Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Keep doing what the Lord has called you to do and do it with all of your heart. God will equip you and strengthen you to accomplish your purpose. The Lord sees everything you do and He won’t forget the love you demonstrate to his people, nothing you do for Him is ever a waste of time or effort.
She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
As godly women who love the Lord we should aspire to help the poor and needy. That doesn’t mean we all have to do extraordinary things. Sometimes, it’s simply a kind word or a sincere gesture. Each of us should do what God puts in our heart and do it with love.
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
Every believer at one time or another has doubts about their purpose in life. As long as you still have some faith God will work with what you have. It’s not about your power or your strength, it’s about having faith in the power of Christ. When you feel doubt and fear creeping in ask God to help you overcome your unbelief and increase your faith.
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
God has given you gifts specific to the purpose He has for you. Your job is to figure out what you’re passionate about and how to use those gifts to bless the world around you. Whatever your gift is, your goal should be to use up every bit of it for His purpose so that He may be glorified.
A person’s steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand their own way?
God is at work in your life and is directing your steps for His purpose. You may be going through a hard time, but if you are faithful and obedient even when you don’t understand where He’s leading you, eventually, you will see the fruits of your labor.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Jesus Christ to do the good works, which God prepared in advanced for us to do.
God put a desire in your heart for a purpose that He planned long ago. Step out in faith and ask God for guidance and direction to fulfill your God given dreams. Don’t let doubt or the devil keep you from being all you can be for the Lord.
Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.
If you are born again, you have a new identity in Christ and you are no longer a slave to sin. Because you’ve been set free you can now offer your whole self, both body and soul to God to be used for His purpose. Devote yourself to God and to His service for His purpose.
