Faithful in All Things

10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. (‭‭‭Luke‬ ‭16‬‬:‭10‬ ‭NIV‬‬)

Our Heavenly Father is Faithful in All Things, and He desires us to be Faithful, also. My heart and mind strives to always remember this and to be consistent in my actions. However, my human self often struggles with this because of my inconsistency in my prayers. I allow myself to feel and think things that cause me to be hurt, angry, and upset about circumstances and situations that occur.

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” – James 1:2-4 NKJV

If I keep my focus on God and the fact that HE is in control of everything that concerns me, I am much happier and more content. I am able to do what I need to do, and I can make better choices and decisions. If I allow my Heavenly Father to take control of my life, HE provides and protects me in my daily activities. Faith and patience work together when it comes to growth in our relationship with God. We need faith because, without it, it’s impossible to please God Faith gets you going, but patience keeps your faith growing.

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1 ESV

Faith believes God will do what He says, but patience keeps us strong until we see it with our eyes. When we don’t have faith, we are not convinced that what we are waiting for will happen. People in this state usually use the statement “it is what it is.” However, if we are living by faith, we know that God is going to come through. It may not look like we thought it would, but He will do it.

Please pray for me as I am praying for you.
