Faith is believing without seeing. It is like the sun, that although absent from our vision at night, it always comes up each morning. God is as faithful and as powerful as the sun, penetrating the darkness in our lives.
Faithful is one who doesn't change. Hebrews 13:5 says He will not leave you or forsake you, let you down or relax His hold on you. He is faithful. He can't change, any more than the sun can stop shining and the earth can stop its rotation around the sun.
Faithfulness is a description of the character of faith that truly equates to love. "I will be faithful and true" is a promise that we make to our spouse when we marry - even on days when we don't like them very much. Faithfulness is God's very nature.
Unconditional love is faithful. It strengthens and protects, no matter what.
Lord, help me to love unconditionally and to be faithful to those around me, strengthening and protecting through what I say and do.
