Get Back To Work
Get Back To Work by Keith Cook
"Six days you shall do thy work..." Exodus 23:12
God often gives us tasks to do for Him that are nothing more than tests of our character or faith building exercises. God loves us and wants us to be happy, but He also wants us to grow up spiritually. He longs for us to eat the meat of His word and to desire to do great things for Him.
Today (Labor Day in the USA) will be with family and friends. We will swim in the swimming pool, and eat the best meals we have had in weeks. We will have fancy deserts with homemade ice cream. We will probably talk about every thing from politics to cars, and it will be a full day.
The time with my family and friends will be fun, but by the end of the day, I will be ready to get back to work. I long to be On The Go for Jesus. I get uneasy with too much rest and time off.
I think all Christians feel this way when they have been taking it easy and resting in the goodness of God and not actually working for Him. There comes a time when we know that we are now ready to go back to work. There are times when we need to sit down and soak up all the goodness of God but there always comes the time when the Master stands up and says, "Now it is time to go back to work!"
Why not work for Jesus this week. Take each day as a call and a challenge to do something for God. Jesus will use you. Jesus will guide you. Jesus will strengthen you. Just do the work He gives you.
Daily Prayer Focus: Thank God for a day to work for Him.
