Hebrews 6:10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.

The other day I asked my 12 year old if he thought I was making a difference in the world. He looked at me as if I had asked an obvious question with a certain answer at least from his perspective. He said, “Yes daddy. You help people to know God and explain stuff to them so they can understand.” That moment of clarity meant a lot coming from my son.

Do you ever wonder if what you do matters? I do. I’ve seen so many people touched by the Gospel. Some have stayed. Some have strayed. I’ve seen so many people blessed through ministry. Some went back to life as usual. Some came back to say thank you. But what keeps me going is the hope that God sees what I’m doing.

A prophetess shared with me the other day that “the prayers and the seeds of service you sowed in 2006 are ready to manifest. It’s been nine years and it’s time for God to deliver on his promises. He has not forgotten!”

When you are in a place of uncertainty and you’re not sure that what you do matters, remember this:

  1. God is not unjust. Meaning this. When he sees you doing right he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. We are so quick to talk about God’s judgment and him catching us doing something wrong but I think God is more excited about seeing us do something good.
  1. He will not forget your work or the love you have shown him in helping his people. Jesus said that when we help or love the least of these we are in essence doing it for him. Only what you do for Christ will last. It matters when you help the less fortunate. God will pay back those who lend to the poor! It’s coming back to you!
  1. God sees you when you continue to help those in need. Don’t stop doing what you’re doing even if people don’t come back to say thank you. Don’t stop your good deeds because God sees you and your life matters!

Dear God,

Thank you for reminding me that my life matters and you are going to reward me if I don’t give up. My anchor holds and grips the solid rock. That rock is Jesus everything I do I do for him who first loved me. Keep me focused on what is most important-loving you and loving more people.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
