If we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself. (2 Timothy 2:13, NIV)
Story #1: Yesterday, after 9 1/2 years of meeting in movie theaters and a high school gymnasium, my church finally moved into a new building of our own. 9 1/2 years of inconvenience and headaches. 9 1/2 years of disappointment and doubts when our plans for a church building fell through. Yesterday, as our congregation worshiped in that building together for the first time, I could only think of one thing: God is so faithful.
Story #2: My husband and I have been under financial pressure lately. Our financial advisor even asked to meet with us later this week…not a good sign. My husband suggested that, between now and the day of our meeting, we should commit to praying about our finances every single day. On a daily basis, we’ve laid our need before God, and even flat-out asked for His provision. Last Thursday, our financial advisor said, “Well, you had some unexpected good fortune come your way today….” A surprise $1,400, refunded to us by our escrow company. Money that no one expected, but God provided. He is so faithful.
And like Paul told Timothy, God will remain faithful, for He cannot disown himself. No matter the situation, and no matter our response, He will be faithful in return, because it’s His nature. It’s who He is. God, thank You. You are so faithful. Amen.

Soooo needed to read this…thank you for your encouragement!!
God’s faithfulness has been on my mind so much recently! The word has come up in my life numerous times in the past few weeks…
I’ve been finding this quality of God particularly attractive recently because of my lack of faith. Because of how often I doubt, analyze, pick apart, I think I have it all figured out. But God is faithful. He never stops seeking me.
I prayed for someone to practice Spanish with. The following week Sandra from Uruguay sat next to me in church.
