Humility before God is essential because it demonstrates dependence upon God and acknowledges His sovereignty over every detail of life.
With God’s help, your faith can be, “like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.”
We don’t normally think of the Scots in terms of those who rescued Jewish people from the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust. We’re more familiar with Corrie Ten Boom born in the Netherlands and the German Lutheran pastor, Dietrich Bonheoffer. But, when the name, Jane Haining, from Dunscore, Dumfriesshire in Scotland recently came to my attention, I determined to know more about her courageous selfless life.
God sees all! With His searching and piercing gaze, God scrutinizes the actions of men.
The apostle Paul informs us that the life of faith is not theoretical, but intensely practical—people of faith have purpose!
As he wrote this psalm, David’s life was focused on the Word of God. The godly principles he internalized not only provided guidance during waking hours, but also came to mind and actually instructed him between sleep cycles when he awakened at night.
People of faith make God’s Word part of their thought process 24/7, integrate it into their very being and share it with those around them.
When God burdens your heart for a specific job, success is assured when you prepare for action by going to Him in prayer and allowing Him time to arrange the details.
Stirred to the core by the needs of others, people of faith act with determination to provide hope.
