fruit ~ FAITHFULNESS

But the fruit of the Spirit is . . . FAITHFULNESS  . . . (Gal. 5: 22)

One of the sights I had on my list of “must see” as we traveled through Montana and Wyoming was Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.  I had heard about this mighty geyser from the time I was a little girl.  It’s very name comes from the fact that you can basically set your clock by the daily eruptions of Old Faithful.  It is that reliable.

FAITHFULNESS ~ Greek pistos – meaning reliability and trustworthiness

Faithfulness is NOT  – – – – – disloyalty, inconstant, unreliability, dishonesty, falseness

Faithfulness is not my faith based on what God can do for me.  It’s not me believing when God heals me, when He restores a relationship, when He complies with my prayer request.  My faithfulness comes from who God IS, not what He will do for me.

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
