Good day Saints, The Word for today is, “Do you have a mind to work?” Not just any work, but to work for the Lord and to be used in whatever capacity the Lord may need you!
Neh 4:6 says, “So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.”
Notice that the people accomplished much because of a right mindset. Isn’t it interesting that the scripture says they had a mind to work? Why didn’t it say they had strong hands to work, many people to work, or many resources for the work?
Why the mind? Because if your mind is stayed on the Lord, and you love him with all your heart, soul, and mind according to Matt 22:37, everything else will follow.
The worlds mindset of me, myself, and I is not the Christlike mindset. There is a balance in all things of course, but the question is, “Do you have the mind of Christ” according to Phil 2:4-5?
Christ once said at an early age in Luke 2:49, ” I must be about my Father’s business.” He certainly had the mind to please the Father in heaven!
If we are to be victorious in our vision and labor for the Lord, we must have the same mindset of unity, love, faith, servitude and above all, a mind to work!
This is how we achieve and do great things for the Lord! God bless, Pastor Quinn
