I hear others saying all the time- God is faithful. I love to hear it because we all need to hear this time and time again. We forget that in up times and down times He is every bit the same. It's because there is no one else like Him, so we get caught in the everydayness of life, and we forget the heavenly truths that look us right in the face every day.
He is faithful to bring up the sun at just the right time, every morning. He is faithful to warm the earth just enough for the plants and flowers to wake from their sleepy nap. He is faithful to keep the earth at the right tilt so that we don't burn or freeze. He is faithful to keep us from troubles that we may never know about, this side of heaven.We can see when someone else has their feet pulled out of the fire, and they may never know it.
"Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it." 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24.
I gave you the first verse here because it perfectly explains what verse 24 means. He who is faithful will make you whole. He who saves also does the clean up work. We are being changed on a regular basis, when we allow the Holy Spirit to work. He is sanctifying us, causing us to be made in His likeness for His honor. It's a painful process, but only when we try to fight against His work. Let go, and let God! You will be happy that you did!
