A Servant’s Heart
Oh, how I have a servant’s heart when it comes to the Lord! Want to know why I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to serve the Lord?
It’s because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Lord to no end! I am madly, passionately, head over heels in LOVE with the Lord God almighty! My exceeding desire and commitment and faithfulness in serving Him is based on my exceeding LOVE for Him! Want to know why I love Him so passionately, fervently, and with such zeal and fire?
It’s because of who He is, what He has done, is doing, and will do. It’s because of His love, mercy, grace, patience, goodness, strength, greatness, tenderness, sternness, righteousness, holiness, peace, hope, joy, Creation, nature, comfort, nearness, chastening, correction, care, magnificence, redemption, healing, everyday blessings, spiritual blessings, guidance, direction, wisdom, fellowship, friendship, companionship, encouragement, lordship, sovereignty, power, and on and on His glory, splendor, graciousness, awesomeness, and amazingness go! Want to know why I fall endlessly more in love with Him?
It’s because of the time I spend alone in His presence each and every day. The more time I spend alone with Him reading the Bible, praying, praising Him, worshiping Him, seeking Him, walking with Him, listening to Him, hearing Him, obeying Him, being changed and refined by Him, drawing closer to Him and Him to me, repenting, purifying myself before Him, learning from Him and of Him, enjoying and experiencing Him in communing with Him, singing to Him, being loved by Him and loving Him, loving Him, loving Him, receiving instructions from Him, and learning to humbly faithfully devotedly follow Him, the more I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Him and desire to serve Him and in so doing to tell the world about Him!
My servant’s heart is borne of my love for Him which grows and grows in being in His presence and in being wholeheartedly, utterly committed to Him day in and day out!
I am totally devoted to the Lord 24-7 and so very much encourage you to do the same. And the more committed you are to Him, the more devoted, the more you receive His love and return His love, the more you follow Him, the more you spend time alone with Him, the deeper you dive into His Word to read it and live by it, the more you are filled with His Spirit who lives inside His followers and yield to His Spirit leading you through life, the more I believe you, too, will desire to love – and to serve Him – with ALL your heart.
Fall in love with the Lord, friend. Believe in Him with all your heart. Love Him with all your heart. Follow Him with all your heart. Obey Him with all your heart. Serve Him with all your heart. And may you have a servant’s heart with unimaginable dedication to doing whatever He desires with love, humility, and thanksgiving each and every day from here going forth and forevermore!
Father, help everyone reading this to devote their lives utterly to you, to be totally devoted to you, to fall exceedingly in love with you, to spend time alone with you and the Bible daily, and to love and serve you with all their hearts every single day and forever and ever, AMEN!
“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes which I command you today for your good?” Deuteronomy 10:12-13
