1 Corinthians 1:9 God Is Faithful

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

Searching for a faithful person is difficult. On a regular basis, people change their minds, change directions and let others down. Although sometime this occurs for a good reason, it is still difficult to trust others because when it happens, they are not completely faithful.

The faithfulness most people have are to themselves. They are quick to take care of themselves in whatever manner that requires, even at the expense of others.

As Paul opens his letter to the Corinthian church, he tells them that God is faithful and that He has called them into a fellowship with Jesus.

While many believers have chosen to believe in Jesus and God, they struggle with trusting and understanding His faithfulness to them. The struggle comes from the fact that many of the people they know are not very faithful in most situations. Others have let them down so many times that they struggle to trust that God will not let them down.

The small picture, short term vision that people have, makes it difficult for people to see God’s faithfulness. God is faithful in that He will always do what He has promised, even though often it does not look the way one may think it should look like.

As soon as one repents of his sins, God will forgive. At the right time, God will always provide exactly what is needed. No matter where a person goes, God is still right there with him. He will always give wisdom and direction, when He is sought out and obeyed.

God’s faithfulness is seen in what is needed and best for each and every person with eternity in mind. All a person must do is believe God.

Take a moment to look at all the promises of God. Ask God to reveal to you the ways He has fulfilled many of those promises in your own life. As you do this, you will begin to see how faithful God is to you and that He will remain faithful to you.

Allow yourself to put your entire life into His hands and trust that He will do what is best for you. He has called you into fellowship with Jesus and will not leave you, nor forsake you. He is faithful and can be trusted.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will know God’s faithfulness to you; that you will trust in God’s faithfulness for all of your needs; that you will remain faithful to God; and that you will grow in your walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 17:14 Will You Win With God?

They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings–and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers. Revelation 17:14

Battles and wars occur on a regular basis all over the world. Every time there is a battle there are two sides to the battle. In the end, one side will win the battle.

A choice has to be made for every person involved as to which side of the battle one will choose to be on. On the battlefront there is no neutral ground, one has to be on one side or the other.

John gives a prophecy of a group of kings who wage a war against Jesus. In the end He wins, because He is King over all kings. By His side will also be all those who are called, chosen and faithful followers of Him.

Along with the many physical battles that are occurring all over the world, there is a separate spiritual battle occurring in the lives of every person. This is a battle for the soul of a person against God.

Satan and this fallen world are set to try and destroy everything about Jesus. At times it appears as though the world is winning the battle. Promotion and acceptance of sin is rampant and acceptable by most people. It appears as though God is losing the battle.

In the end, however, God will win the battle. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. Every knee will bow to Jesus in the end.

Every believer who is a faithful follower of Jesus, will be on the winning side in the end. Alongside Jesus, they will win the battle for their souls and live for eternity in heaven with God.

Every day there is a battle for your soul. Satan is out to destroy you as he fights against Jesus. God has called you to be His child. He has chosen you to be His child. Remain faithful to Him, following Jesus in all of His ways.

As you are faithfully trusting and following God, He will hold you up and protect you against the attacks of the enemy. Though the battle may be difficult and long, in the end you will be on the winning side as God triumphs of sin.

Do not give up or give in, but remain faithful to God.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will follow Jesus with all of your life; that you will see God fighting for you; that you will stand with God against all sin; and that you will see the victory of God against sin and the enemies of God.
