|TODAY’S SERVING JESUS IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE“Then Moses called Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and of good courage, for you must go with this people to the land which the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall cause them to inherit it.” Deuteronomy 31:6-7|
I think my ministry work is challenging, but I cannot even fathom what people like Joshua in the Bible went through as the Lord called him to lead a massive number of people into the Promised Land especially considering the challenges they faced. They had unfathomable giants to face. How could he possibly go forth in his ministry work let alone to do so victoriously?
HE COULD NOT DO IT IN HIS WEAKNESS.
HE COULD DO IT IN GOD’S STRENGTH.
HE COULD NOT DO IT IN FEAR.
HE COULD DO IT WITH COURAGE.
HIS TRUST NEEDED TO BE IN THE LORD TO LEAD HIM FORTH!
If we try to serve the Lord without the Lord, we will fail miserably and miss the point. The point of serving the Lord is ABOUT THE LORD and THROUGH THE LORD and FOR THE GLORY OF THE LORD!
Whatever the Lord calls us to do to serve Him day by day, let us go forth IN HIS STRENGTH WITH COURAGE FOR THE GLORY OF CHRIST, oh yes!
