the love of God)
over a few things
am writing this is hopes it will clear up some things that many struggle with
and are uncertain of what one is to be busy doing for the Kingdom of God.
came to me clearly was, be faithful over a few things, after this coming to
mind I thought on this and I ask what this actually means and what I am to be
doing for the Lord.
reading St. Matthew 25 it becomes very clear as to what the Lord is referring
to for each of us to be doing. In this passage of scripture it explains what
the people of God are to do.
problem with many is desiring to become great and well known for the works of
the Lord and here it tells us that unless we care for those that are in need we
are in for a rude awaking. By skimming over what the Lord informed each of us
to be busy about.
speaking of the talents is not only about money as many believe it to be, if
you read on as the Lord make the statement about feeding, clothing , visiting
those sick or in prison, helping a stranger that by us doing so we have done so
can’t get by with dropping a coin in the offering plate, for the Lord has
required us to be caring for those that have need and by no means think just
because there are those that are having to struggle makes anyone any better
now let’s get into this a little more, what does it mean faithful over a few
things? This is a very vital thing that the people of God need to receive and
have found a great peace in knowing each and everything I do to become a help
in any way I find contentment in doing. By working on the faithfulness of a few
things has taken a great pressure off of my life. It is incredible realization
knowing I am pleasing the Lord by doing all the few things He ask of me to be
faithful in doing.
is just wonderful to know this and to be able to work on helping all that may
need help or just being a friend to those that need a friend. This is being
like Jesus my friends, and I would not want it any other way than to know I am
pleasing the Lord and that He is pleased with me.
that went on in my life, I truly found what the work of the Lord entails and
involves. It is becoming as the Lord by reaching out be on my needs and helping
others during the time of my own need, to truly forget about me. After all I
was sort of sick of myself at that time, to focus on others was the very thing
that was and is needed in the people. What a beautiful lesson that was the Lord
truly need to get their minds off of becoming great and start working where the
real needs are. People need to get over their self in to thinking they are far
greater than anyone.
and every day there is a work to be busy about, what are some of the things
that are required of us? Being there for those around you and becoming a
support to each and everyone, no matter what the need might be or whom it may
be as well as what life style they may be living.
is not at all up to the people of God to be separating anybody or cast aside.
How dare anyone thinking them to be better than anyone else.
this is going on, this is not at all the work of the Lord and this is something
very few seem to realize that the Lord has made it clear, we are not the judge.
He is the only one that has that powers by no means are we given such a position.
now that is out of the way, what could it be the Lord is asking for His people
to be by being faithful over a few things?
around is a work to be done, it does not matter how small it may appear to be
and it sure does not matter if anyone is being recognized as to the work one is
have found it to be important to be there for my family and to be a support to
each of them and show the right spirit that only God gives me. Whatever it may
it’s just being there to take someone somewhere or to pick them up this is important
to them and so it is important to the Lord. If there is something needing done
then do it. Stop complaining about having to be there for others, do you not
know that is just what the Lord is talking about doing and this is the work of
I am on call all hours of the day and or night whenever someone just needs to
talk or to ask for prayer, can we not see just how vital that is to the one needing
guidance and or comfort?
have no problem at all with people needing prayer; if I do then I truly need to
ask God to work on why I am being selfish and or what is working in me to be
acting in such away.
had to learn this the hard way and here is how the Lord made it so clear to me
how important being there is, I went through some testing time, who was I able
to trust and to call. So what I did was ask the Lord what you are teaching me in
this mess I am in, and of course He made it clear, BE THERE FOR ALL MY PEOPLE!
He allowed me to know how it feels to not have anyone to help or guide me or
even pray for me.
after I was suffering from brokenness and just did not know what to do to find
a way out of the pit I had found myself in, I was told of a pastor that was
such a caring person and he was a compassion soul. I decided to attend one of
his meetings, I can tell you this I felt it was a Devine order from the Lord
for me to meet Pastor Dabney and his church.
I walked in the church I felt a comforter that I had somehow lost over the
events that had taken place in my life.
he did was show me a love that only comes from God and I was not there to go
and preach for preaching was not what I needed. What I needed was healing of a
broken heart and that is just what the Lord had planned for me.
time I attended the meetings I was asked to go in the counseling room and pray
with people and counsel with them,
I sit there listening to them and then praying for them I soon realized what
the Lord was doing through this wonderful pastor. The Lord was healing me as I
was reaching out to others and helping them right in the very midst of my own
I will always remember that he told me was,” Sister Arnold, people just do not
understand love”. I knew just what he was referring to. And he also told me “wherever
I go know that, I have a pastor and that he was my pastor”.
have no idea just what that meant to me and what the processing of counseling
with others with problems help me to a healing. This might be considered faithful
over a few things and to me it was great things in the Lord, as well as God doing
a tremendous work with in my brokenness and how the Lord healed me during that
shall never forget how God used those wonderful people to help me, as well and
the work he did in those I was praying with.
Something I realized while going
though this processing in my life , as I was faithful over the few things that
were given to me, what took place was this wonderful understanding, I was being
made ruler over the things that had be down and discouraged . So true it was,
as I was faithful in the few things God made me to rule over what was taking me
down, God gave me the power to overcome. Praise the Lord for this
understanding! Did you
get that pearl I just shared
with you? By us giving out of our need and being faithful over what God has
given each of us to do, that God will cause us to rule over anything that may
come against us? That is a real true revelation.
you beginning to see more clearly as to what being faithful over a few things mean?
is a work out there when going to a public place you need to realize that
people are watching as to how you are coping and acting towards just everyday
people shopping in a store. Are you doing as Jesus would do?
can’t image the Lord walking in a store and treating anyone badly or rude. What
I visualize Him doing is, greeting each person He comes in contact with. So now
how about you how are you showing forth His love out there in the world?
if you reacted badly towards a person that is having some real bad issues and
here you are suppose to be the light in the world to all around you and your
treating that poor soul badly? Do you know how God is looking at you at your
mean or hateful ways? Talk about getting into trouble with the Lord that is a
sure way to get in to reaping what you are sewing.
but the people want to be walking about with great authority and filled with
the power of God and wanting to be ruler over many things. This is not going to
happen not until the people of God realize that God made it clear to be faithful
over a few things, meaning being a caring
loving child of God manifesting the spirit of the Lord each and every day in
all conditions, family , friends, people in all walks of life .
have found it to be a real blessing to write this message what a delight it is
to know and to understand that all God is expecting out of any of us is to be
faithful over all the few things.
In God there is no little or few things to Him
it’s all important and if it is important to the Lord, then it is important to
me and should be to all His people.
