Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves, We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Psalm 100:2-3 NKJV
This Psalm is a song of praise for the Lord’s faithfulness to His people.
If I had the words to express how I feel I would pour out my soul to you. I would pull back the veil that conceals the things God put in my heart. You would know the joy and peace I feel because I dwell among the sheep of the Lord’s pasture!
Somewhere a Pastor is sitting at a desk. The Word of God is open before him. He has been serving God for many years. He was an alcoholic. God put a hunger for His word in this new creature. He was called to lead. The desire of his heart is to share the Word of God with other people.
A young man is standing before a group of men in a mission chapel. He is the son of a Pastor. He walked with God as a teenager. He left home to serve in the Army. He was discharged for drug abuse. He chose to live as a homeless drug addict.
He wandered into a rescue mission in the inner city. He is still there sharing the love of God with needy people. He knows this is where God called to serve!
God had a plan for their lives even before they surrendered to Jesus. God created them with gifts and talents to serve Jesus. They were lying dormant undiscovered and unused. Stepping out in faith to serve Jesus was difficult at first. With each step of faith God provided the faith to take the next step!
God has a purpose and a plan for your life. He created you with unique gifts and talents to serve Jesus. Do not let them remain dormant undiscovered and unused.
We cannot all be pastors and mission directors. We are not all called to serve God in the same way.
A man sits at his computer sending out e-mails. He encourages people with God’s love. He exhorts them to step out in faith to serve Jesus. This formerly bitter angry and hurting man has learned when he steps out in faith to serve Jesus God provides the faith to take the next step!
God is calling you to step out in faith. Serve Jesus according to His good and perfect plan for your life. Serve Jesus for the glory and honor of Almighty God!
