Devotion for Sunday, November 14, 2021

“Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to work in quiet fashion and eat their own bread.  But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary of doing good” (2 Thessalonians 3:12-13).

Do not grow weary of doing good!  In our hurried world we are pressured to move on to the next thing.  The wicked one is wearing you down.  Keep on doing what the Lord gives you to do.  Do not tire of what the Lord would have you do.  Work steadily and quietly according to what the Lord has given you to do and be satisfied with His presence and purpose in Your life.

Lord, You know where I am doing what You would have me do and where I am listening to the world.  Guide me away from the chatter of this world and into Your presence.  Guide me in Your goodness so that I would hold fast to Your Word and the admonitions You give me.  Help me do the work You give me to do and to quietly press on doing those things which are right in the Father’s sight.

Holy Spirit, You know me better than I know myself.  You know where I struggle and where I am not compliant with what You are saying.  Lead me Lord in order that I would eat by the work of my hand and live by the Word from Your mouth.  Let me not be caught up by this world, but by You who is my guide and strength.  Keep me steadfast and keep me from growing weary in the doing of good.  Amen.
