Morning with Ebenezer


Do everything you can to live a quiet life. Mind your own business. Work with your hands, just as we told you to. Then unbelievers will have respect for your everyday life. And you won’t have to depend on anyone.

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 NIRV

The Bible teaches us everything about life; you need to have the right eyes to be able to see them clearly. It takes the Spirit of God to open your eyes to see the message which God has for you through the pages of the Bible.

This is why if other people who don't have the Spirit of God try to read it; they tend to get different interpretations which are not God's. We have many people who don't even know God who have been trying to interpret the Bible; and they ended up getting false meanings of Scriptures. 

The Bible teaches us to live a quiet life, and mind our own businesses. It teaches us to work hard, that we may be respected with those who are outside the body of Christ. This will help us to be independent and give no one something to talk against us. It's a shame for someone to call himself a Christian and have lazy attitude when it comes to work. We know that Jesus walked hard, and He prayed hard for all of us.

This morning, I want to encourage you to ask God to understand the Scriptures and put them in to practices. If you want to grow in the Lord and live a victorious life in Christ then you need to live according to the word of God. One thing I have learned is that there is no shortcut when comes to the things of God. You need to take a full course and pass all the tests if you want to live right.

If you want to see true success in your life then you need to learn to work hard. Those who seek to find shortcuts in life; they end up in pain and regrets. If you are in school then make sure you fulfill the purpose that made you go there at a first place. Whatsoever God has given you to do, learn to do it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men; since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, forgive me for where I have been lazy when it comes on fulfilling my duties. Help me to work hard every day and put your word into practices. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
