Internalizing His Principles

The way to fellowship with God as explained in Psalm 15, is to do the following:

Speak the truth
Be righteous
Treat others right
Keep promises
Give to the needy
Be a person of integrity.

The above qualities are from God and we apply our faith by planting the seeds of His principles into our heart. If there are areas that need improvement, memorize scripture to help. When challenged, the mind will be prepared for action because God’s principles are internalized.

As God’s Word is internalized, the heart of a champion is developed which produces the fruits of the Spirit. God is then with us to take on the challenges we face and with God, we can sincerely believe that each obstacle can be overcome and enthusiastically act upon each task until completion; celebrating progress throughout each day by praising Him.

Father God, we ask for help in following Your will. Help us to make a comeback if faced with setbacks. Help us to keep at it by setting our eyes on the reward. Because of Jesus in our heart, we can fellowship with You throughout our day as we work to continuously develop the heart of a champion. We believe the breaks will start going our way as we build momentum throughout each hour of this day. We will use the weapon of Your Word to overcome the enemy and produce the fruits of the Spirit. Amen.
