Attentive to Serve..

wait2Attentively Waiting upon the Lord

Isaiah 40:31
but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

service4
Ps 123:2
We keep looking to the Lord our God for his mercy,
just as servants keep their eyes on their master,
as a slave girl watches her mistress for the slightest signal.

service

Some years ago, I heard a minister say that waiting upon the Lord, was not sitting still doing nothing, but like a waiter in a restaurant, serving attentively, with excellence, constantly looking to their clients very eye and hand motions, being ready for their next course, or slightest need.

Can we not serve Jesus and His people this way? Attentively, aggressively seeking Holy Spirit for the next need of our Master, every ready to jump, serve, listen, and move as He leads?

obey1

Waiting for God is not laziness. Waiting for God is not going to sleep. Waiting for God is not the abandonment of effort.  Waiting for God means, first, activity under command; second, readiness for any new command that may come; third, the ability to do nothing until the command is given.

Let’s Pray:
Father, Grant us attentive, sensitive hearts to hear, obey, and anticipate what Your heart says is needed next. We love You Lord Jesus, and would serve You today, Amen!

Mark 1, Ex 23, 24, and Psalm 23 are today’s readings!

Let Jesus be your personal pastor…
The Lord is my Shepherd, my personal pastor, Lord, guide, provider, and source of life.
Indeed He leads me, as I seek Him, about everything. Been thinking about how this works in the real world, especially in our local church.
Seems it comes down to this one thing: Is Jesus our personal Lord.
When He is, we can talk to Him about anything, and church becomes a place to worship, serve one another, to recognize and celebrate one anothers gifts, and to support and encourage local leadership, recognizing that no matter how great they are, they too are only human, and under shepherd to Him.
With an attitude of serving the Body of Christ, in our gifts, preferring one another, I think that church becomes a place where we, no matter how much we grow and see great things, becomes a privileged place of serving in a vision, greater than any one of us…
Let’s Pray:
“Father, help me to find and take my place in Your Body, Your church, Your place of service in the kingdom, and to serve You, and recognize and support Your other gifts, that You might be glorified Lord Jesus, Amen’

Do you know Jesus?
Each day, we seek first the kingdom of God, and this post is designed to encourage you to read through your Bible, daily, each year.

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Joh 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

Each day, as we read, we must meet with Him, for He is life!

Knowing Him, is the difference between heaven and hell, healing and sickness, heartbreak or peace, success or failure…

Today, give Him your life, for He is King of the universe.

Ac 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Call on Him today! He loves you!

Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Let’s pray!
“Father God in heaven, I come to you now, and ask that You would forgive me. I choose to believe, that You raised Jesus from the dead, and Lord Jesus, I receive You now. Please come into my life, and fill me with Your presence, plan, and purpose, that I am created to live. Fill me with Your love, and may I obey, and love all those You place in my path, Amen.’
