Counterproductive

June 9, 2020

Word of the day: 17 And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands—yes, validate and build it. Psalm 90:17 AMPC

Meditation: What are you doing to be productive? Take time to meditate on the goals set on your heart by God and pray about those goals.

Discussion Board: I hear a lot that tomorrow is never guaranteed to us. I also listen and comprehend others tell me, “you have a lot of years ahead of you. You are young and have nothing to worry about.” These can be very conflicting because we shouldn’t worry about tomorrow, but it’s not guaranteed to us either. How do you handle that? Be productive. God wants us to be productive in his work, for humanity, for yourself, for him. Serve your time; give your time. God lays specific ideas on our heart to chase. He will provide you with those tools if you pursue it; otherwise, it is counterproductive. God works for us to have a better life. Listening to your heart and knowing if God has open doors opportunities for you or not is essential. Our accomplishments are because of God.

Takeaway: Go for what is in your heart. God will let you know if it is right or wrong. That is being productive. What are your takeaways?

Prayer: Father, thank you for our fellowship. I pray for our hearts and our minds. There is so much stored there; it is a lot to act because of its ideas. Give us the strength and courage to sort it out and work at it for you to recognize if it is an open door opportunity. Thank you for your love. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
