“Therefore, my brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” – 1 Corinthians 15:58
We are on the threshold of a New Year. What will it bring? Will we find ourselves drawing closer to the Lord or will we get dull in our zeal for the Lord?
Do you get weary when what you think the Lord has called you to do does not work according to your plan? I have to confess this happens to me and I have to get a grip and remember the times He has worked way beyond what my plan would have included.
One of these instances involved a call from a pastor in Pakistan, who asked to translate the book I wrote, The Power of the Lamb’s Blood, into his language, Urdu. We were not aware the book was in Pakistan. Distribution in the U.S. had never reached my expectations, but God had a plan beyond mine which has also included a translation in Tamil (India) and Vietnamese.
I resolve to renew my commitment to do His work to the best of my ability, pray to know His will, walk in the light He gives me, and stay steadfast in His work. I invite you who are reading this to join me in this resolution in whatever he has called you to do.
