Matthew 25:21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.
We all want to hear that we’ve done a good job. I believe it’s part of how we were created. But how much more does it encourage us when God himself says, “well done my faithful child.”
I’m not sure if God will speak to me audibly in this way, but I do get fulfilled in my spirit when I’ve been obedient with the little tasks God has assigned to me over the years. And as I’ve been faithful, it has proven true that he’s given more. With more responsibility I’ve also experienced more abundance of joy.
What small thing has God entrusted you with today? Follow through and experience the joy that comes from the Lord telling you, “well done!”
Prayer: Lord, help me to be trustworthy with the things you set before me. I want to bring glory to your name in all I do today. Amen.
