Thanksgiving Challenge, Day 21

Day #21: I'm thankful that God is faithful when I am not.

"If we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself" (2 Timothy 2:13).

I'm so glad God's lovingkindness toward me is not dependent on my actions. I used to think that I needed to complete a whole checklist of good things to please God so he would love me. But I could never do enough. I felt guilty all the time. Then I came to realize that God's favor toward me was not based on what I did, but what Christ had already done. And no matter how much I fail God, he will never fail me. I can rest in his faithfulness.
