God has not forgotten your labor of love:
your seed has bloomed!
To those who have been steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, little did you know that all you were doing and have done for the Lord was a seed being planted in the ground. You have been cultivating and nurturing by your faithfulness and dedication to god and his work! All the while, you thought that your labor was in van, but God saw it and has not forgotten your labor of love! Even while the enemy attacked and came against you, you continued to be diligent and patient in waiting for the Lord.
You were not selfish with others needs and complained little. Although you were in lack yourself, you gave to others from the abundance of your heart. You gave when you did not have to give. You gave because it was right to give and to love because you knew that it pleased the Lord!
You have been praying and interceding for others and you have been working tirelessly in the fields to win the lost souls to Christ. Some of you even using means and resources to take his gospel around the world.
Now the Lord says since you have a heart after his own heart, since you have such a zeal for the work and the word of God, since you have compassion and love to please the master at all cost, even when you are done wrong you rise above it to please him.
Since you desire to do what is right even when no one else can see you, you were planting a seed of unselfish love and devotion to the lord and his work. The lord says that I have watered and increased this seed and now every area of your life will be blessed and lacking nothing; the time is now for you to see the manifestation. Your seed has bloomed!!!
“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them” Hebrews 6:10 (NIV).
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye a, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the lord” 1 Corinthians 15:58 (NJV).
