So a few days ago, I promised to share my 2023 Word of the Year. And here it is…FAITHFUL.
So let me tell you how I “found” this word. One of my FB friends posted about how difficult 2020, 2021, and 2022 have been. My comment to her was that these past few years made me very appreciative of biblical Jews as they struggled through very difficult circumstances for hundreds of years and yet they never lost their belief that God is FAITHFUL.
I thought about how the Jewish people remained faithful during those 400 long years when they heard nothing from God. There were no prophets to bring them God’s Word, but they remained faithful that God was faithful.
So FAITHFUL is my Word of the Year.
I want to focus on the fact that God is faithful even when life is difficult, even when life doesn’t go the way we want, even when we can’t feel Him.
Here’s a few verses that I came across about God’s faithfulness.
Deuteronomy 7: 9
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.
Hebrews 10: 23
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
What beautiful verses!
Happy New Year! May God bless you in the coming year.
