Top 7 Bible Verses About God’s Steadfastness
Here are 7 Bible verses that will hopefully make you better understand God’s steadfastness.
A Definition of Steadfastness
We could define steadfastness as having a firm loyalty or constant and unswerving dedication to something or someone. It is fixed or unchanging and solidly established so steadfastness is immovable, irrefutable, unchangeable, unalterable, and is completely and utterly dependable.
That is a great definition for God as He says I am the Lord and I change not (Mal 3:6).
If you desire to know more about God’s steadfast nature, particularly His steadfast love, read the Psalms because the steadfastness of God is mentioned 132 times of the 219 times it is mentioned in the Bible and it is almost always associated with His steadfast love being joined together in almost every single one of them.
Psalm 25:10 “All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.”
Of the 219 times that the word steadfast appears it is followed by the word love in nearly 200 of those times in the Bible. That is one thing we know with 100% certainty about God; His love is steadfast, just as His faithfulness is. All the paths of the Lord are sure and dependable and His paths are as steadfast as God Himself is.
Hebrews 6:19-20 “We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
If there was anything we could say about God it is that He is steadfast and that He is the steadfast anchor of our soul. We have confidence to enter into the throne room of heaven because of our High Priest, Jesus Christ, Who abides there and intercedes for us every time we need Him.
Psalm 85:10 “Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.”
God is always faithful and His steadfast love is immutable and so we see where these two meet in Jesus Christ whose steadfast love and faithfulness were revealed at the cross and for us, it is where righteousness and peace meet with one another. We have His righteousness imputed toward us (2nd Cor 5:21) because He took on our sins and we have peace with God because of this (Rom 8:1) as the wrath of God has been removed from us.
First Thessalonians 1:2-3 “We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Here is another reference to an anchor of hope…it is “in our Lord Jesus Christ” for there is no other name that can save us (Acts 4:12) and that should compel us to be forever thankful to God.
Daniel 2:44 “And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever.”
This day is coming…the day when the kingdoms of this world become the kingdom of our God. This kingdom shall never be destroyed nor shall it ever end. It will remain steadfast for all time.
Second Thessalonians 3:5 “May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.”
We have no steadfastness outside of our faith in Christ. He is that Solid Rock upon which we stand and all other ground is sinking sand. The steadfastness that is found in Christ will allow us to stand on that day of judgment that is surely coming upon the whole world.
First Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
Here is one of the few Bible verses on steadfastness that we ourselves can be said to be steadfast and immovable but that is only because of our faith in Christ. Our faith is only as steadfast as the Object of our Faith and that is Jesus Christ; the immutable, immovable, and never-changing God.
If you have never repented and trusted in Christ then you are on shaky ground because you will stand before the Son of God and be judged for your sins and have to give an account for every idle word and ever deed done in this life (Rev 20:12-15). If you have trusted in Christ, then your sins were accounted for at Calvary and that enables you to stand fast before the Lord.

Bible Verses to Open your Prayer on Tithes and Offerings
And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!”
And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
Every tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the trees, is the Lord’s; it is holy to the Lord. If a man wishes to redeem some of his tithe, he shall add a fifth to it.
And every tithe of herds and flocks, every tenth animal of all that pass under the herdsman’s staff, shall be holy to the Lord.
One shall not differentiate between good or bad, neither shall he make a substitute for it; and if he does substitute for it, then both it and the substitute shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.”
But you shall seek the place that the Lord your God will choose all your tribes to put his name and make his habitation there. There you shall go, and there you shall bring your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and the contribution that you present, your vow offerings, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock.
2 CHRON. 31:4–5
And he commanded the people who lived in Jerusalem to give the portion due to the priests and the Levites, that they might give themselves to the Law of the Lord.
As soon as the command was spread abroad, the people of Israel gave in abundance the firstfruits of grain, wine, oil, honey, and of all the produce of the field.
And they brought in abundantly the tithe of everything.
And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny.
And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box.
For they all contributed their abundance, but she her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”
Here is a look at the truth about tithing according to the scripture Malachi 3:10. Presented by Grace Bible Church.
