Today’s 333 Devotional: “Actions Speak Louder”
Moses failed to follow God’s instructions to speak to the Rock so the Lord could bring out life-giving water for the people. Instead, Moses struck the Rock with his rod (Numbers 20:11).
It’s not only in what we say that we’ll be held accountable to God, but also, it’s about how we react to situations happening around us. Those who have their actions under God’s control don’t allow the situation to control their behavior, and they don’t allow the actions of others to dictate how they react.
It’s called having a biblical worldview. It’s where we react to what’s going on in our world based upon what God’s word says. Unfortunately, most believers tend to rely upon a cultural filter rather than a biblical filter for interpreting daily events, information, experiences, and opportunities.
Today it’s not that easy to differentiate Christians from the rest of the world.
To counter this scenario, we need to strengthen our spiritual muscles through prayer and the study of God’s word. And then we must put what we believe into action.
However, when we don’t act upon what we believe then we pretty much can depend on the outcome described by Solomon.
“Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls.” (Proverbs 25:28)
A city with its walls broken down is a city that is defenseless. This happens when we don’t have rule over our spirit. What happens is that we allow the enemy to march right on in, and that’s exactly what has happened in the church today as a mixture of new age thought and cultic beliefs are presented side by side with the basics of the Christian faith, and as a result, our faith is weakened.
However, when God has control over our lives, we can expect another outcome.
“He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.” (Proverbs 16:32)
