“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever” Hebrews 13:8
The dictionary definition of faithfulness is loyal, constant, steadfast. God is definitely faithful, unchanging. I wish we could say the same about ourselves. Unfortunately, being flawed humans, it’s not possible without Christ.
So many of us have experienced unfaithfulness. How do you get over rejection? How do you forgive without somewhere, in the back of your mind, you still think about what happened?
I have known couples who have had many struggles, whether it be an online affair, physical affair, or an emotional affair, they finally make it through those difficult times by choosing to love and forgive.
It doesn’t happen overnight, but if both parties are willing, restoration can happen. God is the healer of broken hearts.
How many times have I broken God’s heart by cheating on Him? Every time I give in to temptation or desire something that I know isn’t good for me, I am cheating on Him.
The good news is, God is unchanging, loyal, constant, and steadfast. He is faithful. We can count on Him to forgive and take us back into His loving arms. He leaves the 99 to go after the one lost lamb.
Day 22 Prayer: Faithfulness
Thank God that restoration is possible; not only with our spouse, but with kids also.
Pray for loyalty and faithfulness within your family.
If infidelity has occurred, pray for the strength to forgive once and for all.
Lastly and most importantly, pray that you would be faithful to God; that your needs and wants wouldn’t become the focal point of your life. If you are faithful to Christ, everything else will fall into place.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37
