THE BLESSINGS OF SERVING GOD
Today’s devotion speaks of the blessings that come with serving the Lord. Serving God gives you a fulfilling life. Countless people serve, yet they miss the meaning of its blessings. They serve as if they are doing God a favor and it is a chore or burden. Serving God is a rich blessing. It is so tragic that many who do good works have never caught on to the true meaning of serving God. Today’s devotion speaks of the blessings of serving God, and is found in Job 36:11. Underline these deep and profound words.
“If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.”
Those who obey and serve the Lord will have a rich and meaningful life. They will spend their days in prosperity and their years will be rewarded with pleasures. The writer expounds on the richness that comes from serving God. On the other hand, he also writes about the penalty that comes from disobedience. You will find that in chapter twelve. We can say, “Oh, the joys that come to those who serve to the glory of God.” What a blessing it is, to be used by Him. May you find great delight in serving God. Take the time, today, to renew your commitment to serve Him for the rest of your life regardless of the heartaches and disappointments that may come. It will all be worth it at the end. I pray you will be able to say, “I am thankful that God has granted to me the opportunity to be a part of His family. “
Job 36:11 (KJV)
