        (01/23/2000) because of His faithfulness
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: because of His faithfulness

I think what has really sustained me through all these
years is His faithfulness. I remember when I was much
younger and a new believer in Christ, I told God that
I will be faithful to Him forever and I will never
leave Him or forsake Him.

As I grew older, I came to realise that it is the
other way round.

[Joshua 1:5]
No one will be able to stand up against you all the
days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be
with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

[Joshua 1:9]
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good
courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for
the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou

Not only am I not to be afraid, I am not to be
dismayed (not to be discouraged, to lose heart, to
lose hope)
because He has promised me that He is WITH

There were times when I wasn't where God wanted me to
be. But I believe that He stuck on to me and He never
left me or forsook me. That is why when I came back to
Him to where I think He wants me to be now, I have
told God that I will learn to be faithful to Him. When
I enter into a ministry and serve, it is not because I
feel like it, but because I have made a commitment to
Him, a commitment that I want to honour.

We know that we can depend on God to deliver us, to
help us, to comfort us. Can He depend on us? God has
asked us to follow in His footsteps and to carry our
cross. One of the values of our God is that He is a
faithful God and He requires us to be faithful. How do
I know that?

Because He has called us to be stewards.

[1 Corinthians 4:2]
Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be
found faithful.

It is required in stewards to be faithful. That is
like the first commandment of stewardship. Who would
want to have a steward who is unfaithful?

Faithfulness is a commitment. It is us telling God
that in spite of the challenges in our lives, in spite
of people whom we may not like serving together with
us in the ministry, or in spite of all our other
varied excuses, we will be faithful to do what He has
called us to do.

Faithfulness is like us telling God "Here am I, send
me!" [Isaiah 6:8] and meaning it.

Our character is not in our talents but in our
