This is where we meditate and draw strength from listening to God’s word. It is based on Psalm 1: 1 – 3 :
1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.
Think about that for a moment… Everything you need is right here
So take a deep breath, release it… and with that, all your anxieties and stress go away. You won’t be dry, you won’t be withered, but you will be full of life. Everything you do will prosper because you are planting yourself near the streams of water.
Today’s Meditation: Be Faithful
The word faithful is an adjective, and it means being loyal, constant, and steadfast. Think about that for a moment. Loyal, constant, and steadfast. To be steadfast means to be unwavering.
Similar to words faithful are: true, truehearted, devoted, dependable, firm, stable, steady, unfailing, and dedicated. Think for a moment, how can we be all these things?
Proverbs 28:20 says, “A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who makes haste to be rich will not go unpunished.”
Meditate on that for a moment…
At all levels in society, not being faithful has destroyed relationships, families, and business because someone wasn’t faithful to do their job. The benefits of faithfulness are abundant life. Think for a moment: what type of life do you want to live?
If we are live a life filled with love, joy, peace, and abundance, we have to be faithful to God first and take care of the little things well.
Jesus said in Luke 16:10-12 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?”
With that said, how are you handling your finances? How are you handling the people under your care? How are you taking care of your own body? Some of these things may seem little but, but it’s the little things that make the biggest differences. Just like a little rudder gives direction to the whole ship so the little things in your life will give direction to your final destination.
God sees your faithfulness and will reward you for it. God will give you rewards that no man can give, and no man can take away. But you have to make your mind up to follow Christ with your whole heart.
2 Chronicles 16:9 “ For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. What are some things that keep you from being faithful to God? Let’s pray and ask God to help us remove them.
Dear heavenly Father, you are perfect in all your ways. You are above everything we could imagine. We look to you for our answers. Right now we confess that we need you, and we thank you that Jesus has bridged the gap for us to talk with you. Right now we ask you to remove any idols and false gods that may be blocking us from being faithful to you. We know that you strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to you, and we ask that our hearts be in that position in order to receive the strength you have promise. Amen.
