“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper” Psalms 1:2-3, NKJV.
The Fall season is beautiful in nature. The leaves turn brown and fall off the trees, and we marvel at it’s beauty. However, in a spiritual sense, it is not so beautiful. From God’s view, it’s not such a beautiful sight when He sees the heart of His people changing as conditions change. He sees their faith drying up. He sees that they are falling away. God wants His people to have faith that remains alive and vibrant no matter the outwork conditions.
Seasons may change, people may change, opinions may change, but God never changes, and He doesn’t want our faith to change either. He wants us to continue to go from faith to faith and from glory to glory, and the only way that will happen is if we meditate on God‘s WORD so that He can minister to our faith.
The Bible says every Scripture is God-breathed and when we receive God‘s WORD into our hearts, He ministers life and vibrancy to our faith. On the other hand, every lie from the enemy that we receive as truth causes us to wither, dry up and eventually fall away. This is because every lie from the enemy drains the very life out of you and robs you of your joy and hope in God.
Let God’s WORD minister life to your faith so that your hope and your confidence in the LORD will remain no matter the outward conditions or the changing seasons.
Prayer: Thank you LORD for your Truth that ministers to me. I open my heart to you and I receive your WORD of life. I reject every lie from the enemy and I receive the truth of your WORD. No matter what’s going on around me, let my faith and confidence continue to remain strong because I’m meditating on your WORD. In Jesus name, Amen.
