SERVICE – WAITING ON THE MASTER FOR INSTRUCTIONS
By DIGC 23 July 2021
Service involves waiting on the Master for instructions.
SCRIPTURE: His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. John 2:5
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Service involves waiting on the Master for instructions.
In our earlier studies we saw that service is a covenant just like the covenant of supernatural supply. Our anchor Scripture reveals that if we serve the Lord, He shall bless our bread and water. This means, if you do your part in serving God, you don’t need to beg Him to do His part in blessing you.
You know, as long as the earth remains, seed-time and harvest shall not cease (Genesis 8:22). If there is a seed time, you don’t need to beg for harvest time. In the same way, if there is a service to God, there must be a blessing from God.
Now, what is kingdom service all about?
- Service involves waiting on the master for instructions.
Service involves waiting on the Master like Apostle Paul when he said to Jesus Christ, Lord, what wilt thou have me do? Acts 9:6
At the wedding in Cana of Galilee, when they ran out of wine, there were people on standby waiting to be sent. They were called servants. Mary the mother of Jesus said to the servants, “Whatsoever he said unto you, do it.” (John 2:5).
This is the heart disposition of a true servant. It is the heart that says, “Lord, I don’t own myself, my time, and my resources. You made me for yourself. I am available. I am ready. I am on standby to run your errand”.
This is what it means to wait for the master’s instructions.
Remember this: Service involves waiting on the master for instructions.
- Make up your mind to serve God totally and wholeheartedly.
- Wait on the Master, Jesus Christ for instructions.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to serve You dedicatedly. Help me to always wait on You for instruction and direction, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

REFLECTION: What errand are you currently running for the LORD? When was the last time you received a burden or an instruction to do something for the LORD? Was it done?
