“A faithful man shall abound with blessings; but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.”
The scripture says a faithful man shall abound in blessings. Faithful to what? Faithful to the word of God. A person that is faithful to the word shall abound with blessings.
Our faithfulness to service will get us rewards but only the word of God can release the Blessings of God in our lives. To be faithful to something is to stay with it until the end to go all the way and not give up regardless of any and all adverse situations or circumstance.
Joshua 1:8 says, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” God was telling Joshua to be faithful to the word because it was the word that would bring him good success. And Jesus said in Matthew 13:23, “but he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” To get an understand of the word takes meditating upon it, holding it in, turning it over and over, not letting it go regardless of any and all adverse situations or circumstances. It’s that kind of faithfulness to the word that causes a person to abound in blessings. Trying to lay hold on the Blessing any other way will only result in your losing what you thought you had to begin with. Matthew 13:12, “for whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance; but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”
Sure it may take a little longer to finish when you slowly digest your food, but it also takes less to fill you up. What am I saying? I’m saying that if you are faithful with just one word from God that one word will produce a harvest in your life that is exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or think (Eph 3:20). You can be faithful to the word of God because God is faithful to His word.
