Let Us Also Work for It

HARD WORK

 And He did this to fully equip and perfect the saints (God’s people) for works of service. Ephesians 4:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I remember when being a tutor in China oh so many times a Chinese would come to me and beg me to help them pass an exam so they could get a visa to Canada. When I asked them when they exam was, most times their reply was in a month. As their level of English was very low they were informed that it would take a lot of work but could be accomplished. Their reaction was that as the teacher that was my responsibility. In other words, they expected me to do all the work while they put minimal effort into the task. Of course they failed miserably and of course their reaction was always they same. They blamed me.

How many have the same attitude towards Jehovah.

Say there is going to be a test at school. Instead of studying for the test the night before you fervently pray for Jehovah to give you the knowledge to pass the test. When you fail you cry baby to Jehovah that it is His fault when in reality it is your own fault for being so lazy and irresponsible.

Here is the way it works properly.

Sometimes Jehovah will do the work for you because the task is too great. This is to reveal His power and wisdom to us which brings praise, respect and adoration.

Sometimes we have to work in conjunction with the Holy Spirit. This is to teach us to put forward and effort while trusting in the Holy Spirits guidance, no matter how unconventional it is.

Sometimes Jehovah provides the tools but we have to do the work. This is to teach us to take responsibility and to teach us to have confidence in the skills Jehovah has blessed us with.

“Whatsoever we beg of God, let us also work for it.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Thank you ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for blessing me with being able to determine which form of work is necessary for me to accomplish the task You have assigned for me to do in my privilege of being my Beloved King Jesus in Heavens free will servant. I exalt You in His magnificent name. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. So true. …
    I pray you’re still hanging in there and not facing any set-backs in regards to smoking.

    • Thank you.

      Please enjoy your communion with our Beloved in His Cathedral (nature) today and every day

      • I’m grateful when I awake to see a new day each and every day….always giving Jesus thanks 🙏🏾 for what others may take for granted. Blessings!!

      • I sleep in a tent (have always been an outdoors man (even in -30 weather). Every morning I am woken up to a beautiful chorus of birds to greet the day. What a wonderful gift from our Beloved.
        That is very commendable of you for being such a grateful daughter of God. It also makes for a much better life.

      • -30 degree weather……you’re very brave. I know fresh air is good but that’s a just a little too fresh.

      • Not when you winterize our (The Lords and my place of meeting. We have many wonderful talks in this place.) Tabernacle. This place has become a bit of an attraction to the neighborhood. Yes that I sleep here but also that there has been some natural disasters that have affected the local area but not touched this place.

      • 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
