KEEP WORKING IT

One hard thing to stop in the world is a freight train that has gained momentum and is racing down the tracks. Such trains carry thousands of tons along their hundreds of carriages with such force and power that they will crash anything in the way. However that kind of train doesn’t begin at such speed. They will start so slow that it is almost a joke to think that the thing would go anywhere. The first part of the journey is hard because of the enormous weight being pulled in the carriages. The captain stays the course and keeps the thing going through the tough stages until a time when the train has gained enough momentum to be sustained and propelled forth. At the end of the journey, you realise that the captain had to push through the initial stages until the point of great speed.

In the same way, you may not be moving at the speed of your choice. You may even know for a fact that where you are is not your destination. The results you are currently getting may be far from what you desire and the things you are doing obviously below the standards of you capacity. However you must keep working at your thing until it gets to the place you desire. Refuse to give up or give in. Keep your hands on the plough till the job is done. It takes time and it takes work. Give it time and work, then you will certainly see the fruition of that vision.

SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 9:57-62 Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.” And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, I choose to keep my hands on the plough to get the job done. Your Spirit causes me to will and do according to your good pleasure. I believe with such an assurance, I will thrive. Amen
