The Word Gives You Stability .
Monday, April 18th .
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58).
Too many people are tossed back and forth in life; they're as unstable as water. That's not God's desire for you. He wants you steadfast, stable, consistent, always abounding in the work of the Lord. He wants you firm and stable in your faith. And the Word of God is what brings that balance and stability into your life.
To become a stable person, you have to become stable in the Word. Some people are easily moved and dissuaded from the faith by what they see and hear; they run their lives on the basis of their emotions and experiences. Every little thing shakes their faith. Never find yourself in that class.
Believe with all your heart that the Scriptures will give you light, and direction, and that it holds the solution to every problem. Therefore, irrespective of the troubles, adversities and challenges, remain steadfast. Be unshakable. Trust the Word. Put your faith in it; believe it; be firm with the message of the Gospel. Become so inundated with the Word until the Word alone is all you think, talk and live out.
Serving Christ isn't in vain. God isn't unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love (Hebrews 6:10). The Bible says, "Be ye also patient; STABLISH your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh" (James 5:8). This is one of the reasons we minister and bring the Word to you every day. It's so that your faith can increase, and be established upon the truth, until you become perfect, unshaken, and complete, such that no matter what happens, you're courageous, vibrant and fervent for the Lord.
Dear Father, your Word gives me strength and ministers courage to my spirit. I'm steadfast, vibrant and fervent in spirit, today and always, irrespective of the tests, trials, and persecutions that may come my way! My faith is strong and active, and prevails over circumstances, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
|| 2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. ||
|| Isaiah 33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure. ||
|| Luke 6:47-49 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great. ||
