God has a plan for you and for me. "For I know the plans I have for you . . . . ." (Jeremiah 29:11). He has a work He wants each of us to accomplish here on earth. I have been doing a little soul-searching - Am I completing the work God gave me to do? Jesus did. "I have brought You glory on earth by completing the work You gave me to do," (John 17:4).
I am asking myself, "What is my work here on earth? Am I completing it? Is teaching Sunday School and Bible studies my work or have I missed the boat?" My desire is to bring glory to God so I need to complete the work He has for me. I need to follow His plan. Do a little soul-searching and ask yourself similar questions about your work. Is it His work, His plan for you?
One day I want to hear those words, "Well done, good and faithful servant" (Matthew 25:21). If we have sought out and followed God's plan, completed His work (and not our own), then those words will be spoken over us. Aah! music to our ears!
