To All His Good and Faithful Servants

God's love and affirmation can come in my forms...

God speaks to us in many ways… Sometimes it is through Scripture. Occasionally through song. Or another person.

And sometimes, He just straight up talks to us. However– we have to be willing to listen.

Today’s post isn’t eloquent or hilarious or exceptionally creative. It is a loving word I received from Him during the last few moments of my sabbatical in Pine Mountain this past weekend.

The following are words that He wanted me to hear– but as I prayed over them, He wanted me to share His heart with you as well.

So this post is for all you who are doing His work, whether that is praying, blogging, living a Christian life in a secular world, ministry, raising a family in Christ, you name it. If you have been called to live a Christ-like life, then this message is from God FOR you…. To All His Good and Faithful Servants.

“Place Me first and foremost in all areas of your day. I promise I will give you the energy and strength to accomplish what I have planned for you. Rely on Me to do the hard work– your trust in Me is the ultimate remedy to avoid exhaustion, frustration and burn-out.

I love you for who are, NOT for what you do. Your love and obedience is all I ask of you. Receive My gifts of power and truth that I am giving to you. I will strengthen you for the journey ahead, My beloved and mighty warrior. 

Remember that a ‘successful day’ is NOT determined by what you cross off your to do list, but rather how much you keep in touch with Me. It’s not what you do, it’s ultimately about how you glorify Me. Your personal plans of earthly things to do will never be completely accomplished. But that’s ok, because it is My purpose for you that truly matters. The more you are in tune with Me, the more opportunities I will give you to bring Me glory. In turn, I will fill you up from the inside out, overflowing with love and motivation. 

Get plenty of rest by spending time in my presence. Remember that people are a priority, not things. Keep your eyes open for how I am moving  and when you can love on someone. 

You are doing a great job, My Beloved One. I adore how you yearn to please and worship Me. Just remember that this is a learning process and I am the Ultimate Teacher. Any mistakes you make along the way are fully covered by My Grace. Keep running towards Me, My Good and Faithful Servant!”

I don’t know about you… but I am going to hold this precious message very close to my heart. My prayer is that this message from Our Father has spoke to you– empowered and encouraged you wherever He has called you. Keep pressing forward, my friends. I believe in you… and more importantly, so does God. After all, Beloved, He calls you His Good and Faithful Servant.

Pressing Onward for His Glory,
SGK

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’” –Matthew 25:23

  1. Thank you!!! Thank you for being His messenger (o:
    I had to share this with a friend that called this morning ~ she has 4 small boys & was sounding a bit worn out …… I am praying she feels as refreshed & empowered as I do after reading your blog!!
    Thank you!!

    • I am so thankful that this spoke to you (and hopefully to your friend.) God is so great at giving us the words we need to hear!

    Hey Sharita,
    I can see that you gained so much from your weekend away with God, and it’s awesome! I love the line, “I will fill you from the inside out”… it seems to be His favorite way to work! I’m blessed by your sharing! Keep seeking Him… ~ Blessings, Amy

    • It was SUCH an incredible weekend. Amazing that He knows exactly what we need! I pray things are going well for you over at FullHerLife 🙂 Hugs to you my friend!

  3. Sharita,
    I’m jealous, jealous of your weekend away, and the words you came back with will resonate with many of us doers. I don’t want to be a doer. I spent so much of my life being an avoider. Then, I wanted to do, to cross things off, to help in big ways. I’m always reminding myself how much He adores me, just me.

    • Amen to that, Amy! There is such a fine line between being a doer, be-er, avoider etc… Fortunately God loves us and helps us work out that balance 🙂 Blessings to you!

  4. THANK YOU both, for listening and sharing. This is just what I needed to hear. 🙂

  5. Ok, I totally thought I commented, and then did not see it on here! GRR!

    Just caught up on the blog. LOVE this! What a blessing! Thanks for responding to the Holy Spirit’s prompting…love it when that happens! And it does take courage and being brave too! But I bet those you served were so blessed! Thankful for your giving heart. I really believe giving is part of healing….it has been for me anyways.

    Beautiful and practical words of encouragement.

  7. I know I do not have what it takes on my own! I need His strength and energy! Thank you for sharing his prayer with us!

    • You are very welcome– I always debate how much I should share– but out of sheer obedience, I thought I would throw this out there. Glad it blessed you. To the glory of God alone 🙂

  8. This post was a perfect read for me today! A friend and I just discussed David today and him being a good and faithful servant. 🙂 As always…thank you for your blog! It inspires me girlfriend!!

I'd love to hear from you. Comment here.
