“The Spirit says, take heed that you do not lose what you have worked hard for. For there is a continual river of reward and blessing for the taking, but it’s a time to look at each area of your life and reassess your direction in some things. By doing so, you shall prosper and your hard work will be protected.”
Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked for, but that you may
be rewarded fully (2 John 1:8 NIV).
The Book of Second John was a letter written to a lady who was a dear friend of the apostle. In the few short verses, he mentions his love for her in the Lord and encourages her to keep that love and hold fast to the word she learned early on. It seems from the letter that she may
have been veering off track slightly and needed some admonition from John. In verse 8, he encourages her to watch carefully so that she doesn’t let go of everything they had worked for. It seems she was making some decisions that were putting the ministry work they had accomplished together at risk and John wanted her to reassess her direction.
We all need to make occasional adjustments that will keep us from veering off course. Otherwise, we risk losing some things we have worked hard for. That could apply to our personal spiritual walk, ministry, occupation, certain relationships, family matters, finances, and
more. We can make these adjustments with the help of the Holy Spirit and quality people in our lives who are willing to tell us the truth, like John did for his friend. Then the things you have worked hard for will be protected and you will enjoy the reward.
Lord, show me the areas where I need to make adjustments. I commit to making them as You reveal it. I thank You that my hard work will prosper and I will enjoy the reward from it. Amen.
