We pray that you’ll live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul –not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable. (From The Message) Colossians 1:10-11
Are you living well for the Master? Would you say that God is proud of your work? Why would you say that? How are you learning more about God each day? Is what you learn having an impact on your “work” for Him? Where do you draw your strength to persevere through difficulties?
Anyway around it, daily time with God is essential for the Christian! During that time God will guide you with where He wants you serving Him…He will show you how and where to invest your precious time… He will reveal more of Himself to you…He will prepare you for what you will face that day…He will teach you how to apply His Word to your life…and He will give you the strength to endure! Have you had your time with God today? If not, how effective will you be today?
