What a blessing to write you again, our dear partners! Recently, I came across a phrase in an article that really stirred my heart. The article was about living in supernatural blessing and victory in this life. The phrase that impacted my thoughts and heart was, "In consistency lies the power".
Consistency is certainly not something that comes naturally to our human nature. Due to us being sensitive to the circumstances that surround us, our emotions are more often than not influenced by them. One day, things will be going well for us and we feel great! Yet, the very next day, our circumstances may change and our emotions follow suit! Up one day and down the next....
Did you know that the most consistent truth we will ever have in this life is the Word of God! It is stable and sure and an anchor for our very souls! We also know that Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God, He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
This means, if we are looking for consistent victory in our lives, we will need to keep our thoughts and emotions focused on the truth of the Word and not on our circumstances which are forever changing!
Jesus said, in John 8:31-32:
"... If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples. And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free."
That word abide means to continue or be consistent. So, when we continue to keep our minds and hearts consistently fixed on the Word of God, and do what His Word says to do, we will know the truth.
That word know, in John 8:31, means to personally or intimately experience something. In this case, Jesus said the result of us consistently focusing our thoughts and emotions on His Word and doing what it says to do, will result in us intimately experiencing the reality of that Word in our lives. For example, we could find ourselves facing a particular circumstance that causes our minds and emotions to be concerned over our finances. If we are knowledgeable and willing to obey the financial principles found in God's Word, our hearts and minds can be at peace because God will always honour His Word. God's Word instructs us to not get into any debt that we don't have a clear plan to get out of. It also instructs us to bring our tithes and offerings to our local storehouse (church), with a cheerful, faith filled attitude. In doing this, we will experience the reality of His provision.
Knowing the truth of God's provision in our lives, sets our minds, hearts and emotions free from any worry or fear concerning our financial well-being.
This principle works in every area of our lives. Supernatural blessing and victory in our lives can most certainly be a constant reality when we consistently keep our lives aligned to the truth of God's Word.
May the months ahead be filled with this glorious promise as you choose to walk in the light of God's consistent blessing and grace.
We love and appreciate you all.
Yours in Christ
