Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58
Sometimes we become overwhelmed when there’s work to be done. But when we work for the Lord, it doesn't seem like a chore. We find fulfillment in knowing God is pleased when we serve Him. He fills us with a Spirit of content and provides the way for us to grow in His greatness.
God assigns tasks that fill us with passion as we’re guided by the goodness of His grace. When we use the gifts we’re given; He readies us for His will and helps us find reason to grow. He teaches to be patient while we WAIT and shows how to serve Him with a grateful heart. He blesses us in ways we never could have imagined and allows us to share His love.
God WILL bless our efforts. He WILL show us amazing things. He WILL reward our obedience. If we focus on the tasks He lays before us, He WILL work to change our lives. We WILL grow in the guiding of His love, if we give ourselves fully to His will. He WILL lead us where we find purpose in what He provides and we will NOT be consumed as He works in us.
God will prepare us for what’s to come. We must be ready when He tugs at our hearts. He will bring peace if we totally TRUST and BELIEVE He will make a difference in our lives. He will reveal His plans and we will discover joy that comes from ALL He provides. HE has the power to change our lives. When the timing is right, He WILL make it happen.
Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your will. We will serve you with a grateful heart of gladness and TRUST in the plans You have for our days. We will welcome joy, when we've learned to honor You with the fruit of our labors. Thank you, Lord for giving us purpose and a plan. We will open our hearts for ALL You provide, as we work hard to glorify You and gratefully feel the power of Your everlasting love. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
