Steps of Faith

What are you believing God for?

Do you trust God enough to take Him at His word?
Not only for your neighbor or friend..., but for you?

Saturday Steps of Faith
is our opportunity to publicly claim His promises for our lives. It is the place where we believe God for things great and small.

God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is
faithful. 1 Corinthians 1:9
Does that verse ring true with you? Just reading it stirs up something deep within my soul. It's a beautiful picture of my relationship with the Lord. Who was the initiator? God! He called me! He pursued me. His desire was for me.

Why? Because at the very center of His being, God loves. His desire is for us to enter into a wonderful love relationship with Him, through fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Though life may take it's dips and turns, if you ask me to describe God in just one word, my word would be faithful. He is faithful to love, faithful to forgive, faithful to protect, faithful to restore, faithful to meet our needs. He is all of that and so much more. He is faithful.

Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands. Deuteronomy 7:9

How about you? Will you join me?

Great is your faithfulness. Great is your faithfulness. Morning by morning, new mercies I seek. All I have needed thy hand hath provided. Great is thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.

"O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago." Is. 25:1

About ten years ago one of my girlfriends asked me, when we come to the end of our lives and people could only say one word about us, what would you want your word to be? My word was faithful. Like you mentioned, life and our walk with the Lord has many turns, but I pray that as He is faithful, so too will I.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to share and for seeking and serving Him faithfully dear sister. B.
