ENCOURAGEMENT FOR KINGDOM WORKERS
Exodus 4:10-12 NKJV "Then Moses said to the Lord , “O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” So the Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord? Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”
There's a great difference between working for God and working for man: from the onset man thinks of getting rid of you - the tests and the interviews are meant to reduce the number of applicants and select the very best and qualified; but God seeks to qualify and enable those He calls. Employers have very limited vacancies but God says the labourers are few!
There are a few amazing organisations to work for, but none like God! It is good to work for others, better to work for yourself, and best to work for God! Nothing on earth compares. Man trains, but God completes and energizes us. Man rarely gives second chances, but God patiently gives us several chances to grow and get better. Man's obligations to you ends when you stop working for him, but God has eternal blessings in store for those who have served Him faithfully, and God is righteous and just. Hallelujah!
Be encouraged today to do the work of God; and if you are working for Him already, be encouraged to continue serving Him faithfully and with the right attitude. 1 Corinthians 15:58 MSG says, "With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort."
