Fruit of Faithfulness Series: Day 29
Wow only two days left, I can’t believe it! I am sure you all have some great plans for the weekend, so I am going to keep this brief!
Heads up, here is what the last two posts will be:
- review of the posts from this week (SUNDAY)
- overview of entire #write31days experience (what God taught me through this challenge) and next steps, what to expect after the challenge (MONDAY)
But for now, we are on the last scripture and daily challenge!
And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Revelation 21:5 (NASB)
Then the One seated on the throne said, “Look! I am making everything new.” He also said, “Write, because these words[a] are faithful and true.” Revelation 21:5 (HCSB)
5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true. Revelation 21:5 (NLT)
From these few verses you can see that the other word used in place of “faithful” is “trustworthy”.
Let’s back up to talk about what is going on in this book of Revelation
In Revelation, the apostle John writes of his vision for the future. Specially in chapter 21 he is talking about the vision of a new heaven and a new earth.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them.[a] 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” 5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6 And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. 7 All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children. Revelation 21:1-7
Let’s take the command to John to write down His truth and apply it to our lives.
Remember that notebook I suggested you keep during this #fruitoffaithfulness challenge?
Hopefully you still have your notebook because the challenge is to not only pray to God but write to God. How would your daily quiet time with God look different if you wrote Him a love letter?
I know many people keep a prayer journal, but this is slightly different. I am asking to write a letter to God that praises Him for His glory, love, grace, mercy and faithfulness.
Pour your heart out to God and he will pour into you.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:8
