10 Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave, there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom.
Do you find yourself coasting? What is keeping you from being your best for God? God does not have a design flaw my friends! You are part of His design; therefore, you are created for great and mighty things that point directly to Him and to advance His Kingdom! We must never forget that God does not operate productivity based on an assembly line. He does not manufacture copies – He is the MASTER of originality and perfection! So—why are you loafing? Ah—lies! It does not matter if you are cleaning toilets, changing diapers, or launching rockets into space, you have a God-sized purpose so do it well!
This verse in Ecclesiastes hit me like a ton of bricks this evening. This verse resembles Colossians 3:17 which says, “And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. I love how verses complement each other. Let’s look at these verses combined for the purpose of application…for whatever you do, do it well and as a representative of the Lord Jesus! WHOA! Now that should give you purpose. You do not need any other book to find the meaning of life. The Word clearly gives hope in salvation and purpose in life.
Some of you might be in a season of change, new direction, difficulty, and refiner’s fire. Yet, wherever you are and whatever you are doing—do it well and do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus! Please know that you are called for greatness. How do I know? Jesus pronounced in Matthew 28:19 that we should “go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” I would definitely say that this responsibility makes you special because you have the opportunity to lead someone to the one and only Redeemer and Savior of the world – so do it well and do your best!
Question: What is holding you back from unleashing the power of the Holy Spirit in your life? Don’t bridle the Spirit; give up the control and let Him move you!
