Verse Of The Day: God is faithful, by whom all of you were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.- 1 Corinthians 1 : 9

LISTEN: The faithfulness of God is for all generations. (Deuteronomy 7 : 9 ; 32: 4). He was faithful in the past, He remains faithful today and will be faithful even in the far future. (Psalms 100 : 5). He is a God that does not disappoint those who trust in Him. He is a strong place where the righteous run into for safety and are saved. God is forever faithful to those who are faithful to Him.

To be faithful is to have or show true and constant support or loyalty. It is to deserving trust. It also means to keep your promises or do what you are supposed to do. When the bible said that God is faithful, by whom we all were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord; it simply means that, God is worthy of trust. He always shows constant support for those who truly trust in Him. Besides, He cannot go back on His word, but keep His promises to His faithful servants. (Numbers 23 : 19).

Beloved, is God not faithful to you? Has He not kept His promises to you? Perhaps there are some areas of your life you think God’s promises are yet to be fulfilled, does that mean that He is not faithful? Of course not! God does His own thing at His own time. His time is not your time, neither His way your way, therefore you cannot regulate Him by your own time. Never conclude with yourself yet, God’s time is the best for you.

Trust Him, in His own times, sicknesses and diseases are healed; satanic yokes are broken, barrenness is turned to fruitfulness. Bankruptcy and emptiness are turned to abundance, failure is turned to success, disappointment is turned to appointment; death sentence is turned to abundant life, and the list goes on and on. Beloved, no matter the delay, frustration and disappointment you are facing, I want you to know that God is ever faithful. Trust Him and you will not be put to shame. (1 Thessalonians 5 : 24).

Having read today’s devotional, what is expected of you?
1. Trust in God and do not forget that His faithfulness is for all generations.
2. Do not allow your situation to push you to doubt the faithfulness of God to you.
3. Never be in a hurry to conclude. When you pray, act and wait patiently for answers.
4. When your burdens are too heavy for you to carry, cast them at the feet of Jesus Christ.

Daily Task: Always meditate and reflect on the faithfulness of God to you, and praise His name for all He has done.

Daily Reflection: God’s faithfulness is unquestionable, therefore, those who questions the faithfulness of God had long ceased to be reasonable.

Daily Prayer: Blessed Father, I thank you because your faithfulness is for all generations; help me to trust your faithfulness and remain faithful to you in Jesus’ name, amen.

Daily Prophetic Declaration: Today, I decree over your life, may God’s faithfulness locate you and yours henceforth, in Jesus’ name.
