I love blogging. I really do. I try to be faithful about blogging on Wednesdays and Thursday. Wednesdays are ‘WORD FILLED WEDNESDAY’ , where God’s word (no famous quotes or other literature — only the beautiful word of our Father) is shared through photo’s & a Bible verse! Thursday’s are “THANKFL THURSDAY”, where we blog about what we are thankful for.
The past week has been really busy. There’s been graduations. I had my grandchildren here for a couple days. It’s been busy at work. I’ve been helping Al do some landscaping. We’ve had trophy orders to get done. You know. Life is busy! As a result, I fell off my system and missed last weeks Thankful Thursday. I thought I’d get back on track this week. But I thought today was Wednesday. I realize it is Thursday. So I’m going to combine the two days.
I am thankful for how the Holy Spirit teaches us and speaks to us. I have been really blessed the past two days as I’ve spent time in the Word. I am so thankful for the Word. This morning the Lord lead me to Matthew 24:45-46(NASB). Jesus had been telling his disciples about what the world would look like before He came back again. Then Jesus asked, “Who is the faithful and sensible servant whom the master will find feeding his household food at the proper time?” Jesus then said, “Blessed is that servant whom his master finds so doing when he comes.”
Well, I want to be found faithful. I want to be found sensible. This is how Webster defines sensible and faithful:
sensible: having, using, or showing good sense or sound judgment; cognizant; keenly aware.
faithful: thorough in the performance of duty; a faithful worker; true to one’s word, promise, vows, etc.; steady in allegiance or affection; loyal; constant; reliable
I started asking the Lord, “WHO is my household? WHAT is the food I’m supposed to be feeding them? WHEN is the proper time to be feeding them?”
And I realized that during these end times that we are living in, when we wonder “….what are we supposed to be DOING????……”, the Bible tells us, “do not neglect your spiritual gifts……” (1Timothy 4:14), that we are just supposed to be taking care of our ‘households’. Each one of us has a ‘household’. Our household probably consists of our families, our jobs, our interests, what we spend our time on. So my prayer today is that when Jesus comes back, He will find each one of us being sensible. Being faithful. And feeding our households food at the proper time. I realize we need to be asking the Lord to show us what food He would have us feed our household and when the proper time is. We need Him to show us. And He will. He just wants us to ask Him and to trust Him. Just like God told Noah what he needed to build the ark (gopher wood and tar), and He told Noah the exact dimensions of the Ark (Genesis 6:14-16), and then waited patiently while Noah built it (1Peter 3:30)….. well today we should be asking God for instructions. Then we should listen and obey. Because there is a flood of the Holy Spirit coming! God is waiting patiently for us to finish building our ‘arks’. Let Him find us being faithful and sensible. Because we will be blessed! SWEET!
