100 Faithfulness is Key!

 

Faithfulness is Key!

 

 

A faithful man will abound with blessings….
Proverbs 28:20 ESV 



Someone said: “Being faithful in the smallest things is the way to gain, maintain, and demonstrate the strength needed to accomplish something great.” Joyce Meyer said it this way: “Faithfulness is not doing something right once, but doing something right over and over and over and over.” And Mother Teresa said: “I am not called to be successful; I am called to be faithful.”

What do you say? Webster defines faithful as maintaining an allegiance to someone or something; to be constant; loyal; having or showing a strong sense of duty or responsibility; conscientious. Being faithful is a good thing. It implies having an undeviating allegiance to a person, cause or institution.

What do you think the opposite of faithfulness is? It implies a failure in devotion to someone or something, being dishonest, disloyal, unreliable and undependable. God is faithful He keeps His Word. He is constant and unchanging.

God is always faithful to keep His covenant with us. Even when we are not faithful, God remains faithful to His Word (Numbers 23:19).
It is so sad that today many people lack faithfulness and integrity ,and fail to keep their word. This creates distrust, disappointment and hurt. It also causes others not to believe in them or refuse to become involved with them on any level for fear of opening themselves up to further hurt.

It is said, “Hurting people hurt people.” This should motivate us to become more faithful. How many times, myself included, have we been faithful only when it’s convenient or comfortable, failing to keep promises? It’s only later that we reap a harvest of pain and wonder why.

There are times when God will provide the opportunity for you to prove your faithfulness. He does it by placing you in seemingly unimportant positions, all the while observing your faithfulness in the small things. God will not promote a person who is unfaithful (irresponsible) in the small things. Faithful people are responsible toward the things they do and the people they serve.

They do not quit because they are tired, offended, or because there is inconvenience. They go on to complete the task they’ve been given. People who are undependable or irresponsible will not be given leadership positions. A leader must be responsible and faithful (Proverbs 25:19). People who are not dependable or faithful can be a pain to those who work or live with them.

Daniel in the Bible was promoted to the level of being a first president under King Darius (Daniel 6:1-4). He had already proven faithful through the reign of two previous kings. Darius promoted him because he valued Daniel’s wisdom and character above all the other men around him.

This caused jealousy in others who wanted his position. They began to look for ways to trap him but could find no character flaws (Daniel 6:4). Daniel was faithful to God and to his king. I truly believe that when you are faithful to God, you will be faithful to those who are in authority over you.

You know what happened to Daniel: his enemies schemed to find something to betray him and Daniel ended up in the lions’ den. But because Daniel did what was right, God protected him by shutting the lions’ mouths.

Will you make the choice to increase your faithfulness since we must learn to choose to stand steadfast and immovable in what we know is the right thing to do?  Now, that’s the choice-driven life!

Prayer for Salvation:

God in Heaven, I come to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I confess that I haven’t lived my life for You. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead so I might have a better life now and eternal life in heaven. Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. From this day forward, I’ll live my life for You to the best of my ability. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
