Helping God’s People

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 6:10      

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.       

The Lord blesses those who are a blessing to others. The love you show to God’s people as He puts it in your heart to help and encourage them is evidence of your faith and your love for Him. God is not unjust that He would ever forget the work you do or the love you show by helping and ministering to His people. Let God work through you to show love to His people as you grow spiritually and walk in His wisdom and truth. Any good deed you do with a right heart for His glory will not go unnoticed or unrewarded.

Be Strong & Don’t Give Up

2 Chronicles 15 7

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Chronicles 15:7

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.

 

We all have times when we feel discouraged and we feel like giving up and quitting.  If the Lord has put a “work” in your heart He will make a way for you to do it.  That doesn’t mean it won’t be hard, because it might be, but that’s okay because God is on your side. What you do for God, and for his honor and service, will not be overlooked. Be strong and don’t give up!

Showing Kindness to Your Enemy

Proverbs 25 21-22.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 25:21-22

If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.  In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.

 

Have you ever heard the expression “kill them with kindness”?  It means to put an end to anger and bitterness by showing kindness and generosity. As metals are melted by heaping coals upon them, so is the heart softened by kindness. (Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary) The more you treat your enemy with unexpected kindness and generosity the more they will see the same love, forgiveness, mercy and grace that the Lord shows you.

Be Strong & Don’t Give Up

2 Chronicles 15 7

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Chronicles 15:7

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.

 

We all have times when we feel discouraged and we feel like giving up.  If the Lord has put a “work” in your heart he will make a way for you to do it.  That doesn’t mean it won’t be hard, because it might be, but that’s okay because God is on your side.  Be strong and don’t give up!

The Ungrateful

1 10-6 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Luke 6:35

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.  Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

 

God commands us to love our enemies, even the ungrateful.  For some this may be harder than others, but if we are grounded in God’s love and mercy, we can move past the human nature and into the spiritual characteristic of Christ.    Our heavenly Father has shown us great mercy and expects us to be kind to those who are ungrateful and wicked, not because they deserve it, but because we are striving to live a life that pleases Him.

God Never Forgets

1 9-14 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 6:10

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.

 

There are so many people that need help right now and will continue to need our help in the future.   If you are blessed to be in a position to help those in need I’m sure they would be grateful for whatever you can do.  The Lord sees all that you do and never forgets the work you do or the love you show him by helping his people. You will be rewarded in heaven and for all eternity.
