Psalm 119:30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me.
No matter what you are facing today and no matter what is going on in your life you have the choice of whether or not you will remain faithful. Whether it is your relationship with God, your service, your job, your marriage, your friendships you have a choice of whether or not to be faithful.
There are times in marriages when maybe things aren’t going your way, maybe your spouse isn’t as romantic as you would like or maybe they are even borderline abusive you have a choice of whether or not you will remain faithful. Now, if you are in an abusive relationship get help and that may involve getting out, don’t continue in abuse, but don’t cheat either. Often when things aren’t going well in a marriage Satan will move stealthily in with someone who is so sweet and understanding and somehow has the ability to fill that “need” in your life – run! Don’t turn to someone else, turn to God!
Sometimes when we are facing struggles in life with our finances or just life in general we can get discouraged and begin to lose our hope and we find ourselves frustrated with God. Stop for a moment and remember that He is working for you behind the scenes and He hasn’t forgotten. Be careful to remain faithful in your attitudes and behavior, don’t give Satan an open door with his lies. Satan will work hardest to discourage you the most as he senses your answer is near. Hold onto your faith in God and trust Him to do what He said He would do.
According to this verse our faithfulness is our choice and in the Psalmist case, he chose to set God’s Word in front of him to remind him of what he needed to do and who God is. If you feel you are at the end of your rope and you are struggling in your faithfulness and hope then I would encourage you to spend more time with God reminding yourself of His love and His faithfulness to us! Hold on, stay faithful ~ the best is yet to come!
