|3 Keys In Serving God Consistently by Peterzion: 7:01am On Jul 12, 2020|
Therefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us , and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. Hebrews 12:1 KJV
Serving God requires consistency. It is your consistency in serving God that determines how big your victory will be. When you do things half way you either get no result or get half result. But when you do things in a complete way, you’ll definitely get an outstanding result. Most of the times, we are not always patient with God because we want everything to happen fast. God has always been the one that has been patience with us right from the creation of the universe. Though, I understand that we’re in the jet age, but things might not happen that way, because t God’s thinking is far higher than ours and his ways is far higher than ours.
Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord .  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Let’s take fore instance, a student of any level in academics, he or she must start from the basics. He must go through some learning, test and finally an examination before he can be promoted to the next level. For the student to be promoted and to get outstanding result, he must be self disciplined and consistence in doing the things that are right, if not, he might not get promoted or even graduated.
The same thing applies to an apprentice. If an apprentice is learning a trade, he must keep coming to the field in order to learn more and to also add to the knowledge he had already acquired. He cannot afford to be outdated and stagnant because his service or trading might not be needed even it’s eventually needed, there might be limitations because of his lack of knowledge.
Many a great people in the Bible were a consistent and persistent lovers of the things of God. They’re always doing the right thing always despite their challenges and oppositions. We must learn from these people. David, Joseph, Daniel, Esther etc. Are a great examples.
Some times, God tests us with a blessing, in so doing, he uses that breakthrough to test our faithfulness and consistency, but it’s a pity that some fumbled along the way and finally later missed out on the big packages. Either you’re still waiting on the lord for something, or you want more because he’s the river that never runs dry, just be consistent in serving him.
Here Are 3 Keys to be Consistent
1. Self disciplined
You cannot be consistent if you’re not self disciplined. You must make up your mind not follow the crowd. Because to follow the crowd is to be lost in the crowd. Many people were following Jesus in the crowd but only the woman with the issue of blood got her divine healing because she was focused and was determined not to get lost in the crowd. She was in the crowd while going to touch the hem of his garment but she was not lost in the crowd, she was self disciplined, focused and determined. That brings us to the second one which is
Determined people are always successful. They never give up no matter what happens, they just kept on going no matter the oppositions. Joseph and Daniel are a great examples. The former was thrown in a pit, while the latter was thrown in to the lion’s den. Yet they never gave up, they were still determined, and the at the end, they became a commander.
Be determined; be strong. Don’t be vague and thoughtless, but have a plan and work your plan. God, through Christ, has provided a way for us to live an amazing life, but we need to continually make choices that agree with God. You have one life to live, so live it fully and refuse to drift along, letting other people and circumstances make your decisions for you.
Anyone who wants to be consistent in serving God must be determined so stay determined.
You must be focus if you want to be consistence in serving God. You must not be carried away by the wind. A man of focus has vision and a man of vision escape confusion. Peter was walking on the sea because his eyes was focused on Jesus. The moment he looked at the wind and removes his eyes from Jesus, he began to sink. That simply means Looking unto Jesus is the key focus of living a victorious life, looking away from Jesus is the distraction of this world and is defeat.
Hebrews 12:1-2 KJV
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us , and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
In order for you to be consistent in serving God, you must avoid any form of distractions and lust of this world. Look unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith. Our God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him, he’ll surely reward your faithfulness.
God bless you.
If you’re reading this, I believe you have surrendered your life to Jesus, but if you’re yet to be born again please kindly pray this prayer in faith.
“Father in heaven, I know that I am a sinner , and I pray now that Jesus will come into my life and take control. I am sorry for my sins and need to have them forgiven and washed away with the blood of Jesus. I want Jesus to be my saviour. Prepare my heart so that I can be with those that are in heaven. Help to faithful to you and to grow more like Jesus. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
God bless you.

TheSourcerer:Nothing would happen to you bro. although believers in this useless nonexistent Jewish god say he'd throw you into some eternal furnace and if you serve him you'd be sent to some eternal happiness place. Carrot and stick at its finest.

Putting all these points into consideration, one must understand that good doesn't come easy
Just as gold is refined with fire before the end product, one must endure challenges to achieve whatever he desires
But you must first accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior because he is the way the truth and life ( John 14:6),
And at such, you must have faith in him and believe that he is the rewarder if those who earnestly trust in him (Heb. 14:6)

But your God permits war and slavery before He changed in the new Testament.
Jesus too knack his head for ground too in the Bible when he was praying!

God does exist, just as you need a decoder/antenna to know there are signal, so you need the Holy Spirit to know God exist. And knowing a signal exist does not require the direct use of the 5 senses(touch, smell etc)
God exist and we shall all receive the reward for the works we did on earth, whether good or evil. The human body is too complex to conclude there was no God. Every building or design has an architect or designer or fabricator, so also we human. We were designed by God and of course there can be only one God who would be the creator of the world, and not many as in African gods, India gods and other countries saying this is their god. Whether it is Jew or African or whichever it is, there ought to be one God, and we all know that even traditional Africa worshippers have their worship centres in hidden places where they are reduced to a corner or a jungle which is not characristic of a true God. God is God and everyone should worship Him and as such should not have His worship place in hidden places as seen in traditional worship, and guess what, there were African gods in Africa dominating africa, but when Christianity came, Africans left them for the better
