It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. Luke 12:43-44 (NIV)
I know that you are coming back. I know that the time is short one way or another. Very soon you will return to this earth or I will come to live forever in heaven with you. There is no time to sit around. There is no reason to become complacent. There is no opportunity to be laid back and lazy. I want to be busy doing all that you have given me to do for you. I want to make the most of every second. I want to use every minute. There is not a day that will go by that I don’t want to be busy serving you. I don’t want to be distracted. I won’t allow myself to be diverted. I want to remain on course. I want to keep in step. I want to follow you to where you lead me. I want to do all that you ask of me. That is very good.
I know that you have richly blessed my life. You have given me gifts, and talents and abilities and resources that all can be used for you. I know that much will be expected of me because so much has been given to me. I don’t want anything to go to waste. I don’t want anything to be left unused. I want to do your will and walk in your ways. I want to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans. So, I am emphatically and enthusiastically saying to you now that everything I am and everything that I have is completely at your disposal. I am ready for your use. That is very good.
When you return to this earth or I come to live in heaven with you, I want to be found faithful in your sight. I want to hear that I have been your good and faithful servant. I know that I will need your help. I will need your strength. I will need your power. I can do nothing apart from you. So, I will rely on you every step of my life. I will rely on you to work in and through me. I will rely on your Holy spirit to give me all that I will need to live my life fully and completely for you. I ask that you will use me. Set me on fire to passionately love, follow and serve you on every day of my life. That I will do, you can be certain of that.
Lord, I will faithfully follow and serve you as I expectantly await your return. I want to be faithful in doing all that you have given me to do. I don’t want to waste a second. I want to use every minute to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. Amen
