SERVING IN VAIN
There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: *Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. Ecclesiastes 9:14-15 He served in vain. You can serve in vain. The good you are doing currently may result in no remembrance. Our generation are loaded with discouraged men and women who would have helped so many others but are discouraged to do it. They didn’t do it because of some negative experience they had in time past or how other good doers are been treated in their community.
Some men used their techniques, strategies and wisdom to create solution to a major problem and were not celebrated or even remembered to be honoured; this issue has caused reduction in number of trail blazers and destiny helpers in human society.
The fact is that you can serve in vain religiously and in humanitarian efforts. Doing great things should qualify you for great placement and honour but if you used your own strategies to bail others out and yet you are forgotten then there is a problem somewhere.
If you have served God and humanity and yet your position hasn’t changed for the better, you haven’t been brought to honour then their is a problem, you need to tackle it. It is never the fault of those that didn’t remembered you but the forces against your destiny, so it’s a spiritual battle. You will notice that the moment you win the battle the same person (or people) that refused to remembered you will turn back to remember you themselves. I will like to share an experience, which I was opportune to witness.
He’s a shepherd over a church who is also business man, he made his wife through his business, which the wife was his personal assistance on that job. Before long their family were enrich with a befitting house and fleet of cars. Somehow the wife left him and overrule their joint bank account, took the largest share of the company and took to her heel, she also withdrawn all her children from their father at about 25years of marriage. The children didn’t remember their father; they were enjoying their lives across the Atlantic. The man’s business crumble totally after he wallowed in abject poverty for twelve years, he was down with stroke and paralysis and after one year of chronic pain, he left this world. He raised his children well and made the wife through his strategies and business but he was not remembered but the amazing thing was that, when he died they buried him with a costly casket, the burial party was wow! The children renovate his house and rebuilt the church building after his death. Everyone at the wake-keeping was talking of his good deed including me but what a pity he served in vain. When i was leaving the event centre that day in tears, I learnt a new lesson that one must not joke with his life, tackle problems with conqueror stance, you mustn’t watch your life destroyed.
The question is Why Would I Served In Vain? John 10:10 The devil is the thief and he does through some spiritual forces to debar you from your benefits either making you to misbehave before your helpers or cause a total forgetfulness about you.
Reasons you need to Pray:
- If God uses you and men don’t bless you Luke 8:1-3
- If you served well and were not wished well
- If you Love people and never reaped Love in return
- If you are never honour in the midst of people no matter your good deeds
- If you always dream that you lose precious things then you need to pray.
