The definition of faithful means true, devoted and loyal. When we think of the terms of cheating, we automatically think about someone who’s not playing fair or someone who is dishonest. When someone is in a relationship and an individual decides to step outside of their commitment by cheating with another person, that individual was not loyal. If married, the individual has committed infidelity.
Think about your relationship with God. Have you been faithful and loyal to him? Our relationship with God is like a marriage and we must honor his vows by following his commandments, statues and law, even when we feel that we are unable to at times (due to our flesh). He will teach you to not follow your flesh.
How can we cheat on God? by committing our time to something or someone else. A relationship not only takes commitment, but time. We can also have false Gods or unknown idols in our life. We can also just simply not obey him. If we do not put him first and love him with all our heart, mind, body and soul, then we are spiritually cheating.
If you are faithful over the small things, then he will reward you to handle the big things. Every big step begins with something small, so it is important on how we deal with the little responsibilities in life. The eyes of the LORD are in every place, so it is vital to be faithful to the LORD even behind close doors. He has said in Matthew 6:18: “Pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly”.
What you do in secret matters and will determine how far you can go publicly. Water your relationship with God. Put him first above all things, spend more quality time with him and seek his face. Truly love him and he will take you places in where you only imagine. There is no limits to God. Don’t become a spiritual cheater. He is more than worthy.
