Psalm 143:8 (NIV)
8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.
Other versions state faithfulness in the place of unfailing love.
Which way are we looking at? There are several ways in our lives that we need to trust and acknowledge God’s faithfulness.
But how can the morning bring word of God’s faithfulness if we have not acknowledged God’s hands as per Proverbs 3:6?
Fact, you woke up this morning. Whether in a good or bad mood, you woke up. Wear your mood and feelings on your sleeve and pray Scripture because experience has given me a testimony true to what is written in Scripture i.e. what God says He must fulfil.
Ask God for His faithfulness in all areas of your life.
- Your finances
- Your business/es
- Your office
- Your colleagues
- Favour with your boss &/or business partners
- Your plans
- Your children & the plans you have over their lives.
- Your enemies
- Your safety
- Your friends
- Your spouse
- Your church
- Your elevation/growth
- Your future plans
- Your health
- Your nation
- Opportunities – lost &/or prospective ones
- Your desires/dreams
- Your day’s activities
- Your family – nuclear or extended
- Your spiritual growth
- Your assignment on earth
- Your projects
The ways in your life, rather, the areas in your life are endless where we are required to put our trust in God.
What’s stopping you from asking Him to show His faithfulness?
- I will never leave you nor forsake you.
- Ask, seek, knock.
- My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory.
- Ask me of the nations…..
- He will give His angels charge over me…..
So, what is stopping you from asking God to send word of His faithfulness to you?
- ‘Sin’ according to the standard of men
You know all the above are considered sin in God’s eyes and no one is above it. However, part of God’s faithfulness is that He forgives us all our iniquities and wipes away our transgressions i.e. He will handle all the sins that we commit against Him, His laws and His temple (our bodies).
So, let’s get off our high horses and ask God to show His faithfulness in all areas of our lives in detail because even our flesh fails us.
Question. What if God takes me in a different direction than what I want?
Answer. He promises bigger & better by His standards. Not our standard. Also, He knows the end from the start. Fact is God exists and you ain’t Him.
