God is so faithful. Before we pray 2 Thessalonians 3:3, look with me at some of the many ways His faithfulness manifests. The bible tells us He is faithful to keep us until the end (1 Cor. 1:9). He is faithful to deliver us out of temptation (1 Cor. 10:13) and our Lord is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). God is faithful in meeting all of our needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Phil. 4:19). He is faithful to keep His covenant and steadfast love with those who love Him and keep his commandments (Deut. 7:9).
Our Heavenly Father is faithful to His promises (Hebrews 10:23). Psalm 33:4 says He is faithful in His work and He is faithful in His presence (Deut. 31:6). All of His words are faithful (Psalm 145:13). He is faithful in witness (Revelation 3:14) and in love (Jeremiah 31:3). I could go on and on, but I’ll wrap up with today’s focus scripture:
“But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3 NIV
