GOD’S WORK

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Isaiah 53:10-12

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
John 9:4
 
Work hard by spending a lot of time on the church.

When an activity consumes just a few minutes of your time in a week, it cannot be called your “work”. For instance, I drive my car for a few minutes every day but my work is not “driving” per se. It is something that I do on my way to work.

However, if driving a car, for example a taxi, were to become my work, I would not spend less than eight hours a day driving. Then, to me, driving would have become work!

You cannot claim to be doing the “work” of the ministry until it actually consumes a reasonable amount of time in your week.

If waiting on God, catching the anointing, catching revelation and receiving guidance from the Holy Spirit does not take up many hours and days of your week, then you are not working yet. For a minister of the gospel, praying and waiting on God must take up many hours. If it is work it will take up your time. When you were not a pastor building a large church, you could afford to spend a few minutes catching the anointing. You could afford to spend twenty minutes receiving a revelation from the Word. But now that you are a serious professional mega church builder, you need to spend several hours and days waiting on the Lord!

As you do the work of God, you will expend your energy and money. When you begin to feel tired, just remember it is a sign that you are really working.
