5 Things to About Faithfulness
#3. Faithfulness is a lifelong process — Abraham exemplified faithfulness when he left his country for the land promised to him by God. But that was just the beginning. God repeatedly called on him to act on his faith.
We like Abraham, are called to continuously act on our faith. Adherence to God’s truth requires that we obey him and obedience requires action and action means work. Faith without work is as good as nothing. If you want a glass of water and don't put any water in the glass there will not be any water to drink. You can hold the glass all day long and go through the motions of drinking from a empty glass but it is still a empty glass and it has no water. To get water you have to do something that will put water in the glass. That is a part of the process and like faithfulness we are to continually do things that promote the Will of God in our lives. It's a lifelong process.
It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD the Judge, Jehovah Hashopet (Judges 11:27); we thank You for the guidance of the faith of Abraham. We praise You for the process by which we act upon the Grace which You have given us. We decree and declare blessings upon those who act upon the Faith that we declare, so that the works that we do by faith continuously support the Will of God. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
