FEAR THE LORD
For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints.
Hebrews 6:10 NASB
Serving the Lord may be considered as wasting of time by others. Many do evil things and still continue to live without a problem. We see people who don't know God succeed in many areas of life; and still ignore God and do things according to the dictate of their own hearts.
Sometimes even Christians have asked themselves what advantage they get when they worship God. What do they gain crying like people at a funeral to show they are sorry for their sins? They think wicked people are happy and they do evil things to test God's patience, and God does not punish them.
Prophet Malachi says there were people who doubted to worship God in his days. They envied wicked people success and thought God forget about them. In the mean time there was another group who feared and worshiped God and the Bible says the following about them. Then those who feared and loved the Lord spoke often of him to each other. And he had a Book of Remembrance drawn up in which he recorded the names of those who feared him and loved to think about him. (Malachi 3:16)
This morning, I want to encourage you to continue fearing the Lord. I want to encourage you to continue worshiping the true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and the Father of Jesus Christ. Jesus is coming soon, keep hold on to the faith you have, so that no one can take away your crown. The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and His ears are open to their prayers.
You need to know that if you will cry before God, He will hear you and answer your prayers. He will write your name in His Book of Remembrance which He recorded the names of those who feared Him and loved to think about Him. If you serve and love the Lord, then know that your labor is not in vain; God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name. In His time, He will lift you up from garbage dump and sets you among princes, placing you in seats of honor.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I thank You for your word. Lord I will continue walking in the truth of your word; keep me true Lord Jesus that I may be able to live a spotless and blameless life before You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
