Have a servant's heart!

Matthew 24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

We are called to be servants, are we not? Well, what does a servant do? He (or she) carries out the will of his master. A servant doesn't tell his master what to do — he performs whatever tasks the master requests of him. A servant doesn't choose what days or times it's most convenient to serve his master. A servant's function is simply to follow and obey his master’s instructions. A servant does not develop a vision for the master either. The master is the one with the vision — and he wants his servants to be ready and available to carry out that vision and bring it to fruition.

How can we experience fulfillment in our lives? Simply by serving our Master — our Heavenly Father. The world encourages us to seek counterfeit fulfillment — power success — prosperity. The more of these things we gain, the more our flesh wants more. It is our sinful human nature. We will never find true fulfillment when we seek these things.

We must become servants if we want to experience true fulfillment. We need to become lowly, meek and humble. As God's servants we should have no other agenda, except to do His will. When we become faithful to do His will, then He will fulfill the aspirations He desires for us in our lives… and even those things we desire!

As God's faithful servant — we share in His success, we have direct access to His power and wealth and are able to walk in His authority! Let’s get our hearts in servant mode and watch how God brings about all the things we need and want.

    As my family and I have been going through challenging times, I found myself crying out to jesus for some words of acknowledgement or even advise. As I lay in bed I kept repeating "servants heart." I am not sure what to make of this as I am a new Christian. After googling and reading this. I am still confused

    Having a servants heart is one of the greatest things we can accomplish in this life. A servants heart means we will give of ourselves even when we may feel like there is nothing to give to someone else. God can use us to accomplish many things in other people's life if we can learn to give of our time, love, money and words and expect nothing in return. I don't know what you are going through, but remember that God is always there, always listening, and always answering. Just continue to trust in Him and seek his will for your life and I know he will lead you. Be blessed and continue to grow in your love for Jesus.
