TOPIC: SERVICE – A KEY TO THE BLESSING
SCRIPTURE: And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. Exodus 23:25.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Service is key to accessing the Blessing of the Lord.
Service to God is a major activator of the Blessing Covenant. Service is key to accessing the Blessing of the Lord.
This is confirmed in Exodus 23:25:
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
Serving God with all your heart this year is key to experiencing the Blessing of the LORD.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 says:
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Beloved, if your hand finds God’s work to do, do it with your energy. If you find yourself in the sanctuary to work for God, do the work with all your energy. Do the service of soul-winning with urgency.
Now, how are you expected to serve God? What is the kind of service that is acceptable to God?
1. Service must be done in sincerity (Joshua 24:14).
Serve in truth. Do not be fake; be real. Be genuine. Be authentic. Be sincere.
2. Service must be done in humility (Acts 20:18-19).
Service must be done without arrogance or pomposity. People who are not humble cannot serve God.
3. Service must be done in uprightness and godly fear.
You cannot be cheating at your place of work, lying stealing, smoking, drinking, womanizing or ‘manising’ and then claim to serve God.
Service must be done in uprightness for it to be acceptable to God and profitable to man.
Hebrews 12:28 says:
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
Make up your mind to serve God with all your heart to access the Blessing of God.
REMEMBER THIS: Service is key to accessing the Blessing of the Lord.
1. Make the service of God your priority this year.
2. Make up your mind to serve God acceptably.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to serve You acceptably, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Let service to God and His kingdom be the reason why you live. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Genesis 16-20.
“For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” Phil. 1:21. The meaning is, if it is not Christ, there is no use living. Life is worthless and meaningless without Christ.
May service to God distinguish you this year in Jesus’ Name.
