“Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gifts as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.” – I Corinthians 1:7-9
All that we need to be found blameless before Him on the day we stand before His throne, has been granted to us through His Son. He has given each of us spiritual gifts and strength in Him to grow our faith, edify the body, and endure until we see Him face to face. God, who has called us each by name, is faithful to equip us individually, as we trust in Him.
The hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness” is flooding my heart and my head, as my spirit soars at the reminder of the depth of His love and faithfulness to me.
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou has been Thou forever wilt be.
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided –
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

If we abide in Him, we come to know His faithfulness, steadfastness, compassion, mercy, provision, love, and glorious grace. From us, He wants faithful fellowship. For us, He has salvation, spiritual gifts, strength, faithfulness and hope for the day we will join Him in heaven forever. May we continue to seek our Savior, as we have been found by Him, our forever faithful Father.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that in You, we lack nothing we need to stand strong until the day You summon us home. Forgive us for forgetting how truly faithful You are and for placing our trust anywhere outside of You. Teach us to trust in Your faithfulness that knows no end. Thank You that You call us and keep us. May our strength in You, and our spiritual gifts from You, speak volumes to those who need to hear. Use us as Your instruments so that we may be a sweet, sweet sound, in Your ear. Amen.
