“Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.  Brethren, pray for us” (1 Thessalonians 5:24-25).

To be faithful means to address the place where another is placing their faith.  You place your faith in Christ, and rightly so, for He has accomplished salvation for all who believe.  He for whom and through whom all things were made has reached out to you so that you may have life and have it abundantly.  Come then into His grace and see that all He has promised He will bring to pass.

Lord, I know these ideas but often fall short of the faith to trust that it is as You say.  Help my unbelief so that I may know that You are always faithful and that my feelings are no place in which to have faith.  Yet You know that I struggle, so help me amidst the struggles I have so that I would learn how to be faithful as You are faithful.  Lead me in the way of sanctification that I too may be faithful.

Lord Jesus, You were faithful unto death, even death on a cross.  You were faithful while those around You fled and denied You.  You were faithful through all the struggles life brings.  Lead me to learn from You that I too may know how to be faithful.  In Your grace, perfect me according to the Father’s will in order that I would be one who is made in Your image.  You are the finisher of my faith.  Finish me Lord Jesus.  Amen.
