His master praised him for good work. ‘You have been faithful in handling this small amount,’ he told him, ‘so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Begin the joyous tasks I have assigned to you.’ TLB
God knows the plans He has for our days. He equips us to work for Him. He prepares us to recognize who sets the stage for good to come. As we begin to realize God prepares us for His plans, we develop a better understanding of how to trust. And when we respond in gratitude for gifts from the Holy Spirit, God rewards us with abilities to serve Him with a thankful heart.
Sometimes we become weary when there’s work to be done. We forget where to find needed strength. But we can find comfort in knowing Christ is with us. And when we humble our hearts for His, He helps us handle what needs to be done. He reminds us we are VALUED and WORTHY of finding joy in our lives. He helps us keep on growing as we walk in the light of His love and learn how to step in faith.
God doesn’t use only the best to serve Him. He changes lives and humbles hearts for those who respond. He reminds us no one is perfect and knows how to remove our doubt. He gives hope for the future and helps us remember we are CAPABLE, ABLE and LOVED.
How will you choose to serve the Lord? It’s never too late to discover how to be grown. God will bring peace to our hearts and help us see ourselves as He see us; beautiful and worthy of so much more than living without the passion of joy.
"In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will." Ephesians 1:11
