Labor in Vain

Have you ever felt like your labor for the Lord has been in vain (useless or having no effect)?

You have went to those the Lord has sent you to, you have prayed for many things, many people yet you see no results. Like King Solomon, you feel like him when he penned these words "Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity" (Eccl 1 v 2).

Yet you continue to labor on for the Lord; maybe the place you are called to labor is hidden from others' eyes yet you know the Lord has called you there. Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, you labor and see few, if any results. Although you may become discouraged, the Lord gives you strength and grace to keep on going. You certainly would like to see some feedback, some results of your work for him, yet none is forthcoming.

Cheer up because the Lord says, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." (1 Corinthians 15 v 58). He goes on to say in Hebrews 6 v 10 "For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister".

My prayer is that the Lord would give each of you an abundant harvest for your labors for him.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
