The dictionary uses some really cool words to define it, words like loyal, constant and steadfast. On the other hand, there are words like traitorous and unreliable used as antonyms for this word. So, as I was reading this morning, I came across this 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 commands. Deuteronomy 7:9
Without much thought, this phrase came to mind as I thought about that word--"without a doubt." That's what I think of when it comes to God. When it comes to his end of the deal, you can move forward "without a doubt." You can trust that he will always keep his end of the bargain. And you can underline, boldface, italicize and highlight that word. He will, without a doubt, do his part.
But what about me? I'd like to believe that I'm like the truck in the song. I'd like to know that God sees me as one of the reliable ones...kind of like Job or David. And ultimately, that's my choice. No one else "makes" me faithful. No one else chooses for me. It comes down to my willingness to be what God has asked me to be. For me? Without a doubt, I want to be found faithful.
