"He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it." I Thessalonians 5:24 NKJV
A person is either faithful or not; it's a character trait, the quality of a person's nature; you can't be faithful today and unfaithful tomorrow; nothing like "partly faithful", no; faithfulness is about being consistent, loyal, trustworthy, reliable, stable and dependable. In any situation, a faithful person remains faithful.
God is faithful! According to Merriam Webster's dictionary, someone who is faithful deserves trust: God deserves trust! Hallelujah! He keeps all His promises and He does whatever He is supposed to do. The Psalmist said, "I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread." Why? Because God is faithful! God is so faithful, He never slumbers or sleeps!
Lamentations 3:22 says, "The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning." God is faithful every day! I can't even imagine what would happen any day God is unfaithful, assuming it's even possible: the sun would not shine; there would be no air to breathe; and the devil would just destroy everything in a matter of seconds! But God is faithful!!! And He will always be! Hallelujah!
