Often I observe the things I am doing, and the efforts I am expending in the work of God, and to tell the truth, they look rather feeble, and given merely a cursory glance, one would be prone to say they are likely not worthy to be called God’s work.
Encouragement came to me this afternoon as I sat in my motor home living room and read from Ecclesiastes 3:14 where the wise man says,
“I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.”
Great! I said to myself. Whatever God does shall be forever, long-lasting, eternal; not feeble, not shaky, and certainly not wobbling around…nothing added to it, nothing taken away. My challenge then is to be sure that what I do is God’s work–not a work of my own, not fashioned from my mortal mind, but at the mark of His omniscient ways. My days must be spent following God’s direction, moving my hands only as He places His over mine, directing their every course–stepping in cadence to His baton, a baton of the ages.
