Do Your Best

Do your best to bring back some of the fruit of the land. Numbers 13:20

Do your best and trust God with the rest. Your best in the hands of your Heavenly Father is all He needs to get done what’s needed. He can bless less than your best, but normally His favor rests on your best efforts. His blessing stays with those who remain trustworthy stewards of their time, gifts and skills. As you are faithful with what you have, the Lord may very well expand your capacity. Excellent stewardship is a low risk investment with a high return probability.

Are you in school? If so, do your best in your studies, so you develop a disciplined mind,  managing well your parent’s money. Are you a writer? If so, do your best to write when you don’t feel like writing,  trusting you can break through any writer’s block. Are your parents alive? If so, seek out a relationship of love and honor. Children who care for their parents model for their children how to become compassionate caregivers. Do your best and trust God with the rest.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

Commit your free time to becoming better at what you are called to be and do. Perhaps you take an online class that is a survey of the Old or New Testaments. Teach or lead, so you are more accountable to model what you tell others to do. Maybe you serve the mentally challenged and the physically handicapped in ways that make them feel special and beloved by their Heavenly Father. Do your best with the time you have and trust God with the rest that needs to get done.

Most of all concentrate on being your very best for Christ. In your thoughts, think on things that are lovely, wholesome, true, noble and without shame. With your eyes, watch images that feed your spirit with good and starve your flesh from bad. Read books and experience films that ignite your imagination with big God ideas  that deepen your love for humanity. Listen to music that lifts your spirits and leads your spirit in worship. Do your best to become His very best!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6, NKJV

 

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I am committed to do my best and to trust You with the rest.
