  1. Thank you Aliza! The loss of my Dad-in-love last week is still very fresh. He lived a faithful life serving his wife, children, grandchildren & great-grandchildren & thru it all it was really faithfulness to his Savior & Lord, Jesus. It definitely wasn’t flashy or splashy or dazzling, no air fryer magic but over time we celebrate how spectacular his life’s steady faithfulness was. May we each be empowered by the Spirit to be faithful in each detail that God be glorified in our enduring faithfulness!

  2. Oh how this speaks to me in such a positive way. Also perfect timing. Thank you for sharing. By the way, I have a small mint green air fryer too. It’s fun, fast and efficient. I am glad my faithfulness is not like an air fryer.

    Thank you!

  3. Perfectly said and loved the way you compared faith to other things. It has been true with my faithfulness, that like you said, as I show faith and live with faithfulness it becomes more natural.
    Beautiful post!

  4. This was beautiful! I often pray asking the Lord to keep me faithful even though it is not shiny and exciting.

  5. So appreciated your statement, Aliza, about the purpose of practicing certain habits: to know Jesus more intimately, love him more intensely, and follow him more closely. Amen! But how easily I can get side-tracked into performance, away from the main objective. (A bit of spiritual warfare going on here and I’m not even aware?!) Thank you for refocusing my attention where it belongs.

  6. God’s faithfulness to us and our lifelong faith walk with Him, grow sweeter as the days go by as we trace the path of His faithfulness to us across the years and decades!

    I enjoyed this devotion about faith today, and learned about air fryers, I haven’t really been paying attention to this product!

  7. Great analogy Aliza. I really love your writing and enjoying the Bible Project App. I need to come up with some practices as I run back to Jesus- I do need him right now Xx

  8. Aliza,

    It takes any where from 18-254 days to form a new habit. On average 66 days for a new behavior to become automatic. We have to work at it one day at a time. Before long it will become as natural & routine as breathing. God understands our humanity & how easily we can become distracted. There is so much out there vying for our attention & time. If we carefully plan & work at it daily we can build faithfulness into a rhythm that becomes natural. For me that looks like listening to Christian music rather than other types, watching preachers, & getting into the word more. Here’s to cultivating new spiritual habits this year.

    Blessings 🙂
