Sport teams spend endless hours both in practice and in competition. Why do they work so hard? To be the best, to conquer, to succeed and to celebrate progress.
The Old Testament festivals were celebrations of thankfulness to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for His provision and protection . They were preceded by WORK …followed by SUCCESS and celebrated with GRATITUDE to God.
“…honor the Lord your God at the place he chooses, for it is he who blesses you with bountiful harvests and gives you success in all your work.” Deuteronomy 16:15
In heaven’s get-it-right dictionary “W” does come before “S” and they are both followed by “G”. At this time of year the work we have done renders hearts filled with gratefulness. We celebrate the successful and bountiful harvest recognizing that it was poured out on us by our Heavenly Father.
PRAYER: I thank you for giving me the strength to work hard at the tasks before me. Every success I lay before you as a sacrifice in celebration of your provision, protection and the many blessings you have poured out on me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
WORK HARD, EXPERIENCE SUCCESS AND...
GIVE GOD THE GLORY!
