Topic: Don’t Be Slothful In Spiritual Matters
Scripture: “Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord” Romans 12:11 KJV
Message: Don’t allow the devil lie to you. You are God’s ambassador and His powerhouse. You are God’s authorized agent on earth. Yes, challenges may come as you navigate through the banana peels of life but you will come out victorious! By virtue of the price that has been paid on your behalf, you can never be stranded in life. However, we must never trivialize our relationship with God. That is why prayer is important. That we operate under grace does not mean we are no longer going to pray, worship or even fast; those are the things that test your understanding of God and assist you in your walk with God.
Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from serving God consistently. You must keep your enthusiasm alive in order for you to possess what God has made available for you. When you are not getting the results you’re expecting and believing for, check your enthusiasm and your pursuit. As the race gets tougher, never get casual with God. Rather, choose to be consistent. You are not worshipping God to make Him God; you are worshipping Him because He is God already. With or without you, He is God and He does not actually need you for anything. It is a privilege to have Him as your God. So, when God is telling you to get involved in whatever He is doing, it is rather for your good. He is complete all by Himself.
That circumstance will not be the end of you. I am standing in faith with you that with your eyes, you will see the manifestation of everything you have believed God for. Let the tempest rage and let the billows toss high, God’s plan and purpose for you will be established. The covenant keeping God will keep you and no evil will come near your dwelling place. Only with your eyes shall you behold the recompense of the wicked. Take your eyes away from impossibilities and set your eyes on the finished work of Christ.
