Topic: The Profits Of Serving God – from Seed of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018.
SCRIPTURE: I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. Isaiah 45:19
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you give God your attention, He will deal with your affliction and frustration.
We were created by God to live our lives solely for Him. The major essence of life is to serve and worship God. Therefore, life is a call unto service to God.
It is, however, important to know that God does not call anyone to seek or serve Him in vain; there are profits to be gained from serving God.
Now, what are some of these benefits?
1. To be engaged in your major assignment for existence is to be energized and vitalized by God to fulfil that assignment
When you live to serve God by doing His assignment, He will in turn, energize and vitalize you to do that assignment. If a person will live to worship the Lord, he becomes a candidate for Divine energy and vitality. So, it is by fulfilling the purpose for which you were born that God will energise you to do more.
- To serve God is to be serviced by God
To live in the service of God is to be serviced by God. The Lord promises to bless your bread and water so that you can serve Him without the distraction of sickness, poverty, etc. (Exodus 23:25). God is willing to deal with every distraction of life if a person is willing to donate himself to God in service. If you give God your attention, He will deal with your affliction and frustration.
My counsel is, make up your mind to live your life totally in the service of God and you will be serviced by God.
Remember this: If you give God your attention, He will deal with you affliction and frustration.
- Give God your undivided attention in worship and service.
- Ask God to deal with any distraction to effective service of God in your life.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You give me the grace to serve You with dedicated focus. Help me to donate my life to You totally, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
