Daily Devotional – 1/16/15 “Are you dependable?”

Are you dependable? Can you be counted on? When you are invited, can you be counted in the number? When something is planned, can you be penciled in? Are you reliable? Are you trustworthy? If God had to pick someone to be tested, could He choose you? Would your faith withstand the test? Would you be like Job and make it through? Even after friends walk off after a few days, would you stay? When your family can no longer hang in there with you, will you still stay? When folk holler at you to give up because it’s no longer worth it to them, will you still stay? Can God depend on you? I find it strange that as Saints of God being in God, walking in this Christian way of life; we are all for the bless part of righteous living yet we throw in the towel at the first sign of trouble. I mean, we are all in the ship with God when the weather is good; the sun is shining and the cool air is blowing but baby as soon as the storm hits, the boat starts rocking, the water begins hitting against the side of the boat and it seems like we are about to sink; we start looking for a way out. Yea, when times are good we barely seek God, rarely talk to Him and don’t even look for us to come to worship service but let financial trouble hit, sickness start attacking our body or a close family member, child start acting crazy, marriage get in trouble or hell creep in your home; can’t nobody in the house beat you praying.

Why can’t God get the same dependability from us in and out of trouble? Isn’t He worth it? Doesn’t He come see about us in and out of trouble? Isn’t He dependable? When we call Him, doesn’t He come? When we seek Him, can He not be found? Yet God is still saying today like Jesus said to the disciples in Matthew 9:37, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.” Don’t you get it? There are so many among us that are sick, heavy with burdens, depressed, suicidal, addicted to whatever, going through things in their own homes, dealing with things on their jobs and this is in the church; God needs dependable people who are willing to work for Him to help His people. There are more Saints suffering than sinners because sinners are living in their sins yet Saints are trying to cover theirs up. It’s time out y’all. More Saints are going to hell, more Saints are being used by the enemy and more of them are in the church doing it! This has got to stop. God needs dependable folk who are willing to do His will and He needs us now. Are you dependable? Can you be counted on? Can God depend on you? If you have to think about the answer to these questions, right now is a good time to change.
