“If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.” 2 Timothy 2:13
Not matter what, God is faithful. It is his very nature. He cannot not be faithful.
Life is not reliable to lean on. Your friends will not always be reliable to lean on. The only person who we can have full confidence and faith in, 100 % of the time, is God.
I need this reminder all the time. It is so easy, when life knocks you down and nothing seems to go your way, to just give up and focus on all the negative around you. I believe this is the wrong mindset. This is exactly how the enemy can get in our heads and knock us out of the game.
We can choose to see hardship as an opportunity for growth. When we ask God to increase our capacity for love, He will probably put us in situations with those who seem unloveable. When we ask for patience, we will probably be put in situations that will test our patience.
I’m not saying that bad things are necessarily from God, but I do believe that he will allow certain situations to happen to help us grow. The great part is that, whatever situation we may be in, God is faithful. He is there for you always and will never leave you alone.
Just remember, not matter what, God is faithful.
Anyone else need that reminder?
