Being dependable means being trustworthy and reliable. When someone calls on you, your word is solid and they know and trust that you mean what you say. This is an amazing Godly Strength! Praise the LORD for your faithfulness to your word, as He is faithful to His! Let’s look at what the Bible says about this unwavering reflection of God’s character in you.
As Believers, we know that God is a relational and personal God. He is faithful and dependable; therefore, we can trust His word. If you exhibit loyalty, trust, stability and truthfulness, all within dependability, your relationships flourish. Being dependable is possibly the most important character trait anyone could possess in a relationship.
Give praise to God for this gift, as it shows your faithfulness and love for God!
“But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.”—1 John 2:5
Dependability reflects our priorities. When we place God first, we see how much He loves us and others, and naturally we think of others before ourselves. Dependability and humility go hand in hand. Others will know that you are someone they can count on and trust. As a result, they will see God in you, and with that your faith matures.
God has a powerful word to say about dependability in relationships…
“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”—John 15:13
Jesus laid down His life for us, because He loved us, not because we deserved it. This is a picture of how He wants us to show love to each other. By this, the world will know that we belong to Him. When we love God He teaches us how to love others as He loves, by being dependable and faithful.
Pray to God right now, asking Him to show you areas in your life where you have not been dependable. Ask Him to use those moments to strengthen your faith and character of dependability. Ask Him to show you when you have shown dependability and give Him thanks.
