Numbers 12:7 Can God Call You Faithful?

But this is not true of my servant Moses; he is faithful in all my house. Numbers 12:7

People will always have some type of description for those that they know. Where it becomes important is when it is leaders or bosses giving the description.

These descriptions of a person are given by what is seen and heard on a regular basis. Perceived character is what is told about a person, how well a person works, how true is his word, how loyal is he, and how faithful is he. Often only a few people will score high on character.

After Miriam complained about Moses, God told them that Moses is faithful in His house, unlike many prophets.

Being found faithful is one of the greatest attributes that God can speak of a person. In order to be faithful, one must completely trust in God and obey His every command without question or hesitation.

Faithfulness is one characteristic that many people are missing, not only with God, but even with each other. Many will cheat or lie in the workplace or in their life with others. Cutting corners or doing the very minimum to accomplish self-desire and please the leader occurs on a regular basis as acceptable.

Jesus later said that it would be good for one to have God say ‘well done, good and faithful servant’ when he gets to heaven. God has a plan for each and every believer, a work for them to do. As He gives out directions, God expects the believer to carry out His instructions fully with no complaining or hesitation.

Acting faithfully in this way shows God that one completely trusts in Him and truly loves Him. It is also knowing that God fully loves him with a perfect love and will never ask anything to be done that is not good.

Looking at your own life, how would God be able to describe you?

God has plans for you, things for you to do in His kingdom. Some of these things will be easy, some will be hard, but all need to be done. Trust God and do what He asks of you to be found faithful.

Will you be like the world and try to cut corners or complain and try to get out of doing what God has asked? Or will you be like Moses and be found faithful in all of God’s house?

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know all that God asks you to do; that you will be found faithful in God’s sight; that you will trust all that God tells you; and that God will use you to build His kingdom each day.

Philippians 3:19 Description Of The Enemy

Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. Philippians 3:19

The majority of the world live without God. They desire things for themselves with virtually no care or concerns for God or others.

On the outside surface the world appears to be doing well and making it. Everything appears to be going well and that they are successful. Evil men, and those with no regard for God, appear to be able to be in control and are winning the battles.

Paul just mentioned that many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Now he describes them has having a goal of destruction, their selves as god, filled with shame, and their mind only upon earthly things.

When Jesus died upon the cross, it was not for selfish reasons but for others. He set an example of how those who follow Him should live their lives. The majority of the world stands against the cross and Jesus, because both stand against selfishness.

The goal of many is selfishness, which will always lead to destruction of others in order to build one’s self up. They feed on what satisfies them physically, while rejecting their spiritual needs. What the world finds as great and good is actually very shameful. Everything about the world is focused upon earthly, temporary things that will die and fade away.

There are some in the church that are living in that same way as an enemy of Jesus and His church, the believer. They strive to tear down believers with false lies and deception, attempting to destroy what God is building.

The true believer will focus on Jesus, God the Father and heavenly things. He will build others up in Christ, refuse to live in sin, and pull others away from sin.

Each day you live, you have a choice as to how you live. You must choose where your focus is. There are two places to put your focus on: the temporary, earthly things or on the eternal things of God and heaven.

If you choose to look at things and live as the world does, you will be an enemy of the cross of Christ. Rather choose to live for God. Live to have eternal life and bring as many others as possible with you into that eternal life with God.

Do not be an enemy of the cross of Christ inside the church.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that your mind will be set upon the things of Christ; that your goal will be to serve God; that your glory will be found in Jesus; and that you will be His witness to all on this earth.
