The Power of Consistency

With conviction comes consistency. To be steadfast means that we determine to go forward without change or equivocation. There is no hesitation but a determination to do right.

I thank God for everyone who is steadfast. It blesses a pastor when he sees people remain steadfast as an army in the Finished Work. Steadfast people don't leave the devil much room to play with them.

Another thing conviction does is make us immovable. "I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved" (Psalm 16:8). Finances, health troubles, domestic problems-none of these things can move me because the Lord is before my face. Consider someone who is immovable because of conviction and conversion; one who has humility in agreeing with God no matter what is happening.

Those who are steadfast and immovable always abound in the work of the Lord. If I am abounding in the Lord's work, then I am occupied with Christ. When I am occupied with Christ, then I enter into faith-rest.

Resting in God's love by faith is the greatest manifestation of maturity we can ever have.
