He's More Faithful Than The Rising Sun
God is faithful.
Some of you may need to be reminded of that today. Be encouraged because His words says; “know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generation.”
God has a plan for your life. When you seek Jesus with everything you are, He will direct the steps you are taking. Even when it looks uncertain or looks like things aren’t working out in your favor, ask Him to give you the strength to trust in Him. Romans 8:28 says; And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
Our hearts must be postured in such a way where we are open to whatever the Lord wants to do in us and through us. Too often we come to God with our own agenda, and He sits back waiting for us to let it all go to Him. If we would repent of our own ways and seek His face, He promises to hear our prayers and answer them according to His will.
1 Peter 3:12 says; “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
The word “righteous” in the Greek means equitable. Some synonyms for equitable are unbiased or open-minded.
When you come to the Lord with your prayers, are you open-minded with your desires and prayers? Or do you come to Him with how YOU think your life should go, without any regard to how He might want to work in and through you? If we’re not open-minded towards the Lord and His plans for us, we are prideful. And His words says; “God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5
If you are humble before the Lord, He will be attentive to your prayers.
Let’s be a people who seek His face, His ways, and His truth. We cannot accomplish anything for eternity apart from these ways.
