|God works in the lives of those who work for Him.|
On a sweltering hot day, a group of railroad workers were diligently repairing a railroad track. Work was going smoothly when an unexpected interruption arrived; a train car stopped near them and out walked the President of the railroad. Surprise was written over many of the workers faces which then only intensified as the President called one of them to have lunch with him. The worker smiled and followed the President into the train leaving the other workers in wonder. A few hours later out stepped the worker, shaking hands with the President and giving a hearty farewell. Joining his fellow workers they asked why he had received such a wonderful opportunity?
He responded: "The President and I are good friends, we both began working for the railroad at the same time over twenty five years ago."
"That doesn’t make sense, why is he the President of the railroad and you are out here working with us?" They asked.
"Well it’s like this" He said, "Twenty five years ago I went to work for $2 an hour while he went to work for the railroad."
Who are you working for? Are you working for God, yourself, or the world? Have you placed all your desires and the desires of the world at God's altar? Are you willing to sacrifice everything you know and want for Him? Only when we work for Him in every act and thought can we achieve true joy through His amazing Grace.
