Our Faithful God


2 Thessalonians 3:3 – “The Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.”

Some of the definitions of the word ‘faithful’ are:

•   Loyal – showing firm and constant support.
•   Steadfast – resolutely firm and unwavering.
•   Constant – unchangingly faithful and dependable.

Can you think of anyone in your life who is faithful, dependable and always there for you? You probably have friends or close family members you can count on. But they aren’t always in a position to understand your situation, give you the help you need or keep you from more trouble.

The only one who can do all that for you is the Lord Jesus Christ. In today’s verse, Paul reiterates that it is the Lord who will establish you and keep you from the evil one. It is in God’s nature to be faithful. He is steadfast – the same yesterday, today and forever. Unlike people who might react differently based on their mood or situation, the Lord is constant.

If He has promised to strengthen and keep you, you can be 100% sure He will. The devil may try to tempt you and weaken your faith, but he will not succeed if you remain rooted in Christ. When you stand firm in the Word of God and rest in His love, you will not be shaken. God Himself will establish you and strengthen you to face each day by His grace.

    Yes. Man’s mood keep changing…is very
    disloyal and diplomatic with changing situations. BUT Jesus ALONE is faithful. He never change. He is constant.

    To keep faith in God is ok. But to keep FIRM, STRONG AND UNCHANGEABLE FAITH in God is a challenging task at every adverse situations…

    When our strong faith is not answered for a broken heart….the intensity of prayer, the duration of prayer, and the degree of faith is gradually reduced.

    LORD give me a constant and firm faith without bringing neglegence to my prayerful life.

    Pastor … you are a good spiritual mentor. ..
    I learn, practise and train myself to obey Gods word.

    Please uphold me in your prayers.
