It Pays To Serve God.
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”
Psalms 37:4 (NKJV)
It pays to do things right even in the face of adversity, still do what is right and God will vindicate you and bring you out. Don’t follow a wrong example because of tough times. Ps 37:1-4 says “Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shall be fed. Delight yourself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 says Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit”
Some people today are leaving their lives independent of their creator, they think they can make it without God but I still hear God say “Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain”. The new wave of dependency on self is breaking up homes and scattering the destiny of children because of individualism. No you are meant for connection. You were wired to be inter-independent and to be connected to your divine source. Crisis begins from when we want to walk out of God’s original master plan for our lives. You are meant for fellowship with your creator and relationship with your fellow brother.
Beloved, understand that it pays to serve God and to do those things that are pleasing to the Him. No matter the season of life that you are in, choose to serve God and remain connected to Him and to your fellow brother.
Don’t ever envy the wicked and don’t follow them because the wicked will be cut down as grass, Pursue God and He will give you a beautiful future.
I declare to you today that you are blessed and not cursed, you are the beloved and not forsaken, your future is bright and your tomorrow is colourful. You will fulfill destiny in Jesus name.
