Faithfulness Like a Diamond

faithfulnessMeet Abigail (1Samuel 25:1-42). There was little cause for happiness in the soil of Abigail’s life. Her marriage appears to have been loveless and childless. Her husband was a fool, “harsh and evil in his doings,” “a scoundrel,” and a drunk. Yet we cannot miss Abigail’s loyalty, trustworthiness, steadfastness, and reliability. All these were evidenced in her faithfulness to God’s Word and to the people in her life.

When her husband foolishly refused to be kind to the powerful warrior David, Abigail quickly acted. She acted with wisdom to appease the angry warrior and save the lives of her husband, her servants, and herself. The flashing diamond of Abigail’s faithfulness glistened. Even in her problem-ridden situation, she was faithful to her husband. She remained loyal to her household, to her work in the home, and to God.

Does your life seem to be buried beneath generous layers of dust and dirt? Let your faith in God—regardless of your circumstances—shine brightly as you remain “faithful in all things” (1 Timothy 3:11). Never underestimate the brilliance and beauty of faithfulness in the eyes of God. After all, He is more concerned about you being faithful to His standards than He is about you being successful in the eyes of the world.

Start or end your day with powerful reminders of God’s work in the lives of women in the Bible and find encouragement for your own faith journey in Elizabeth George’s book, One Minute With The Women Of The Bible.

Power in Prayer

There are few things that can change a marriage the way prayer can. While I was an associate pastor, a couple came to my office for marriage counseling. After we pinpointed several areas of concern in their marriage that needed their attention, I asked the husband to commit the couple’s desires to the Lord. As the man finished praying, I looked up to discover that his wife was crying. She explained through her tears that this was the first time in ten years of marriage that they had prayed together as a couple!

The Savior of the world certainly came to earth in an unexpected way. He came as a servant of God to sacrifice himself for us. It wasn’t immediately apparent to others that Jesus was the Messiah, the King, they were waiting for.
