Located in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Old Faithful is the most famous geyser in the world. Like other geysers, it erupts when the base of a column of water resting in the earth is vaporized by hot volcanic rock.

This geyser gained fame in part because of its consistency. It erupts on the average of every 75 minutes for up to 5 minutes, shooting a column of steam and hot water as high as 170 feet.

This consistency is a perfect picture of the kind of faithfulness God desires in our lives. He wants us to be so consistent that others literally can “set their clocks” by our lives. They know how we will act. They know the fruit of our character. We also can be sure that they continue to watch to see if we have any inconsistencies or mistakes.

The Bible also says that we need to be faithful because we will be tested and face problems. At times like these, some people yield to fear and worry. Others allow doubt to fill their lives and start giving in to compromise. But God promises great rewards for those who remain faithful. They will receive “the crown of life.”

Ask God to help you be faithful today. Seek to be faithful even when you are tested and face unfavorable circumstances. Ask Him to allow His power to flow through your life in mighty torrents.
