Stand Still

“And as they were going down to the end of the city, Samuel said to Saul, Bid the servant pass on before us, (and he passed on,) but stand thou still a while, that I may shew thee the Word of God.” I Samuel 9:27

If you continue reading into the next chapter (I Samuel 10), you will see that Samuel was telling Saul where he should go and what he should do. He was telling him exactly what was going to happen in his life.

But it came after Saul stood still!

We need to stop and stand still sometimes to let God direct us in the direction that we should go. Too often we miss where we should be, because we are too busy to listen to what God has for us.

In the busyness of life, take a moment everyday to stand still, to talk to God, to read His Word. Take a moment to stand still and find your direction for the day.

Focus on Labouring

“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are on: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.” I Corinthians 3:6-9

Probably my favorite phrase from these verses is ‘For we are labourers together with God…’ We are not here in life labouring on our own. We are labouring with God. When we learn that simple truth, than we can realize that God has everything under control, all we have to do is our part.

Our part, our ministry, our job as a Christian is to go and tell the world about Jesus Christ! We may win some, we may plant the seed in some, we may get rejected by others…but our job is to go and tell.

Don’t worry about the results of going, let God take care of that. The Bible says we shall receive a reward of our own labour. It doesn’t say that we will receive a reward based on the results or the outcome of our labour. God is looking for that faithful servant, who continues in the ministry daily, telling others about Christ, serving the Lord, labouring for Him.

Focus on doing what God has called you to do and let Him bring the increase in your life!

Don’t Worry

“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” I Peter 5:7

Anxiety – a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

Anxiety or worry of future events only brings harm to the present happenings.

We can’t control tomorrow or next year so why waste the time God has given us today worrying about it?

God cares for you. He loves you. He wants the best for you. We should let Him take care of us…because He can do a far better job caring for us then we could.

Don’t waste today on tomorrow! Instead of worrying today, worship Him today, work for Him today, fulfill His will for your life today!
