And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. (Psalms 90:17 KJV)
Growing up, we had two homes, one in the city and another in our rural home. Every school holiday would be spent in the rural area, the main occupation was agricultural activities. Depending on the time of the year, it would be preparation of the ground, planting, maintenance and eventually harvesting and preparation for storage. It’s not something I looked forward to.
It was always busy for all the people but come harvest time, others would reap more than others. Our fields always yielded more, some of the people in the village started accusing us of using some kind of juju or negative spiritual powers to get a good harvest. They did not understand the secret for the success. They had the same size of fields, applied the same inputs and perhaps even better but at harvest time we reaped better than them.
My mother’s secret was simple, she prayed and committed the works our hands to God everyday. As a result, God who establishes gave us good results. Today, I believe the Lord wants to establish the work of your hands. It does not matter what your profession or nature of work is, if committed to God, he will make you shine in darkness and make you rise above all your peers.
When any work lacks the establishment of God, it becomes toil. Toil is when you are putting in more yet you reap nothing or little. It feels like you are working and putting the money in a pocket with holes in it. This is coming to an end in Jesus’ name. The Lord is establishing the work of your hands despite the area you are in! Those who opposed you will find no room to do so. Those who criticised you will be silenced by your results.
I pray for your establishment. Like Daniel and his friends, may you become ten times better than your competitors.
The works of my hands are blessed. Everything I touch with my hands to do is yielding a mighty harvest because Jehovah is establishing me.
