TO SURRENDER IS TO GAIN

What was your first job? You may have not enjoyed it, but I’m sure you remember it’s value to you. I swept the floors along with other janitorial duties at one of my grandfathers Dry Cleaners during my school breaks when I was 11 yrs old and was paid $4.25 an hour. Even a Cleaners needs to be cleaned.

The pay was minimum wage and family was not shown favoritism monetarily. I worked for the business through college, and over the years as I matured my tasks changed and with it pay increases.

In the same way, the Lord is cleansing His Church, and developing His family. He is strengthening and maturing Her so that she can handle more responsibilities. The pay increases can be compared to mature fruit. My last position was helping in the office in accounting. Our last position before the return of Christ we will give an account for the fruit we have developed.

This is a season of divine growth and maturing in the Body if you will yield to it. Some may outgrow you though only because of their surrender. If you want more pay in the Spirit, count the cost and do the work. I guarantee you the Lord will increase whatever you surrender to Him.

“But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless. Keep in mind that we who belong to Jesus Christ have already experienced crucifixion. For everything connected with our self-life was put to death on the cross and crucified with Messiah.” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:22-24‬ ‭TPT‬‬
