I love the Lord with all my heart, I love people, I love to love and serve the Lord, and I love to love and help people. So it’s no surprise I have a tendency to fall into helping people when it is NOT MY ASSIGNMENT. Do you ever take on doing something that is NOT YOUR ASSIGNMENT in the way of helping people or of anything at all? No matter how many wonderful opportunities there are to help people and to do other things for the Lord and His creation, we are to take on the ASSIGNMENTS HE GIVES US (i.e. His will for us) and NOT take on the ASSIGNMENTS HE DOES NOT GIVE US (i.e. what is not His will for us).
We who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord are to be filled with and led by the Holy Spirit of God in all things including very much so in our loving and serving the Lord and others in His name. We are incapable of helping everyone. We are incapable of doing everything. But we are capable and should be totally dedicated to doing exactly what the Lord calls us to do day by day and forevermore.
Note in the Bible Jesus and the apostles HELPED THOSE GOD THE FATHER LED THEM TO HELP. Helping people and whatever we do for the Lord is an act of love and service to the Lord and others and should be done at the leading of the Spirit of Christ for the glory of Christ, AMEN!
Let us obey the Lord in all things including in helping others. Let us spend time in prayer and reading the Bible and seeking, hearing, and obeying God each and every day and fully surrender ourselves to how He leads us, to whom He leads us, where He leads us, when He leads us, to do what He leads us to do, all for HIS GLORY, oh yes!
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
