CUPBEARER TO THE KING

READ
Nehemiah 2:1-8


Why is your face sad?...what do you request?
Nehemiah 2:2-4

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Psalm 117-139
1 Corinthians 13

One of my favorite bible passages that applies to work is Nehemiah 1-2. King Artaxerxes' employee-Nehemiah had been such an exemplary worker that the king wanted to honor him by helping him when he was sad that Jerusalem was still in ruins. He asked Nehemiah, “Why is your face sad?...What do you request?”(2:2-4). He wasn’t just any worker for the king, he was the cupbearer, the man who tested the king’s drink to protect him from being poisoned. In order to have earned such a position, he apparently worked hard and honored God in everything he did. And the king granted his requests.
God cares about the way we work. Colossians 2:23 tells us “What ever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.”We can follow Nehemiah’s example in these ways:Be such a competent and trusted worker that God is honored (Nehemiah 1:11—2:6). Care passionately about others and what’s important to them. Take action occasionally, even risky action, to honour what’s important to God and to fellow believers(2:3-6).
When we honor God in work, our employers may notice. But even if they don’t our heart’s desire and purpose should be to honor the one we really serve - the Lord our God (Colossians 3:17-23)- Randy Kilgore
O Lord, May the way I serve tell Your story. I want to bring You all the glory in my work,
at home, and everywhere I go, fill me and use to bless others and honor You today.


God honors faith because faith honors God.

ANY QUERY FROM SATAN?
Open Heavens

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

ANY QUERY FROM SATAN?

A divine midwife must be in control of his or her choices and ensure that they are God-centred and not self-centred. They must be ready to take decisions even when it hurts them. They must also be prepared to respond to Satans queries.

THE GREAT DELIVERER

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

THE GREAT DELIVERER

God is great but He humbles Himself to the level of His children to deliver them. The one who will deliver you must be stronger than the enemy holding you captive. The reason He is able to deliver is because He is stronger than all your enemies put together. This is why in Psalm 24:7-10, He is called the Lord...More
