All that you possess is by My hand, planned from the beginning that you would carry your load and bear much fruit. Your work is the fruit of diligent hands. The good works of the believer are a fragrant offering to the Father, pleasing to He who brought you from the dust. No longer are you lost in the elements of creation or the depths of your sin. You have been given life and redemption that your good works would bless others and bring glory to the Father. In giving, your blessing returns, holy works with My hands supporting your own. You are equipped for such things, to bless, to lift, to carry great load. Find My joy in your labor. Work with the heart that beats for eternity and the joy of He who has blessed you to do so.
Heb 13:20-21 (ESV) – Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen
Bottom Line: Sometimes we forget that we have all that we need. Sometimes work and family seem to be too much. The truth is, we have been well-equipped for the job and much fruit will be produced as we press on, knowing He has equipped us well for our tasks and work in life. Through our hands, His Word works in us.
