Happy Wednesday, everyone!
The Lord is trustworthy in all He promises and faithful in all He does. (Psalm 145:13 NIV)
Our God is so faithful! His Word always comes to pass, and He always keeps His promises. It is this foundational truth that gives us the courage to trust in Jesus for our salvation. It is this same truth that helps us continue to trust in Him as we live our lives in this world...not to just be satisfied with salvation, but to continue to build on that foundation the life of a faithful disciple. We can trust God to do what He says (Ezekiel 24:14), to give what He has promised (Numbers 23;19), to provide all that we need (Matt. 6:33), and to bring about the supernatural results of His plan and purpose in each of our lives (Phil. 1:6). When Jesus came into the world, He came as the Truth (capital “T”) – the fulfillment of all of God’s promises.
When we worship together, when we sing about God’s promises and His faithfulness, we lift up the Truth. And Truth has power! Repeating to ourselves and to others the Truth (think putting your favorite worship song on replay) gives the Holy Spirit another opportunity to work in our lives - to weave the Truth into the very fabric of our lives. This is the best kind of meditation, and it is a crucial life skill for a disciple. We cannot think about two things at the once, to dwell on Truth and simultaneously think negative or discouraging thoughts. The more time we spend meditating on God’s promises and His faithfulness, the less time we will spend thinking about things that are damaging to our lives and our testimonies
as disciples of Jesus.
I hope you’ll think on these things this week, as you listen to and learn the songs we’ll be singing together on Sunday.
See you then!
