~And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins~
What a beautiful day we awoke to at the Pacific Coast! There was not a trace of fog and
so we went for a walk on the beach early that September day. Warm sunshine enveloped us and
sparkled upon the bluest ocean as diamonds. The air was so fresh and seagulls were out,
while sandpipers danced before us in the sand. Oh, if I could stop that moment in time, a
perfect morning on the coast.
Suddenly, there appeared a rider on a beautiful black horse. The stallion was the
picture of strength and yet he was guided by the slightest movement of his reins. I walked
up and pet him asking the rider what breed He was. One-half Arabian and one-half Thoroughbred she informed me. With that she gently pulled on his reins and down the beach they went.
Godís soft voice then reminded me that God is guided by faithfulness in His dealings with
His people. ~And faithfulness (is) the girdle of his reins~. God is speaking to us through
this scripture and assuring us that He is faithful, faithful, faithful! He cannot be
otherwise. If He were unfaithful to us at any part of our journey with Him we would always
have doubts whether He would ultimately fail us.
Just as that beautiful black stallion was guided by the riderís reins, faithfulness
guides our Godís reins. He is using a word picture in our scripture as He wants to
re-assure us that He will never fail us. We may rest assured that He will accomplish in and
through our lives His purpose for our lives and bring us through this life guided by the reins His faithfulness.
~ And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called
Faithful and True. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS~
