Apostle Grace Lubega
Exodus 23:25-26 (KJV); And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.
Child of the Most High God, your service and labour in the gospel is not in vain. This is regardless of what you do; whether you are on the pulpit preaching or undertake tasks that have no visibility but are still in service to God.
The Lord, who called you to serve Him has attached a promise to that service. In our theme scripture, He promises to bless your bread and water and to take sickness away from you. He has promised that nothing attached to you shall cast its young(miscarry) or be barren. Our Master will fulfill your days.
Do we serve because we want to be rewarded by God? No. We serve because we love and honour Him. However, He is a just Master. In Hebrews 6:10, He says that He is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love.
I speak to you who questions whether it is worth it, I speak to you who wonders if it really matters.
Don’t be deceived. There is a blessing that follows every servant of God. The Message Version of our theme scripture says that He will make sure you live a full and complete life. Your part is to remain faithful, committed and available.

PRAYER: Loving and Most Precious Father, I thank You for this word. Thank You for finding me worthy to serve You and contribute to the work of Your ministry. My hand is on the plough and I shall not remove it, no matter the circumstance. I spend and I am spent for the sake of the gospel, even as You use me for Your purposes, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
