If your life is anything like mine, you are over worked and always busy. I believe that I spend more time in traffic and in the car during the day then anyone I know. We are running from place to place and have obligation after obligation. We are so busy WORKING… Career, part time job, side hustle, small business, career students, volunteering, organizational affiliations, and the list can go on and on for us all!
But yesterday I heard a scripture leap in my spirit. I believe that on this Friday God wants us to spend time with him in Meditation on the topic “work.”
I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.
When you apply for a job, usually the job posting has a description of the position. The post normally does not go into total detail about the position, but it will provide enough information for you to determine whether you are qualified for the job. Several weeks ago, each counselor in my office received a copy of our job description. It listed in detail what we are what we are responsible for doing in our position. Many of us already know our responsibilities in the place of our employment, but what about our job duties as Christians?
God has blessed so many of us with unique talents and special gifts. But how many of you actually utilize your gifts and talents for HIM WHO HAS SENT YOU? So many of are using our talents that God gave us for everything except the church. And our motives for everything that we do are to live wealthy lives, live in houses that are beyond our means, buy clothes, shoes, and handbags that are outside our budget, to be socialites, famous, well known, and turn heads. But on today God wants to know WHEN? When are you going to begin using your talents that HE gave you for the Kingdom of God? Many of you think that we are Christians just because we pay God a visit every Sunday and give our offering. But He wants to know on today…. When will you WORK the WORKS of HIM who sent YOU?
LISTEN! The time for you to do what God has sent you here to do is NOW! The scripture goes on to say that night is coming when no one can work. There will be a time when everything that you do to UPLIFT YOURSELF will be obsolete. And you will not have time to fulfill the things that God has sent you here to do. As a CHILD I learned that ONLY WHAT YOU DO FOR CHRIST WILL LAST! No one will remember the square footage of your house, no one will remember the size of your RIMS, the make and model of your car, the Brand Purse you carry, how much your shoes cost… but what WILL LAST is WHAT you have done for CHRIST!
So when will you WORK THE WORK OF HIM WHO SENT YOU? Jesus said in John 9:4 to his disciples as they passed by a man who was blind. The disciples wanted to know who sinned for this man to be born blind. And Jesus answered “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must work the works of Him who sent me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.” And then Jesus spit on the ground and made clay with the dirt and anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, and he received SIGHT!
God wants you to know on this Friday, that there are so many people waiting on your gifts and talents. They are the people standing on the side of the road, waiting for you to pass right by them. And if you are caught up in their shortcomings— why they are homeless, why they are on drugs, you will miss your opportunity to WORK the WORKS! There will be so many people healed, set free, and delivered from what God has placed on the inside of YOU! I know sometimes you feel like you can’t do it! I know sometimes you feel like, WHY ME? I know sometimes you feel like you are unworthy! But it is NOW TIME FOR YOU to WORK THE WORKS of HIM WHO SENT YOU!
God did not give you your gifts and talents to make you FAMOUS. He gave them to you, so that you can Make Known HIS GREATNESS! And so many people are asking, “When will it be my turn! When will I get a break and Everyone Know Me! When will I be Sunday’s Best, selected and honored?” And God is asking, “When will you Work the Work that I sent you to do?”
So on this Friday, the rest of the year, and for the rest of your life… WORK the WORKS of HIM who SENT YOU!
God, with bowed head and humble hearts we first want to ask that you forgive us. Forgive us for thinking that everything that we accomplish is for our glory. Forgive us for thinking that all the plans and ideas that you have given us were only to uplift ourselves. Forgive us God for being so wrapped up in ourselves, our plans, our money, and our lives. God give us the wisdom to know that ONLY what we do for you will LAST! God bless us that we may understand that you have placed us here not to work for ourselves, but to Work the Works for your Glory. God we thank you for the gifts, talents, anointing that you have placed over our lives. We thank you that you have considered us. We come against the yokes of bondage that have us self centered. We come against and are liberated from all generational curses that have oppressed and hinder our ability to Work your Works! We declare that everything that has hindered the fulfillment of God’s original plan and purpose for our lives are broken. We cover this pray in the blood of Jesus! Amen and Thank you God!
