Galatians 5:13b “Rather, serve one another humbly in love.”
Faithfully Following Through!
When Health cannot remain
as a “Given” one expects;
when “Normal” ceases staying
once one fewer years has left…
So Faith “greater than” before
then becomes with passing time!
With Reliance on GOD’s healing
more…as moments seem to fly.
Thus wait we on Redemption;
Yea, for Transformation’s touch…
Whilst our prayers still request
a lighter load be given us.
But either way, Most Sovereign,
here we serve relentless – pacing…
Pouring out as we’ve been filled
till YOUR banquet we are tasting!
As HIServant yet moving and therefore, STILL PURPOSED,
Devotional: Philippians 2:4 “…not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”
When Pain and Disease accompany ill Health, when it reaches points of being abnormal most of the time, it’s hard to clearly see (let alone serve) the needs of others.
Acts 20:35 “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the LORD JESUS HIMSELF said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
And we can read these verses as easily as the next person and still not feel or react to HIS prioritization of others’ pains before our own.
But 1 Samuel 12:24 refocuses me to whom I speak to — most of all.
“But be sure to fear the LORD and serve HIM faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things HE has done for you!”
We serve HIM relentlessly when our service is “Faithfully Following Through”.
Jeremiah 17:14 “Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; Save me and I will be saved, for YOU are my praise!”
When “despite of” and “even though” our frames experience gravely deep aches and pains, when we still press on for others in HIS NAME…then!
Then HE WHO does not slumber (ever seeing your heart while bottling your tears, shall not fail now to reward you with peace!
As you petition HIM, may HIS understanding also follow through your soul as encouragement till the Hour of HIS return!
Press through and look up!
Amen and amen!
