What are You Doing Right Now?

Keep about your work that God has given you. Do not flinch because the lion roars; do not stop to stone the devil’s dogs; do not fool away your time chasing the devil’s rabbits. Do your work. Let liars lie, let corporations resolve, let the devil do his worst; but see to it that nothing hinders you from fulfilling the work that GOD has given you. He has not commanded you to get rich. He has never bidden you defended you character. He has not set you at work to contradict falsehood about yourself which Satan and his servants may start to peddle. If you do those things, you will do nothing else; you will be at work for yourself and not for the LORD. Keep at your work. Let your aim be as steady as a star. You may be assaulted, wronged, insulted, slandered, wounded and rejected of men. But see to it with steadfast determination, with unfaltering zeal, that you pursue the great purpose of your life and object of your being until at last you can say, “I have finished the work which Thou gavest me to do.” ­—Pastor Matt M. Hoekstra

While the world runs for cover, we have work to do.

And wash your hands.

  1. Bless you, Jay. Arise and shine NOW! I thought about John G Lake and the germs dying in his hand. We are rooted in an eternal HOPE and HIS NAME IS JESUS! What did He say? that no plague shall come near our dwelling. That we shall lay hands on the sick and they will recover. Are we here to hide or to do what our Father shows us and tells us? Arise and shine for our Light is come and He is Jesus!!!


  2. Terrific! Thanks for the reminder on staying focused and what that focus should be. I print out many of your posts/quotes and tack them up in my office. Lots of my staff have stopped to read and comment, usually positive, even if they aren’t believers.
