His Holy Name {Challenge 17, Faithful}

Challenge Word 17: Faithful
God’s Attribute: God is Faithful. As the hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness” says:

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

How does this affect my daily life? Do you ever get discouraged because the world is full of distrust and unfaithfulness? Unfaithfulness in business, marriages, friendships, etc.? It definitely can be discouraging but for believers, we can hold onto our Heavenly Father and know that He is faithful in all He does. And He is faithful all of the time! That is so comforting to know that in any difficulty we face, we can completely trust that He is there, and He is our constant shield. Psalm 91:4 says “He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” And 2 Thessalonians 3:3 says “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.”

Even when things in our lives seem rough or we are walking through a difficulty, we can lean on Him and know that He is faithful in all situations. Arthur Pink said “Far above all finite comprehension is the unchanging faithfulness of God. Everything about God is great, vast, incomparable. He never forgets, never fails, never falters, never forfeits His Word.” Oh such a wonderful thought. Do you doubt His faithfulness or do you cling to Him with assurance knowing that He is faithful in all things?

I have been super swamped these past few weeks, and I only had time to study and write it up for you today. I thought it was more important to give you the study than to get my page completed for you. :) I hope you understand. So, I may not have a page to share but when I create it, these are the two verses I have chosen to use:

Deuteronomy 7:9Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.”

1 Corinthians 1:9God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.”

I urge you today to cling to Him with assurance that He is faithful in all things! Remember to use the Keyword HHN09 when posting in online galleries, and to chat about the challenge, join us in this thread here on Splitcoaststampers. Until next time, In Him,
