Then the king said to Haman, “Hurry, take the robe and the horse, as you have suggested, and do so for Mordecai the Jew who sits within the king’s gate! Leave nothing undone of all that you have spoken.” So Haman took the robe and the horse, arrayed Mordecai and led him on horseback through the city square, and proclaimed before him, “Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights to honor!”
Esther 6:10-11 NKJV
How does it feel when you are have done your best and don’t get noticed by your boss, or your children, or even your parents I’m sure it’s frustrating. Mordecai also did something awesome, but it was as if it was not even noticed as if the king didn’t care that he saved his life.
The good news is that even though the king had forgotten, God did not forget. His reward came. That is the same for us, God never forgets, He can work on our behalf and cause men to bless us, including men who have forgotten about us or men who want to shame us.
Do not give up going to church, do not give up your ministry, do not give up on your children.
Do not give up on your marriage, do not give up on helping people.
Do not Give up on God.
God is watching you and He sees your good works; He sees the love you are showing.
There is a law of seedtime and harvest, every good thing you do God will reward you. There is a book with all your service written in it, and God will surprise you in this life and in the life to come. God will not forget your labour of love (Hebrew 6:10)
May this be an encouragement to you
Today I choose to remember that the Lord will not forget acts of service. I believe that He can bring them to light in His perfect time to bless me and further His plans and purposes.
I thank You that You are God who knows everything I have done. All the good I do. I thank You that You will not forget and that You have it all recorded and that You will bless me at the right time.
Help me to be patient instead of feeling discouraged. You said You will not forget our labour of love and that every worker gets paid. I know my payment is coming.
Thank You that You will bless me beyond measure for my service to You, so I will not give up.
In Jesus name
