This week I have been stressed over situations in my life. I cannot change the situations but I CAN change the stress level. By focusing on God’s faithfulness, I can move forward and leave the stress with Him. He is sovereign over all things, circumstances and people and He is forever faithful. I pray this promise about God’s faithfulness speaks to you today as it has to me.
Blessing as you walk trusting in God’s faithfulness,
2 Timothy 2:11-13
The saying is trustworthy, for:
If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
if we endure, we will also reign with him;
if we deny him, he also will deny us;
if we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself.
Promise: God promises that our actions towards him will be rewarded and that above all He is faithful.
Have you ever felt your actions for good will go unrewarded or that the things you say when trying to witness have fallen on deaf ears? This promise calls us to account for our own actions towards both man and God. The thing that makes this doable is God’s faithfulness in spite of our failings. If we will cling to Him in faith, we will be victorious. Today if you are tempted to doubt doing what is right or struggle in professing faith in Jesus to others, call on God’s faithfulness to see you though.
Lessons and Truths:
1. Giving my life to God and living sacrificially brings the assurance of eternal life with Christ.
2. God rewards perseverance in faith filled living..
3. Rejecting Christ will result in judgment for eternity.
4. Stumbling in my walk with Christ and faltering in my faith does not mean Christ will lose faith or give up on me.
5. God is faithful.
Prayer: Lord, I am so thankful for your faithfulness. You are always with me and desire that I live for you. Help me to glorify you in my daily encounters and speak boldly about Jesus and the transformations You have performed in my life. Amen.

Who do I need to speak to about Jesus?
