for sure, and sadly, many have chosen that fate.

 

But be encouraged, friends. If you have accepted Christ, even in your failing, Christ remains faithful. Faithfulness is who He is. And He cannot deny Himself.

 

Pray

God, Thank You for Your great faithfulness. Even when my faith wavers or I have my doubts, Your faithfulness to me stands firm. I am undeserving but so grateful. Amen.

The Lords faithfulness, is like a cool drink of water in the middle of a hot and dry never ending desert. Believing in it; is the begining of becoming anxiety free. No more pills or the fear that dogs you with the problems that times of anxiety can bring. Satan loves using anxiety and doubt to render Gods children useless in spreading His word and living healthy lifestyles. We need to keep looking up and let God bless us as much as we'll let Him. Have a Blessed New years... Fishnwell!!
Come Lord Jesus, come...Amen.
My God is faithful. pure, prefect, Holy and justify.
Lord, I know that I sometimes do not remain as faithful as I should or put everything in Your capable hands. But I am so grateful that You are always faithful and gracious to me. I need to allow You to handle the day to day struggles of my life and just trust and believe and know that You will have my best interests and will never leave or forsake me. Lead and guide me Lord. In Your Son Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
Amen.
Everyday is someway I fail the Lord Jesus. I am so glad he is faithful to me. I pray a day will come where I submit completely to his will in my life so I can glorify his wonderful name and worth. I hate the sin that so easily takes me away from trusting him! Help me Lord Jesus. Amen
Thanks for the encouragement this morning. I love you Lord in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.
Lord, thank you for never turning your back on me. I'm sorry I fail you so much. Help me to over come and not be discouraged. I love you my KING
Thank you for helping us appreciate our God in heaven Amen
Amen. I too am guilty and am so ashamed. Forgive me o Lord and help me to be more faithful.
