Benefits of Serving the Lord

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2581
Isaiah 54:17 (NET) No weapon forged to be used against you will succeed; you will refute everyone who tries to accuse you. This is what the Lord will do for his servants – I will vindicate them,” says the Lord.

When Kara was working in the city and living in the suburbs, unlike most of her colleagues, she got to the office and started work very early but closed as early as she could because she didn't want to miss evening fellowships in the church. She was thus committed to attending church meetings because she understood that she was first and foremost a servant of almighty God.

Unlike her, most of her colleagues came to work late and also closed really late because they didn't have such commitments to church as she did. Because of this (closing from work late), many of them would fraternize and go from the office to bars and clubs and parties while Kara was either at home with her family or in church with her bigger family.

The time came for promotion and Kara was the most qualified to be promoted as head of her department. Her records were impeccable and she was very efficient at her job. But Ben, her immediate boss who was to approve her promotion, was not willing to do so because he wanted Joe, who was his clubbing buddy, to get the promotion instead. They discussed this among themselves in the club and decided that the best way to prevent Kara from the promotion was for Ben to issue her a query. This he did promptly. Even though the query was unjustifiable, it was so cleverly written that it took the wisdom of God for Kara to refute it.

When Kara read the frivolous query her immediate boss gave her, she understood exactly what was going on. She remembered today's scripture and had the boldness that it applied to her because she could identify ways in which she was serving the Lord. The Lord gave her wisdom to respond to the query, and her response revealed that her boss wrote that query for no justifiable reason. Because she copied the chief executive of the organization in the email with which she responded to the query (since she knew he was going to see everything during the promotion interview), the chief read the query and her response and as a result, issued Ben a serious query for giving such a diligent worker that frivolous and unjustifiable query.

By the time God was through with Kara's enemies in that organization, they were all very afraid of her and she became promoted above them. All these benefits accrued to her because she was a servant of the Lord who knew her rights in the Lord.

Go into today remembering that because you're a servant of the Lord, you will refute every tongue risen up against you in judgment, whether spiritually or physically. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord. God is the one who vindicates His servants.

If you're not sure if you're a servant of the Lord, it is not too late to begin to live a life that exists for the purpose of the kingdom.

Prayer: Lord, help me serve you and walk in all my privileges as your servant. 
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
