can just see and imagine the reactions, of some, to the above title “Meticulous Infidelity!” Well, let’s unpack the title shall we. The word meticulous carries the meaning of “making sure of avoiding potential danger, mishap or harm: cautious and careful.” Infidelity carries the definition of “The action or state of being unfaithful to a spouse…. unfaithfulness” Therefore, by way of extrapolation—or keeping things simple—our title is dealing with being cautious to be faithful.
Lets look at it all in another light—namely the word of God! Matthew 6:25 speaks to the matter as follows. “Take no though for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body what you shall put on.”
Jesus sums up common-sense carefulness in a disciple as infidelity. Does a husband at any time come to his bride with the question, “How much unfaithfulness can I get by with before you wish divorce?” And your response is and should be, “That’s ridiculous!” The same is true in the spirit realm. IF we have received the Spirit of God, HE will press through and say—Now WHERE does God fit in this relationship? Its not until we learn to make HIM our first consideration. Whenever we put other things first, there is confusion. That’s the very definition of Lordship. If Jesus isn’t Lord of all—meaning He is first before all—then He isn’t Lord at all!! Let’s take another look at Matthew 6:25 again.
“Take no thought…” DON’T take the pressure of forethought upon yourself. It is not only wrong to worry, it is infidelity, because worrying means that we do not think that GOD can look after the practical details of our lives, and it is never anything else that worries us. Have you ever noticed what Jesus said would choke the word He puts in? The devil? No! It’s the cares of this world. It is the little worries always.
I will not trust where I cannot see, that is where infidelity begins.
The only cure for infidelity is OBEDIENCE to the Spirit.
The great word of Jesus to His disciple is ABANDON!
