Do God's Work and all Your Needs will be Met
Fri May 23, 2014 12:22 am by Camille
God always provides for our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

As long as we are doing the work of the Lord God will always meet our needs. As long as we are pointing others to God, He will always see that you have plenty.

Do the work of the Lord share what you know from the bible and share your testimony of how you were healed or set free and God …

PostSubject: If the Burden You Are Carrying is Heavy, It's Not from Jesus   Sat Jun 28, 2014 12:18 am

If the Burden You Are Carrying is Heavy,
It's Not from Jesus

After attending a Southern Baptist university and majoring in religion, I followed the call of man to pastor a medium-sized Southern Baptist church in a little town in Central Missouri. It was a status symbol to be fresh out of the university and already have a church. I referred to it as "my church!" They were "my people!" But the deacons were not "mine." I belonged to them.

It was very difficult to preach a good sermon in those days, mainly because I didn't have any. Each Sunday as the service ground to a close, I would call on one of the elderly saints to pray and I would quietly slip out while every head was bowed and every eye was closed, to the back door. I took my position next to the coat rack and one by one I shook the hands of the farmers as they left and tried to make small talk. I was a city boy and I knew very little about farming. One lady, every week, made the same comment to me as she departed from the church. She would say, "Keep it up and one of these days you'll make a good preacher." I was overcome by the great encouragement I received!

When I would get to the car to leave, things didn't get any better. Loretta, my wife, loved me, but when I would ask her, "How did I do today?" there would be great silence.

While I was the young pastor of this church, I did the best I could, but I was nervous and scared, although I did what I was supposed to do to fulfill the position that I thought I was supposed to have. Decades later I'm the pastor of Walk on the Water Faith Church. I am the happiest man on earth. I love what I am doing and lives are being changed. Thousands are being affected through this ministry each week. I love going to the office. I love preaching and teaching. In short, I'm having the time of my life.

So what's the difference? The difference is this. Years ago, I was following a pattern of what I thought religious men wanted me to do. It may seem strange, but you can do good things and still not be at peace if God hasn't called you to that work. Today I am doing something God called me to do. I listen to Him. He's my boss and He treats His employees well.

So the conclusion is this. If you are in the ministry and the burden is heavy, it's not God. The task and the calling can be enormous and international in scope. But if you are in His will, the burden will be light and the yoke will be easy.

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light (Matt. 11:29-30).
