Set Out to Please Me

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self- righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time... ~1 Peter 5:6

When you give Me the desires of your heart and care about working unto Me, you won’t need and crave the recognition of others. It’s not easy to get to this place, but you must take the steps each day. If you set out to please Me, you won’t be able to help that others will take notice. They will see your efforts and they will recognize the quality of your work without you having to say a word regarding it. Just keep being diligent and faithful. It is what I think of you that matters the most. So do not concern yourself with being noticed… when the time is right I will exalt you and it will have much more meaning than if you tried to bring it upon yourself. Don’t give in or give up, maintain the right attitude and keep pressing forward doing what is right and good. My promises are sure.
