Faithfulness Wk3

Faithfulness

Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.

PSALM 36:5 (ESV)

God is faithful not out of obligation, but out of love. God was faithful to warn Elisha when the Arameans were waiting to ambush him. God was also faithful to reveal to Elisha and his servant horses and chariots of fire in numbers greater than that of the Arameans. Watch the video below to learn more of God’s faithfulness!

 

Memory Verse:

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.

DEUTERONOMY 7:9
