A trophy is something that looks good for display. It is also an item that is given as a reward. The problem with being a trophy is that it is only for decoration. A trophy does not define the value of a person’s hard work. When serving the LORD, do not just become someone who only “looks” good. If we do not fully serve him with our all, then we are just a trophy for the wrong team. There is so much more to who we are then just outer presentation. Trophies normally sit on shelves and collects dust. Are you doing everything to please God or just only on the outer surface?
Allow God to use you. He has design you with purpose, substance and favor. Do not diminish your value or settle by being a trophy. If the same principle applies in a relationship with people, so it is with God. When you become a trophy for display, then the enemy has the power to brag off of you. You are a trophy for him.
God bragged on his servant job. It is written in Job 1:8: “And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” Can God brag on you through the trials and tribulations of your situation? If so, you shall receive tenfold for he is the ultimate restorer. When you play on God’s team you cannot lose. If you are faithful even until the end of time, he shall reward you with a crown of life.
No matter how many times you fall, it’s important to get back up. As long as you have breath in your body, it is never too late. Be encouraged. No matter how old, young or how many mistakes you have made, please get up and try again. He’s waiting to accept you in his arms. Don’t allow your faults to be bigger than God.
If you have to start over, start over. Strive for the best in every thing you do. It’s never too late to dedicate your life to him. He is a faithful God of second chances. Do not allow guilt, condemnation and conviction to stop you from running into his arms. Whatever your goal or dream is, it’s never too late. He will restore whatever you lost. Do not throw in the towel for the best is yet to come. #Morning Inspiration #Itsnevertoolate
Patience is one of the most difficult things to master. It’s an area that many fall short in especially when it comes to short term or long term situations. A test of patience can be waiting in a long line or waiting for career advancement, marriage etc. If we do not have patience, then how can we grow, if we are like children trying to get what we want when we want it. It’s important for us let our patience blossom. Patience develops discipline.
If you have the faith and you have the action that corresponds with it, then all you need now is patience. Allow your faith to stir up your patience. They both go hand in hand together. Patience gives us a chance to humbly wait on God. When we wait on God to do things his way, it allows him to step in to handle it righteously. James 1:4: says “Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience”.
Sometimes the only thing that’s holding us back is patience. What good is faith and works if we have no patience? Waiting requires patience. Receiving the best requires patience . When his word comes to pass, you will not only need faith but the precious garments of patience. Wait upon the LORD and he will make sure that your patience will pay off.
