A Closed Bible is the Devil’s Workshop

It has been said that idle hands are the devil’s workshop, and idle hours breed wandering thoughts. Our God is a working God, and we must be his working servants.  All the saints of God must obey his commandments, labor in the Lord, and endure trials and persecutions. Christianity is not for the weak and the lazy, but for the strong and the courageous. God has more work for us to do than there are Christians to do it. A closed bible is the Devil’s workshop, and laziness is his tool of choice. So, be strong and of good courage, and do to work of God!

Wait Patiently Upon The Lord

We hope for what is unseen, and with perseverance we eagerly wait for it. We should never conclude that life’s deferments are God’s denials. Jesus died nearly 2,000 years ago, yet every saint of God waits patiently for his return. We are commanded to obey the gospel, but we must endure persecutions with forbearance, before our reward is assured. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen our heart, for the Lord is good to those who wait for Him. Blessed are they who wait upon the Lord, for they will soar upon wings like eagles. The best things in life are worth waiting for, because in our patience posses we our souls. So our eyes wait upon the Lord, until his tender mercy shines upon us. Let us hold on, hold fast, and hold out, and wait patiently upon the Lord.
