Faithful Again

Word on black buttonWhen I think about my faithfulness – I feel pretty good about it. If I look below the surface I see how unfaithful I am to the Lord’s call upon my life. He calls me to consult Him in everything. He calls me to trust Him in everything and with everything. I still go my own way often. I still don’t let Him have everything. My faithfulness calls for complete trust.  He has all the resources He needs to take care of my situation and me. He calls me to help Him serve others. I simply need to be faithful again and again to His call upon my life.  Check this out…

1“Come, let’s go back to the Lord.
    He has hurt us, but he will heal us.
    He has wounded us,
 but he will bandage our wounds.
In two days he will put new life in us;
    on the third day he will raise us up

    so that we may live in his presence
 3 and know him.

Let’s try to learn about the Lord;
    he will come to us as surely as the dawn comes.
He will come to us like rain,
    like the spring rain that waters the ground.”
The Lord says, “Israel, what should I do with you?
    Judah, what should I do with you?

Your faithfulness is like a morning mist,
    like the dew that goes away early in the day.
I have warned you by my prophets
    that I will kill you and destroy you.
    My justice comes out like bright light.
I want faithful love
    more than I want animal sacrifices.

I want people to know me
    more than I want burnt offerings.
But they have broken the agreement as Adam did;
    they have been unfaithful to me. (Hosea 1:1-7 NCV)

The Lord wants my faithful love, honor, respect and obedience more than He wants anything. I must listen and learn what He’s asking me to do next. I should not think that my talent or giftedness will replace my being faithful to Him. He wants that most of all. If I’m faithful to Him – everything else that matters will follow.

Pressing On!
