2 Ki 3-4; Ecc. 8

Sometimes surrendering to God looks like plain ol’ hard work. Seeking God’s help, Jehoshaphat was told to pick up a shovel and dig some ditches.

He could have complained. “But… I just want God to GIVE me water!”

And God came through! The blessings followed the obedience. And the obedience looked like… work!

Serving God is rarely glamorous. Missions trips are glamorous; the day to day ministry is a lot of hard work. We are catching only a small glimpse of the work of ministry.

“Help me, God! Bless me!”

God says, “Okay. Will do. Pick up a shovel…”
