Psalm 50:5, “Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”
Don’t underestimate the impact your faithfulness has, not only on those around you but to God! Your faithfulness through the storms and struggles in your life is a bright spot in His day! When you take the time to praise Him in the heat of the battle, it puts a smile on His face to see your faithfulness and His heart is moved! He loves you!
It says in 1 Corinthians 4:2, “Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful.” Yes, God requires that we are faithful, but that doesn’t mean that we always are. He knows that your faithfulness will not only encourage others, and be His joy, but it will encourage you!
When we are faithful to all that God says and we draw close to Him regardless of what else is going on around us it positions us for His comfort and blessing. When we honor Him with our sacrifice of praise in the middle of the storm, it moves Him! There isn’t a tear you have cried that has escaped His notice! He cares and He is moving on your behalf! God loves you and just like you love to be loved, so does He! He wants to see your love and feel your love and He wants you to draw close to Him.
Yes, we are called to be faithful, but that calling is for our good. Just like any good parent sets boundaries for their children to keep them safe, God sets boundaries for us and requires things of us for our good! Being faithful to God should not seem like a chore, it should rather be seen as the blessing of His leading and guiding us into all He has for us and all He created us to be. So, stick close to Him and remain faithful knowing that His best is yet to come!
