But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:3 NRSV
The Lord is faithful! Let’s pause for a moment and reflect on the beauty and the power of this promise. We know this is true because we are all benefactors of his continuous grace. God is there in every situation, giving us just what we need when we need it. In sorrow, He offers solace; in weakness, He gives strength; in our darkest moments, He provides light and hope. In the mountains and valleys of our lives, God is our constant companion along the way--never deviating from the journey. The Lord is faithful to us not because we have done anything to deserve it but simply because he loves us.
Sweet, loving, and compassionate God, we give thanks for your faithfulness to us. We confess at times, we become weak, and our devotion falters. We ask that you forgive us those times and help us to remember your mercies. Lord, please let us be a witness to others of your faithfulness. May they come to know the peace and joy found in you. Amen.
