covenant faithfulness

semper fidelis – always faithful

We have journeyed together the last few posts as I sought to articulate my personal values. Today I articulate my last value.

Semper Fidelis – I am always faithful to God. I am faithful to my wife, others and my calling.

Our God is a faithful God. He is a covenant keeping God and remains true to His Word, His promise and His people. Over the years He has shown Himself faithful and true to His promises and His Word to me.

I have passed through the fire and sometimes through the hot burning deserts of life, but through it all He has been faithful. I have passed through mountain top thrilling experiences as He showed Himself faithful even in good times. I can testify that He is faithful both in good and bad times. The good times have been a result of His faithfulness to bless me. The bad times have been testimony of His faithfulness to sustain me in challenging times.

I can say without fear of contradiction that my God is semper fidelis. Always faithful!

Since I have been a beneficiary of His faithfulness and am in covenant with Him, I swear my oath of allegiance to Him as well. I will be semper fidelis to my God. Always faithful.

Though I may stumble yet I will rise up and pursue Him. Always faithful. My prayer and my desire is that I remain faithful so that on the last day I can hear those sweet words, ‘Well done good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Master.”

I am a partaker of His divine nature. I will be semper fidelis to my wife, my call and to others. I fully plan to be found faithful in accomplishing my calling and realizing my potential in the pursuit of the assignment of God in my life.

I commit 100% to covenant faithfulness to Christ and to Audrey. In this commitment I will uphold and adhere to the “no exceptions” rule.

Whether people applaud or critique, my aim is to be found always faithful to the One who called me. So help me God.

I learned the hard way that if I allow an exception in exceptional circumstances it is much easier next time to break the commitment again. Semper Fidelis.

May those who transact with me in this life find me faithful.  May I be a faithful ambassador of my King in my relationships with Him, with my wife, with others and in pursuit of my life assignment. So help me God!

Semper Fidelis. Always Faithful.
