God You are faithful as the day is long...
There is no time when you are unfaithful.
You are faithful when I am faithless.
You are the giver of faith.
You open up the eyes of my heart to have faith
And in giving me that faith I receive an assurance of what I hope for.
My faith is useless if not backed up with obedience.
You call me to add to my faith:
goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love.
These are the fruits of the Spirit.
You are called the Author and Perfector of my faith.
By faith I know that I am justified, am being sanctified and will be glorified with Christ.
This may be what You mean by exercising our faith so that it might increase.
Your word says that if I have faith that moves mountains
but I lack the transformed heart and action of love, I AM NOTHING.
There is a righteousness that comes from faith it is close to me—on my lips and heart.
The conviction that comes from faith causes me to confess that: Jesus is Lord.
You are the faithful witness and Your name itself is: Faithful and True.
