His Good Promise

"Your place of service may not be a big one, but it's an important one; and God put you there because you're the right person for the job right now. He wants to work through you to get some things accomplished for His glory, and He will do it if you will 'let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom' (Col. 3:16). No matter how difficult your place of ministry might be or how discouraging the situation, adopt the attitude of Peter, and God will do wonders for you: 'Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net' (Luke 5:5). That 'nevertheless' of obedient faith makes the difference between success and failure. You can trust in this truth: 'There has not failed one word of all His good promise' (1 Kings 8:56)."
