Resolution for Women – Faithfully His, a resolution to be devoted to Christ and defined by His Word
This section was full of rich truths and I have little to add, except to say that these words were a help to my soul and reaffirming its focus to pursue holiness above happiness and to remember that when everything falls apart God is faithful. The question then remains, are we faithful to Him?
I hope the following excerpts of this section is an encouragement to you.
“Our goal should be to take responsibility for our actions, lining them up singularly with our God and His Word, diving deep into the divine purposes for which we have been placed on earth.” -Priscilla Shirer, Resolution for Women
“The best way to begin is by being faithful to what He has set before you right now. Sense the stirring in your soul as God’s Spirit quickens you to see what He’s called you to do today. Then pursue it at the expense of all else. Unashamedly.
“Hopefully you’re a person of faith. But heaven is calling you to be a person of faithfulness as well. When you’re at your job. When you’re hanging out with your friends. When you’re struggling financially. When you’re faced with a tough decision. When you’re doing your daily life and wish you were doing somebody else’s. By resolving to be faithfully His, you are deciding to allow everything you believe about God and His Word to consistently guide your feet, your hands, your mind, your heart–despite anything and everything that may point to the contrary.”
“Your ability to remain steadfast in your pursuit of the “faithful” label will germinate from the encouragement you receive through (the Bible’s) precepts. Since faithfulness is a fruit of God’s Spirit (Galatians 5:22), you can be certain that His Spirit within you will work in tandem with the edification process you receive from remaining consistent in His Word, helping you press on toward the goal–“the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14).
“In a world inundated with ideas to the contrary, it is your consistent reminder of who you really are, why you’re really here, and who you really belong to.”
- How will you be required to go against rationale or cultural pressure to stay committed to what heaven is calling you to do in this season of your life?
- In your own words describe the difference between having faith and being faithful.
- Would you describe yourself as a faithful person? If so, in what areas of life?
