Do the work!

I Chron. 28:20  Then David continued, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work.  Don’t be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the LORD God, my God, is with you.  He will not fail or forsake you.  He will see to it that all the work related to the Temple of the LORD is finished correctly.

Do the work the Lord has given you to do.  Don’t be afraid of what others may think.  Don’t let the uncertainty of what may happen faze you.  Don’t let the size of the task bother you.  Don’t let the improbability of your ability to do the task bother you.  Don’t let the slowness of progress discourage you.  Don’t look at the task, look at the Lord, who gave you the task to do.

If you don’t know what work the Lord has for you to do, work anyways.  Do something.  No labor for the Lord is done in vain.  The Lord will make it clear to you if there is something that you need to be doing that you aren’t doing.  He may, or He may not, assign you to a specific task.  The Lord is with us not matter what we do if we do what we do for His glory and honor. 

Focus on Him.  Be strong and courageous and just get to work.  Let your heart feast on His power, majesty, and glory.  Feast on the knowledge that the Lord is with you.  The Lord will never leave you hanging.  He will never let you work on your own.  He will never leave you or forsake you.  There are no menial tasks in the Kingdom of God.  Do the very best you know how and the Lord will bless your work.

The Lord will make sure that the job He gives you to do will be finished correctly.  If you are a willing partner with Him, He guarantees your success.  The Lord never calls us to failure.  He will help us to do whatever it is He wants us to do, if we will do our part.  We are His hands and feet.  We are His channels of blessing to the world.  He has chosen YOU to not only serve Him, but to do it successfully.  You cannot fail if you are co-operating with the Lord.
