GOD’s faithfulness is seen throughout the Holy Bible for those who put their trust in Him. The faithfulness of GOD is usually connected to the steadfast love that He has for us even when we sin or when we make decisions that are not faithful to GOD. However, when we choose to embrace His commandments and His faith, we are able to be connected with the steadfast love of the LORD which is infinite.
