HIGHER EVERYDAY DAILY DEVOTIONAL
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 19, 2021
TOPIC: GOD FAVOURS THE FAITHFUL
TEXT: PSALM 101:1-7
MEMORY VERSE: “Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me” (PSALM 101:6).
Faithfulness is an attribute of God, which is expected to be manifested by His children. Faithfulness is the quality of being loyal, firm and resolute with a person, group, cause or belief without wavering. It means to be constant, consistent and committed to one's duties and obligations without compromise. God indeed favours His faithful children. Ruth was faithful to Naomi and her God, and was favoured to bear a son through whom Jesus came. If you walk in the way of God, fulfilling your duty to Him and humanity, truly, you will find favour. You do not work for favour, but you should live a life that attracts it. The Bible says, "A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD..." (Proverbs 12:2). God made Joseph to gain the favour of the keeper of the prison (Genesis 39:21). Samuel had favour with God and men; and so did our Lord, Jesus Christ (1 Samuel 2:26; Luke 2:52). Indeed, God favours the faithful (Matthew 25:19-23). He will answer their prayers and they shall inherit eternal life and serve Him forever.
QUOTE: He will answer their prayers.
CHALLENGE: The unfaithful are not God’s children.
PRAYER: Lord, empower me to serve You faithfully to the end.
