Topic: ENGAGE YOUR HANDS! #2
If the ants which seem so inconsequential and irrelevant in the scheme of things could be this orderly and productive, however, you have got no reason to be idle. God does not bless emptiness. The writer of Proverbs comments on this; “A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich” (10:4). God will only bless the works of your hand not the word of your mouth. So, get busy and expect God’s blessings. Glory to God! Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might!
In summary, ants are good teachers for us when it comes to avoiding laziness, indiscipline and sluggishness in our lives. Obviously, wisdom is with these little creatures and we have got to learn from their wisdom. Indeed hard work pays! There is the popular aphorism that says; “No pain no gain”.
There are some folks that are grace crazy. I never said grace is not good or important. As a matter of fact, I enjoy it often. However, you must know that grace does not work for idle, indolent, lazy and weak people. As a matter of fact, the grace of God is only available on the area of strength and not your weakness.
So, you have got to learn from the ants who understand times and seasons. The ant knows that there is a time when gathering won’t be possible, so it works very hard when it can. It also knows to store things up to prepare for the times when there will be no food. With this, “WE SHOULD BE MOTIVATED WITHIN TO DO THE NEEDFUL”. Praise God!
Prayer: Oh God, my Creator, give me wisdom to fulfill my purpose in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
