 Scripture:  “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasure” (Job 36:11 KJV)                 

I want to specially welcome you to yet another winning day. The psalmist wrote something, that every one of us should always reckon with at every counting moment of our life, and it reads, “I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me”  Psalm 3:5,

You Owe Him Everything

Acknowledging the goodness of God is our daily responsibility, He formed us to daily give him praise. He is the reason you are living. The topic reads, “Serving God and the interest of His Kingdom pays you Highly ”.  Every man was predestined for service, you were sent here to service humanity, Earth is not our home, you were purposed in God to come here and to advance His kingdom here on earth.

You Were Redeemed For Service

And as the redeemed you belong to God’s kingdom on the earth, this kingdom is not a physical realm, we are here momentarily, our service and obedience are not to man but to the invisible and sovereign God.

He lives in eternity where we all will at last return; to our eternal Home, so life isn’t about you, life is about God and His will, and finding the reason for life puts us on the right path. And our works in life ring a bell in eternity.

A young man came to Christ asking, “What shall I do that I may inherit eternal life”? and Jesus told him what to do, he responded saying, “all these I have done from my youth, but what lack I yet”   “Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, one thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shall have treasure in heaven: and come take up the cross, and follow me” (Mark 10:17-21 KJV)

Emulate The Selfless Life From Jesus

And the verse following it says, “And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possession” multitudes in life are out of track and as such render service to things, to man, gods and idols, and other forms of deity, demonism some even practice spiritism.

To the majority of these people, it is their strategy to achieve their craving for worldly riches, and to some others, they reverence and pay loyalty to them in the name of worship, in ignorance and without true knowledge of what they worship.

 The young man approached Jesus asking what to do, to make eternal life and even went further to ask what he lacked so that he might put it to work, and Jesus asked him to sacrifice his possession, for the good of others as a service to humanity,

Since it had to do with his worldly riches, he left unfulfilled and weighed down, it was hard for him to do, and this is the case with many Christians. They would rarely sacrifice or give up themselves for the sake of God’s work.

Service To God Means To Sacrifice

Service to God is all about sacrifice, it is all about giving your time, strength, and finances for the advancement of the Kingdom on earth.

 people often ask how can I be of service to God, also a lot of Christians are yet to come to terms with service to God as the channel to accessing the supernatural, no matter the area of need we can cause the hand of God to our direction by our stewardship in his house. No service pays you, as serving the Lord, He does not only pay you greatly, He would also go on to service every area of concern, in your family and business, and would prosper you.

Service To God Is Obedience To His Word

Our anchor scriptures say, “if they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and years in pleasures”, if you would dare to obey his word to serve him, riches and blessings will abound in your household.

Service to an idol, witchcraft and demonism are the antics and deception of the devil to rob you of the God-ordained riches in Christ meant for your glory.

Service To God Makes Your Life Glorious With Increase

The Bible says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that called us to glory and virtue” - 2 Pet1:3. All things have been given for your glorious life in Christ.

But something is crucial, God would have to prove your sincerity by your heart of service in the kingdom, that is why Matt. 6:33 says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and these things shall be added unto you”.

 All the things others seek to have by power and might and yet have not been able to get, God says He would give them to you, when you commit to serving Him, as a way of life.

Remember we don’t serve God for the things we would be blessed with, or just due to the material possession of the now, but He wants it to become our attitude, that was the lifestyle of Christ.

Serving God Is Living The Lifestyle Of Jesus

“the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up”,  the scripture also says, “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable” - 1Cor15:19

 We serve because we are redeemed and are begotten in God for a life of service in the body of Christ, Jesus served and was glorified, you too must serve if you so desire to see the same dimension of glory.

There Are Lots Of Ways To Serve In His Vineyard

Perhaps you might be asking but what area should I serve? You were saved to also save others, become a soul winner, and go after the lost souls with a passion for their salvation. Daniel 12:3 says, “ and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever”  those that win back the lost shall shine as stars forever”.

Every way of service to God pays, only look out for the area you have been gifted with and serve God there; it is not a waste of time but an investment into your life, and the destiny of your unborn generation. You are lifted.


Father, IJN: Thank you for the deep touch and revelation of your word in today’s devotional.

Father, IJN: Endue me with a passionate spirit for service in the kingdom.

Father, IJN: I ask for the spirit of fruitfulness, cause me to bear fruit both in the kingdom and towards man.

Father, IJN: Whatever that is working contrary to your command of fruitfulness and attitude in God I curse it, I decree it to melt as wax before the fire.


"Thou art worthy, oh Lord to receive glory and honour and power for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created"- Revelation 4:11


John 12:26,Mark 9:33, Deut. 13:4, Gal.5:13


“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”                                                                                  


This is the reason for our existence; service to God and humanity, in the end of our time in life, God will review our work life.
