What does God look for in His servant? Cleverness? Ability? Strength? Talent? Above all, He looks for faithfulness. If you are willing to obey Him in whatever He ask of you, He will see to it that you have all the ability and strength you need to succeed in what He ask.

Serving God is a privilege, not a burden. If God gives you an assignment, count yourself blessed that He considers you faithful enough to trust you with it! Don’t concern yourself about whether you have the ability needed to get the job done. That’s in God’s hands. He has more than enough strength to carry out His plans. What’s important is that He chooses to include you in His activity.

If you have failed to do what God has asked you to do, don’t be surprised if He doesn’t give you a new assignment. If He let you to serve in some capacity in your church and you refused because you felt inadequate, you were really saying God is unable to carry out His plans. Do you wonder why no new word is coming from God for your life? If you will go back and do the last thing He told you, trusting Him to give you strength, you will then be ready for what He has in store for you next. You will know that God considers you faithful when He trust you a new opportunity to serve Him.

“I thank Jesus Christ our Lord, who has given me strength, that He considered me faithful, appointing me to His service.” - 1 Tim. 1:12

Then SUDDENLY the bucket tips and a great flood of refreshment crashes down on all below!
In the Book of Revelation, the Bible describes golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints (Revelation 5:8). In other words, the prayers of God's people collectively fill heavenly bowls with sweet aroma, much like the burnt offerings did in days of old. In Revelation 8, we discover what these bowls are used for:
"Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden alter w…
