God is pleased when he finds faith and when we are steadily growing one day at a time. 1 Corinthians 15:58 says
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord. Because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Sometimes we may feel that we are not doing anything ,when those simple acts of kindness are a reflection of the ways of the Lord. Those simple kind words spoken or a card or call to a sick friend.
We are to stay grounded and steady in our faith and in the ways of the Lord. Are you growing each day in love, Joy , peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control? ( Galatians 5:22)
By reflecting on if we are exhibiting these attributes will show us if we are exhibiting the characteristics of Jesus and standing firm in our faith.
We are to stand firm in our faith and not waiver despite what’s going on around us. Do we all get it perfectly? Absolutely not but we are to move in that direction and when we miss it, shake it off and get up again and move forward!
God is so good he gives us second , third , fourth chances. He doesn’t give up on us. He is a God that is IMMOVABLE in how he loves us and wants the best for us.
Psalm 144Living Bible
144 Bless the Lord who is my IMMOVABLE Rock. He gives me strength and skill in battle. 2 He is always kind and loving to me; he is my fortress, my tower of strength and safety, my deliverer. He stands before me as a shield. He subdues my people under me.
1 Peter 5:9 (AMP)
Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset -- "rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same ( identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world.
Do not be moved by the things going around you for if you are IN CHRIST the things in this life are just temporary and remember your eternal home is with the Lord in heaven! Stay rooted and grounded IN HIM and your faith will no be moved!
2 Corinthians 4:18
while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Prayer: God forgive me when I am easily swayed by circumstances, situations in my life and I’m looking to you. Bring me back to you My Rock, My fortress my redeemer, and to stay steady as I place my trust in you alone. In Jesus name AMEN
