Most of us understand at least a little bit of how an automobile engine functions. Pistons, fan belts, water pumps, and thousands of moving parts all whirl around within a small space, creating power. Each piece in the motor has a different part to play in helping the engine function. If one piece gets out of line, the engine malfunctions. At the same time, oil and coolant circulate to keep the engine running smoothly. The parts must all work together harmoniously.
That is the way God's attributes function too. If you took away love, God's character would not be complete. God's love works with all other attributes, like His justice, to produce the right kind of results. We can compare God's faithfulness to the oil in the engine that keeps the internal parts running smoothly. God's faithfulness means that each attribute in His character is working at full capacity at all times. Therefore, you can count on Him to keep His promises.
In fact, God's faithfulness is at the core of God's nature. He is always all-knowing, all-powerful, ever-present, holy, righteous, merciful, and loving because He is faithful to His own character. He never changes any of His attributes to accommodate someone else's wishes.
So when you get up in the morning and the sun is shining, thank God for His faithfulness. When you look outside and find it raining, thank God for His faithfulness in watering the earth. Truly, God's faithfulness is new every morning and refreshes us every night.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Today, rest in the certainty of God's great faithfulness to you if you are one of His children. No matter what happens, He will prove Himself faithful. Be at peace in response to His faithfulness.

Look at the beauty and intricacies in your corner of the Earth; marvel at the genius of the design. How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being.
Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
