HE STILL VALUES
Remember your Creator
in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
and the years approach when you will say,
“I find no pleasure in them”—
Ecclesiastes 12:1 NIV
One thing that you need to remind yourself everyday is that you were once created. God created you and made you the way you are today! In other words He is the one who owns you, and one day He will call you back to Him. Then you will be judged according to what you did in this body whether good or bad.
Sometimes life makes us to feel like we will live forever. When everything seem to be in its best and we are in good health; we tend to forget that we are just passengers on this Earth. Some people used to love God when they had nothing; but when they got all things they desired, they forget God completely.
The Bible reminds us to remember our Creator in the days of our youth; in other words we need to remember Him when we are still having strength. We need to serve Him while there is still time, and give ourselves to His will before it's too late! One thing you need to know for sure is that one day you will get old; and if you won't invest your life right now to God, then you will get old with regrets.
This morning, I want you to know that God still values your service to Him. I want to encourage you to continue serving Him in the area that He has called you to serve. Don't concentrate on the other people words, but keep focusing on Jesus. Do whatever the Lord is commanding you to do; even if it may not be popular or exciting like other ministries in the body of Christ.
God will reward you according to your faithfulness to Him; and bless you for your obedience of His word. You don't have to be a preacher or singer to serve God in the Church of Jesus Christ. What you need is the willing heart that will do anything that the Lord commands. Your reward is found in those small things that sometimes seem to be like nothing; if you will do them well, then God will one day remember your name in His kingdom.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to serve You in my life. Give me strength to continue doing what You have called me to do knowing that one day You will reward me according to my faithfulness in Christ Jesus. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
