“Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you: Stand before God for the people, so that you may bring the difficulties to God.”
Here we see Jethro, Moses father-in-law, noticing Moses is trying to do everything and he’s burning himself out! Does this sound familiar, do we try to do everything never asking for help or delegating responsibility to someone else? Are we afraid of giving something up, thinking that we are the only ones that can do it? Sometimes when we hold onto something so tightly, it becomes our god. Let it go give it to the LORD!
“Give to the LORD the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness!
1 Chronicles 16:29
The LORD isn’t impressed on how much we serve, how big our projects are or even how successful our ministry is! He really just loves us and desires us to worship Him and share that with those around us! Buildings, projects and ministries don’t save people, only Jesus can!
“I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.”
Today, don’t burn yourself out with the have to’s, instead refresh yourself in the LORD, and tell people about God and how good He is! Have a blessed week sharing the goodness of the LORD!
