Laboring for the Lord
Scripture:1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, 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.
Observation: I have a difficult time standing firm. I’m swayed so easy mostly by my thoughts and worries. I don’t do the Lord’s work most of the time because I’m so preoccupied by my life here, yet when I do the Lord’s work it is the best part of my life. My blessings come from when I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing for the Lord and feel good about myself because I don’t feel I’m wasting what God has given me.
Application: I need to stand firm in what I know I should be doing for my Lord. I need to sop feeling overwhelmed all the time. God will give me strength if I’m in his will and he’ll make it happen if I just make myself available to Him.
Prayer: Dear Lord I need you to guide me on serving you. To labor in your name fulfilling the purpose you have given me. I can’t do it on my own only through your strength and love. So use me to honor you and complete the purpose you created me for.
