Oh Lord, I pray that people will understand the importance of doing what You say, no matter if it entails work from our end. I know in life that all things are not given over to me or others on a silver platter, but we have to work to achieve things as well. The same I’ve learned from You. There are things that You have called me to do, and only by doing these things have I gained a deeper and richer knowledge of Your Word. It took making time for You each day, and opening and studying the Bible a couple hours each time. Then, my eyes were fully opened to doing Your will and not my own. Even my passion for going on the streets and doing evangelism didn’t come to fruition until I made it a weekly occurrence. Then, the Holy Spirit came alive in me and I was able to see many souls be saved and come to You. Even people were healed left and right, just through praying for them. Some of these healing came later on, while others were on the spot. For this reason, I know that not everything happens in our time, but Yours. You are the author of our healing, so I leave it up to You when this will fully come to pass in my life and others I pray for. One thing I know is that I do not need to have recognition for things I do for You. I would actually hope that things were done in a way that people would run to You and not me. I am only Your servant, and my desire, Lord, is to only lead people to know You, Jesus, as their personal Savior. I need no gifts or money from people while I am out and about doing Your work. Instead, people should be honoring You with their gifts, not people. Yes, Lord, we are to come to You in worship and praise, not man. We do this while delivering up to You our whole hearts to serve and to know You better each day. My gifts are heavenly, not from this earth. What You do for me brings me joy and peace that lasts. I love You. Amen.
