Some of you don't realize how pleased the Lord is with you. You're just trudging along and living your life for Him as you go about your business to get others to get on board. And sometimes you don't think you're doing enough for God. I'm here to tell you that, He is pleased. He is pleased with the people who didn't turn their backs when the going got "good" and the storm and battle were over.
News flash. The battle is never over and the fat lady never sings ok? That means we have to always strive to do more, be more, and let others see God's light in us. Is it easy? You know my answer to that. No, it's not, but still we rise. 1 Thessalonians 4 speaks to living a life for Christ and it can indeed be a full, happy, and joyous life. God will ensure you experience those things. Know that. So, just in case you think no one understands your struggle, because you seem to be the only one standing for God. You're not the only one. There are people around you who are standing for Him too and guess what? They are also routing for you. People see what you're doing and many more will start to take notice. Stay encouraged and keep moving for the Lord. He sees you and He's pleased that you are living for Him. "Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does..." (Ephesians 6:7/8).
